Book Overview

A poignant breakout novel, for fans of J. Courtney Sullivan and Elin Hilderbrand, about a single mother who inherits a beautiful beach house with a caveat—she must take care of the ornery elderly woman who lives in it.

For years, Maggie Sheets has been an invisible hand in the glittering homes of wealthy New York City clients, scrubbing, dusting, mopping, and doing all she can to keep her head above water as a single mother. Everything changes when a former employer dies leaving Maggie a staggering inheritance. A house in Sag Harbor. The catch? It comes with an inhabitant: The deceased’s eighty-two-year old mother Edith.

Edith has Alzheimer’s—or so the doctors tell her—but she remembers exactly how her daughter Liza could light up a room, or bring dark clouds in her wake. And now Liza’s gone, by her own hand, and Edith has been left—like a chaise or strand of pearls—to a poorly dressed young woman with a toddler in tow.

Maggie and Edith are both certain this arrangement will be an utter disaster. But as summer days wane, a tenuous bond forms, and Edith, who feels the urgency of her diagnosis, shares a secret that she’s held close for five decades, launching Maggie on a mission that might just lead them each to what they are looking for.

  • Loved the Characters!

    The idea of inheriting a beautiful beach house really appeals to me! I loved the characters Zoe Fishman created in her book, Inheriting Edith. I can easily imagine my luck being much like Maggie’s… inheriting the house means inheriting a cantankerous elderly woman along with it. I fell in love with three-year-old Lucy. Kids speak their minds and always add to the fun of any novel. There was so much going on in this story, twists and turns I never saw coming. So entertaining! I also love the fact that the author left some of the plot threads open. Will we see a sequel? I certainly hope so.
