Happy to have just finished my dear friend Lise's latest novel. What a treat. Focused on a single mom and her two teenaged daughters who become immersed in The Tempest when a Shakespeare troupe arrives to their tiny island outside of Seattle. All three are cast in the play where drama ensues as mom and daughter vie for the same handsome New York actor playing one of the clowns. Portrait of the single hippy mom who struggles to make ends meet is lovingly rendered. Several moments in the book I thought, "How did Lise capture my life so clearly?" A lovely read, check it out!
