Humor, family drama and an unlikely friendship meld together to make Wingate’s latest novel shine. The author’s real strength is in her character development, giving each character a unique and likable personality — even when it’s a prickly one on the surface.
J. Norman Alvord has deteriorated physically since his wife died and is unable to care for himself, so his adult daughter hires teenager Epiphany Salerno to prepare meals and keep him safe. Epiphany and J. Norman forge an alliance that proves beneficial to both of them as they discover secrets in each of their pasts. (NAL ACCENT, Jul., 416 pp., $15.00)
