“Those looking for magical realism won’t have far to go, as Amy Impellizzeri’s Lemongrass Hope (Wyatt-MacKenzie, Oct.) is already earning a spot on many to-read lists. With Jacquelyn Mitchard singling it out as a fresh new story, this debut explores love through time-bending layers and ordinary connections.”
Set in the past, and present,
LEMONGRASS HOPE is a captivating and unpredictable love story, with a dose of magical realism and time travel, that fans of authors such as Audrey Niffenegger, Alice Hoffman, and Toni Morrison will appreciate and embrace.
Like Liane Moriarty's The Husband's Secret this novel weaves together ordinary lives and events to tell an extraordinary tale of connection, loss, renewal, and of course, hope.
As Kate Sutton's decade-long marriage to Rob erodes and unravels, Kate fears that the secrets she guards from the world, including Rob's emergency room proposal, and a whirlwind love affair from her past, have always doomed her fate. When she unwittingly receives a glimpse at what her life could have been like had she made different choices all those years ago, it is indeed all she could have ever wanted. A confirmation of her greatest hope, and her greatest fears.
LEMONGRASS HOPE will draw you in with characters so relatable and real, you will cheer for them one moment and flinch the next. A tale that invites you to suspend disbelief-or perhaps decide to believe once and for all-in the potent power of love and connection over time and choice.
Oh, and the dress. There's this lemongrass dress . . .
