TREASURE DISCOVERED…

It is time for another search of our TBR shelves/piles for those sadly neglected books from the past.  Carole’s Random Life in Books is hosting this event.

Nowadays, I am searching my 2020 purchases, which is progress, I guess.  Of course I have only actually read a handful of the “neglected books” I have discovered.  So far.  But discovery is the first step.

Today I am featuring one of my paperback books purchased in March 2020:  Life and Other Inconveniences, by Kristan Higgins.

 

LIFE AND OTHER INCONVENIENCES

I have enjoyed this author, which is why I bought this book.  And because I have been adding print volumes to my bookshelf, I have gone a little overboard with those purchases.

Description:  Emma London never thought she had anything in common with her grandmother Genevieve London. The regal old woman came from wealthy and bluest-blood New England stock, but that didn’t protect her from life’s cruelest blows: the disappearance of Genevieve’s young son, followed by the premature death of her husband. But Genevieve rose from those ashes of grief and built a fashion empire that was respected the world over, even when it meant neglecting her other son.

When Emma’s own mother died, her father abandoned her on his mother’s doorstep. Genevieve took Emma in and reluctantly raised her–until Emma got pregnant her senior year of high school. Genevieve kicked her out with nothing but the clothes on her back…but Emma took with her the most important London possession: the strength not just to survive but to thrive. And indeed, Emma has built a wonderful life for herself and her teenage daughter, Riley.

So what is Emma to do when Genevieve does the one thing Emma never expected of her and, after not speaking to her for nearly two decades, calls and asks for help?

What have you discovered today?

  1. Haha! Yes, discovery is the first step. I have had a lot of discoveries and not much follow through. I think you do better on that front than I do. 🙂 This sounds good, Laurel-Rain. I haven’t read any of her books before.
