Family is both too much and never enough in these novels from Amanda Eyre Ward (The Jetsetters) and Phoebe Fox (A Little Bit of Grace). In The Jetsetters, seventy-year-old Charlotte Perkins drags her adult children along on an ill-fated cruise; in A Little Bit of Grace, Grace McAdams desperately searches for her last remaining relative off the coast of Florida. As the lead characters in both novels learn to find peace within their tumultuous family lives, they may just find themselves, too. Join Amanda Eyre Ward and Phoebe Fox for a conversation about characters connecting and reconnecting with family—or trying to.
