Critics and readers loved Lisa Scottolines first collection of true-life stories, which only encouraged her - now shes back with these all-new, exciting adventures. Shes farther down the road now, and the scenery has changed - ex-husbands Thing One and Thing Two are in her rear-view mirror, daughter Francesca has moved into an apartment, and Lisas finding the silver lining in her empty nest, which has lots more room for her shoes. And some things have stayed the same - Mother Mary is still the feistiest octogenarian on the planet, who wont part with her recipe for tomato sauce or her thirty-year old bra.
In this book Lisa and Francesca spill all their family secrets - which sound a lot like yours, if you understand that three generations of women is the formula for spontaneous combustion.
Inspired by her weekly column entitled, "Chick Wit" for The Philadelphia Inquirer, this is a book youll have to put down - just to stop laughing.
