Synopsis: In Rhode Island Blues, Fay Weldon brings her deliciously wicked humor and seasoned wisdom to a story set, for the first time, in America. Two strong, colorful women, Felicity, age eighty-three, and her granddaughter, Sophia, dominate the story. Sophia, a thirty-four-year-old film editor living in London, thinks Felicity is her only living relation. But when she travels to Rhode Island to help Felicity settle into a retirement center, she begins to unravel mysteries about her family history that make her suspect she may have more relatives than she’s ever known. As Sophia comes to terms with her grandmother’s past, Felicity focuses on life in the present: she learns how to gamble, falls in love, and uncovers nursing home fraud. In Rhode Island Blues, Fay Weldon creates a dizzying story of romance, mystery, and mayhem.
