Littlesquid | 4 comments Hi, I am looking for book title and author of book set in 20th century small town America. It's about a divorced father with teenaged daughter. The town is/was ruled by rich industrial family of which only a very old lady with viscous cat remains. The father has ambitions to open a bookshop. Towards end they travel to Cape Cod for a holiday, I think. At some point a football game is described in detail. Thank you for your help.

Is it genre fiction - romance, etc.? When did you read it? About what decade is it set? Author male or female? Remember the cover?

Littlesquid | 4 comments Hi. General fiction- literature. I read it last year. I think it was set in the 1990s.. Author could be make or female. Can't remember the cover...

Littlesquid | 4 comments It may start with the history of the rich people who rule the town and the river they diverted around their estate in the 1800s. But there is a small chance that is another book altogether.
