Venus Rising by Marisa Smith. September 9, 2019.
When Julie, married mother of three, unexpectedly leaves her husband and moves in with her mother Cora, she's shocked at what she finds in her childhood home. Insults, galoshes, and English muffins fly as the women fight for control of Cora's life as Julie comes to grips with her own mid-life crisis. It's a hilarious and deeply-perceptive story of aging gracefully – or sometimes not so gracefully – and how we try to care for one another in the face of life's challenges.
