Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692282645, Paperback)

Have you ever selected a book club book, and the discussion it generated went completely flat? You were left with just answering the "did you like the book?" question, and there was not much more to say? Whether for your personal reading or for your book club, you will not be disappointed if you choose Alice Leader's newest novel! Positioned as the best book club discussion book of the year, You'll Love it Here, sparks a robust conversation on a myriad of intellectual and emotional topics: racism, religious bias, the sandwich generation, dementia, bullying, self-esteem, mother-daughter relationships, aging, etc. Add in the strong character development, humor and plot twists, and you will be eager to talk about this book! The legendary and impossible diva, Ellena Aldeburgh, is being moved by her anxious daughter into Holden Manor where the elite of Cleveland, Ohio prefer to end their days. Surrounded by luxury and friends known since nursery school, Holden feels like a kind of boarding school, with aged versions of all familiar types – the bully, the sycophant, the ditz, the side-kick. It is a place where everyone knows everyone’s story, including the inevitable end. Ellena’s affair with the elegant Franklin Brown, Holden’s only African-American resident, sets off unintended consequences that surprise the residents and upend their certainties. Ellena, troubled by reveries from her past, dives beneath a lifetime of dark, deeply held emotions --- and finds something wonderful. “… A very nice addition to a much loved library … so vivid and clear. The setting and atmosphere Alice Leader captures so beautifully. And that’s such a gift. Few writers … seem really to have it, and she does – in spades!” Miranda Seymour
