I loved this book. Although I usually don't like books set in cities,I liked the Manhatten setting. The character had a great view of life. Although she was comfortable with both the upper class and the lower class, she was constantly making sharp observations about both. Great dialogue, great characters and great ending.

Abandoned by ther mother before her first birthday, occasionally "parented" by her father (when he wasn't in prison!) Amy Lincoln basically raises herself, gains a scholarship to a New England boarding school, then goes to Harvard, then to Columbia School of Journalism. Now a reporter for a prestigious magazine, she doesn't know who she is or how to connect.

Amy's search for her mom becomes a search for a place to belong.

Funny observations on contemporary life and a great read.

Susan Isaacs peppers this work with her off-the-wall humor. I read her for her descriptions if for not anything else. You will find what she says will lift at least one corner of your mouth in a smile if she doesn't make you guffaw.

A story that comes along quietly but surprises several times. Have read this twice. Funny and contemplative.

I stayed up so late last night trying to finish this book that my vision was totally blurred. Had to pick it up this morning for the last few pages.

All-in-all a good book. The search for a parent becomes the theme around which a poignant love story takes place. Without spoiling it for anyone, the slow start is quickly overtaken by the compelling story of a seious writer who almost outthinks every situation.

Susan Isaacs is always a good read!
