Then She Found Meby Elinor Lipman
Synopses & Reviews
April Epner teaches high school Latin, wears flannel jumpers, and is used to having her evenings free. Bernice Graverman brandishes designer labels, favors toad-sized earrings, and hosts her own tacky TV talk show: Bernice G!
But behind the glitz and glam, Bernice has followed the life of the daughter she gave up for adoption thirty-six years ago. Now that she's got her act together, she's aiming to be a mom like she always knew she could. And she's hurtling straight for April's quiet little life....
This is the story of what happens to a Latin teacher's quiet life when her biological mother, a flamboyant talk-show hostess, decides to track down her daughter after having given her up for adoption. "A bright, lively and funny look at an eccentric mother-daughter relationship".--The New York Times Book Review.
