Book Details

Hilarious Family Drama

Lindsay Spencer, a free spirited, single woman in her late twenties, returns to her parents’ apartment after she’s in an auto accident for which her father, Charles Spencer, feels guilty of causing. Charles dotes on his only daughter, but her mother, Florence Spencer, is a more realistic critic of her daughter’s shortcomings. Florence, loving, but ordered, lofty, and patronizing, is dismayed to learn that her husband has invited Lindsay to live with them while she recuperates from the auto accident. When Florence learns that Lindsay’s boyfriend, Claude (an aspiring comedian), is also moving in with them, she is furious. Florence gives Charles an ultimatum: either he uninvites them or Florence is leaving him … for good! The side-splitting conflicts of lifestyles, living arrangements, and Florence’s “secret life” not only bring about a greater understanding between mother and daughter, but also lead to a hilarious conclusion.
