Reviews

"Zoe Fishman's INHERITING EDITH is a tragicomic delight, pairing single mother and professional house cleaner Maggie with prickly, resentful, 82-year-old Edith, thrown together in a Sag Harbor beach house after Edith's famous author daughter Liza takes her own life--and bequeaths the house and her mother to Maggie, her former friend and employee. Fishman deftly explores the intricate territory of mother-daughter relationships as well as the haunting specter of an Alzheimer's diagnosis for famously independent Edith. Throw in winsome toddler Lucy, the hilarious meddling of best friend/yenta Esther, and an intriguing potential suitor in the form of a local toy store owner, and you have a delicious literary chicken soup for the soul."--Mary Kay Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of THE WEEKENDERS
"A beautifully crafted story about second chances and life's big surprises. Warm spirited and emotionally rich, INHERITING EDITH celebrates the fine line between friendship and family. These characters will tug at your heart."--Jamie Brenner, author of The Wedding Sisters
"A heartbreaking story about life, love, and friendship that you'll want to devour in one sitting."--Erin Duffy, author of BOND GIRL and LOST ALONG THE WAY
