Description
Winner of the Colorado Book Award for Fiction "All the feels of a This Is Us episode." —BooklistWhen Murray Blaire invites his three grown children to his New Hampshire farm for a few days, he makes it clear he expects them to keep things pleasant. The rest of his agenda—using Ruth and George to convince their younger sister, Lizzie, to break up with her much older boyfriend—that he chooses to keep private. But Ruth and George arrive bickering, with old scores to settle. And, in a classic Blaire move, Lizzie derails everything when she turns up late, cradling a damaged family cookbook, and talking about possible criminal charges against her.This is not the first time the Blaire family has been thrown into chaos. In fact, that cookbook, an old edition of Fannie Farmer, is the last remaining artifact from a time when they were a family of six, not four, with a father running for Congress and a mother building a private life of her own. The now-obscured notes written in its pages provide tantalizing clues to their mother's ambitions and the mysterious choices she once made, choices her children have always sought without success to understand. Until this weekend.As the Blaire siblings piece together their mother's story, they come to realize not just what they've lost, but how they can find their way back to each other. In this way, celebrated author Elisabeth Hyde reminds readers that family survival isn't about simply setting aside old rivalries, but preserving the love that's written between the lines.

        In Go Ask Fannie, readers follow the adult Blaire children, Lizzie, George, and Ruth, as they convene for a weekend visit in New Hampshire at the behest of their father, Murray. The Blaire children carry with them a host of issues, but perhaps the biggest one is that it has been more than 30 years since the accident that took their mother, Lillian, and brother, Daniel, from them. When a beloved keepsake of Lillian's, a Fannie Farmer cookbook, is discovered ruined, it is considered a travesty. As the Blaire family grapples with the present and the past, readers learn about the enigmatic Lillian, an aspiring writer, and the struggle she faced in reconciling who she wanted to be with who she needed to be. Writing in a style both affecting and realistic, Hyde (The Abortionist's Daughter, 2006) gives readers a family that could mirror their own, including the characters, the conversations, and the treasured family keepsake. With all the feel of a This Is Us episode, Hyde's latest novel will delight readers.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)
