Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a sparkling novel that calls to mind Carrie Fishers Postcards from the Edge, Judy Sheehan has written a story full of humor and heart, wisdom and hope, about the rich, often fraught relationship between mothers and their daughters.

A successful theater director in New York, Leigh Majors has worked hard to become more than just “the daughter of the famous Bridie Hart.” But Leighs orderly world is turned upside down when she receives a very special birthday gift from her husband: a Broadway-ready play entitled Women in Hats . . . and her overbearing mother demands to play the starring role.

Bridie ruled the red carpet during the golden age of Hollywood, but off-camera, she loved the highball (and her own way) a little too much. Now, as Bridie tries to reinsert herself into Leighs life, the estranged pair must work together amid a crazy cast of characters to create what could be Broadways next major hit, even as they unearth painful memories from their troubled past. But before the curtain rises, Leigh will discover that the biggest drama of all just may be her own life.

Praise for Judy Sheehans . . . And Baby Makes Two

“A gift from the writing gods.”

-Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Perceptive, moving, and often comic . . . replete with intrigue, delicious little surprises, and high emotion.”

-The Christian Science Monitor

“Sheehan has the magical touch. . . . A wonderfully engaging tale.”

-Oklahoma Gazette
