Overview
Read Susan Breen's posts on the Penguin Blog.
A witty, honest, and hugely entertaining story for anyone who loves books, or has a difficult mother. And, let s face it, that s practically everybody . . .
On paper, Arabella Hicks seems more than qualified to teach her fiction class on the Upper West Side: she s a writer herself; she s passionate about books; she s even named after the heroine in a Georgette Heyer novel.
On the other hand, she s thirty-eight, single, and has been writing the same book for the last seven years. And she "has" been distracted recently: on the same day that Arabella teaches her class she also visits her mother in a nursing home outside the city. And every time they argue. Arabella wants the fighting to stop, but, as her mother puts it, Just because we re family, doesn t mean we have to like each other. When her class takes a surprising turn and her lessons start to spill over into her weekly visits, she suddenly finds she might be holding the key to her mother s love and, dare she say it, her own inspiration. After all, as a lifelong lover of books, she knows the power of a good story."
