Event Details

Rising literary star (and University of Memphis instructor) Courtney Miller Santo returns with a new novel set right here in Memphis! Join us as we celebrate with food, drinks, and great conversations with Courtney herself!

 

About the book:

Renovating an historic Memphis house together, three cousins discover that their spectacular failures in love, career, and family provide the foundation for their future happiness in this warm and poignant novel from the author of The Roots of the Olive Tree that is reminiscent of The Postmistress, The Secret Life of Bees, and Kristin Hannah's novels.


Nearing thirty and trying to avoid the inescapable fact that they have failed to live up to everyone's expectations and their own aspirations, cousins and childhood best friends Lizzie, Elyse, and Isobel seek respite in an oddly-shaped, three-story house that sits on a bluff sixty feet above the Mississippi. Told in three parts from the perspective of each of the women, this sharply observed account of the restoration of a house built out of spite, but filled with memories of love is also an account of friendship and how relying on each other's insights and strengths provides the women a way to get what they need instead of what they want.  

 

Publisher's Weekly: "Santo (The Roots of the Olive Tree) turns home improvement into a metaphor for self-discovery in this well-crafted novel."
