Product Description

All of her life, Epiphany Salerno has been tossed like a dandelion seed in the wind. Now, at sixteen, she must move to the low-rent side of Blue Sky Hill with her indifferent mother. Half Italian and half African-American, Epie doesn't fit in. Even worse, she must work where she's not wanted: in an upscale home on The Hill.

J. Norman Alvord's daughter has hired a teenager to stay with him the in afternoons. Widowed and suffering from heart trouble, Norman wants to be left alone. But in Epie's presence, Norman discovers a mystery--memories of another life and a woman who saved him. As summer comes to Blue Sky, two residents from different worlds and different generations will find that with unexpected friendship comes the key to unlocking family secrets hidden for a lifetime...

Publisher's Weekly

Wingate (Summer Kitchen) roots her tender tale in hope, redemption, and family by following two engaging characters in her latest entry to the Texas-based Blue Sky Hill series. Following the death of his wife, retiree J. Norman Alvord has shut himself off in his big home on the hill. Norman's only daughter thinks a nursing home is best, but Norman, who was on the scientific team involved with the first moon landing, considers himself independent, even virile. So a housekeeper is hired, and offers her mixed-race teenage daughter, Epiphany Jones, as an after-school cook. The friendship that Epiphany and Norman form begins a new chapter for both of them. Wingate's tale, unfolding alternatingly from Norman's and Epiphany's points of view, uncovers a mysterious memory from Norman's youth that eventually reveals siblings that he never knew about. Epiphany finds a mentor in Norman; in turn, she helps him understand the importance of family. Wingate effectively draws us into Norman's mystery, giving voice to elders who wish to be treated as adults as their own kin treat them like children. The early era of space exploration serves as an exciting backdrop to the kitchen sink drama. (July) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
