The Dearly DepartedStop sign one motel Yet allies surface; even high school tormentors have grown up in unforeseen and gratifying ways Just possibly Sunny begins to think she wasn’t as beleaguered as she felt she was And maybe her mother’s life was richer than anyone suspected Add to the mix a chief of police whose interest in Sunny exceeds his civic duty and you have the makings of an irresistibly beguiling tale from an author who writes with all the wit and wry authority of a latter day Jane Austen.

    review The Dearly Departed 103 The Dearly DepartedI like Elinor Lipman's books Her writing style is light and insightful and funny and deft however this one seemed to fall short of her usual mark as it was a bit too predictable I loved the characters and loved that it's a nice easy readbut I find that I really preferred her other books That said let me defend The Dearly Departed Her story has a great premise the daughter of a single mother and the son of a single father learn that their parents have died at the same time from a gas leak that leadto carbon monoxide poisoning The strange thing is that arriving to the double funeral they find they look uncannily alike they both have wispy prematurely white hair a feature they apparently shared with his father Lipman doesn't keep us in suspense we pretty much learn right away that he is the father to both of them the daught
