As she grapples with the aftermath of her puzzling daughters sudden death, Irene Dunne befriends two teenage girls and a mysterious but larger-than-life Hungarian woman who, it turns out, is involved in an informal baby-selling ring that has unexpected ramifications as the novel unfolds.Redolent of the timeless Demeter-Persephone myth of a mother searching for her lost daughter, this brave novel is a brilliant portrait of sorrow and love, of memory and courage. Written in the clear, evocative style that Teleky has been praised for, Winter in Hollywood adds a memorable new character to the annals of fiction about aging in its subtle exploration of the meaning of the end of life.
