Limelight : a novel
By Amy Poeppel
A family’s move to New York City brings surprises and humour as their lives merge with the world of Broadway. Allison Brinkley–wife, mother, and former unflappable optimist–discovers that a carefully weighed decision to move her family from suburban Dallas to the glittery chaos of Manhattan may have been more complicated than she and her husband initially thought.
Go ask Fannie : a novel
By Elisabeth Hyde
When Murray Blaire invites his three grown children to his farm, he makes it clear he expects them to keep things pleasant. An old edition of Fannie Farmer’s cookbook is the last remaining artifact from a time when they were a family. The now obscured notes written in its pages provide tantalizing clues to their mother’s ambitions and the mysterious choices she made.
