Book Club will meet to discuss Inheriting Edith: A Novel by Zoe Fishman.
Maggie, a single mom who supports herself by cleaning apartments in New York City, inherits a Sag Harbor house from a former employer. The catch? It comes with an inhabitant: the deceased’s eighty-two-year old mother Edith, who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Maggie and Edith are both skeptical about this arrangement, but a tenuous bond forms, and Edith, who feels the urgency of her diagnosis, shares a secret that she’s held close for five decades, launching Maggie on a mission that might just lead them each to what they are looking for.
