A blog by the staff of the Thomas Ford Memorial Library
Alice Brill is at a crossroads in her life. Her father has dementia, her marriage is falling apart, her children have left home and have problems of their own, and she has been downsized from her job as a book editor. All through this she has had a feeling of dread that she cannot explain. As she tries to get on with her life, she finds herself re-examining her childhood and her parent’s marriage. By the award winning and critically acclaimed Hilma Wolitzer, The Doctor’s Daughter was so compelling I had a hard time putting it down.
