Product Description

After the success of The Storied Life of A J Fikry, Zevin’s new book is happily just as wonderful.  Aviva Grossman’s life is ruined when her illicit affair with a Florida congressman is leaked into the media. She moves away, changes her name to Jane Young, and becomes an events planner. She builds a new life for herself and her daughter, Ruby. The story is told by four different women’s perspectives: Aviva, her mother – Rachel; Ruby; and Embeth – wife of the congressman. Far from being disjointed, Zevin cleverly weaves the story into tight unity. It’s well-written, engaging, deceptively smart and a wonderful social comment on the double standards of sexual infamy; lovely bookclub choice.
