Carol Anshaw's contribution to the library of mother and daughter
relationship novels is well-crafted and refreshing. LUCKY IN THE
CORNER is a series of defining moments in the life of Fern and her
mother Nora, as their nontraditional family tests its limits and
unexpectedly grows stronger and closer together.
Things have been tense between Fern and Nora since Nora left Fern's
father and spent the next few years engaged in a series of brief
and dangerous love affairs, during which time Fern turns to her
best friend Tracy and her Uncle Harold for support and comfort.
