Constance, by Patrick McGrath.

McGrathFeeling never loved by her father, Constance marries Sidney and feels completely loved.  She feels “my life begins the day I married an Englishman called Sidney Klein and said good-bye forever to Ravenswood and Daddy and all that went before.”  (I’m not giving much away quoting this, don’t worry.  It’s the novel’s second sentence.)
