Read full description of the books The Ex-Debutante: A Novel:
When Carlisle Wainwright Cushing, of the old-moneyed Texas Wainwrights, moved to Boston three years ago to work at one of the cityâ€™s most prestigious divorce law firms, she thought she had escaped the high society sheâ€™d grown up in â€“ after all, no one in Boston, not even her fiancÃ©, knew she was an heiress. But now, Carlisle has been lured back to Texas to deal with her motherâ€™s latest divorce and the family-sponsored 100th annual debutante ball, which is on the verge of collapse. Sheâ€™s afraid sheâ€™ll never get back to Boston, at least with her reputation intact, especially when good â€™ole Southern boy Jack Blair shows up on the opposite side of the divorce court, making her wonder if heâ€™s going after her mother in the proceedings--or her.
Carlisleâ€™s trip home challenges her sense of who she really is and forces her to face her familyâ€™s secrets. Funny, smart, and poignant, The Ex-Debutante is a story about the risks one woman must take if she stands a chance of finding herself, real love, and her place in that crazy thing we call family.
Read information about the authorLinda Francis Lee is a native Texan now calling New York City home. Linda's writing career began when her article "There Is No Finish Line" was published in her university's quarterly magazine. But she got sidetracked from writing when she started teaching probability and statistics. Later she found her way back to writing, and the Atlanta Journal Constitution called her breakout novel, Blue Waltz, "absolutely stunning."
Now Linda is the author of nineteen books that are published in sixteen countries around the world, in languages as diverse as Japanese and Russian. Two of her most recent novels are in development for feature films, and she is in the process of co-developing a television series set in her beloved Texas. Lee's next novel, her twentieth, is a large work of fiction about the redemption of a man, and will be released in 2011.
When Linda isn't writing, she loves to run in Central Park and spend time with her husband, family, and friends.
