9780143116431: Bed & Breakfast: A Novel

Penguin is pleased to reintroduce readers to ?born storyteller? (The Washington Post) and New York Times bestselling author Lois Battle and her delightful holiday tale of Josie Taternall and her South Carolina bed and breakfast. After her best friend?s narrow brush with death, Josie decides that life is too short to let old grievances stand in the way of family togetherness. This year, she resolves, her three grown daughters?the girls she raised so carefully yet with such mixed results?will come home for Christmas. With her uncanny ear for Southern sensibility and her sharp-eyed wit, Battle gives us the perfect upstairs/downstairs comedy and a portrait of a family in all its tender, touching, and flawed glory that readers young and old will cherish.

Review:

In this Southern story of female relationships and family dysfunction, a vision of mortality provokes a widowed mother to reunite her three adult daughters. A decade of misunderstandings, ill will, and blame has kept the Taternalls apart. Bed & Breakfast recounts the story of the family coming back together over Christmas. The characters are well crafted and believable; readers are likely to recognize some personalities from the Taternall clan among their own friends and family.

About the Author:

Lois Battle's seven novels include Bed and Breakfast, Storyville, War Brides, and A Habit of the Blood, (all Penguin). She lives in Beaufort, South Carolina.
