Despite its sometimes too-neat storyline, readers may find merit in this novel’s exploration of the challenges of aging loved ones.

Synopsis

The Bennett Women is an absorbing portrayal of three women who are at a crossroad with one another and the world around them. Muriel Bennett is a feisty eighty-two-year-old artist who struggles to maintain her independence. For the past forty years, she has happily resided at her Oregon lakefront home. She wants to live on her terms, but soon discovers how little control she has over her life. Susanne Bennett is a fifty-four-year-old CEO of a Fortune 500 technology company located in California. She leads more than three hundred thousand employees worldwide, but has little influence over the two people who matter most—her mother and daughter. Caught between two generations and a chaotic career, she must find a way to slow down before it’s too late. Lilia Bennett-Parker is a gifted twenty-two-year-old cellist who is in her last year of college at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. As she prepares for the most important year of her life, her world begins to unravel, making her question everything she has ever wanted. As tension mounts, the Bennett women will confront buried truths about their lives, and they will begin to know themselves and each other in wondrous new ways. This tender yet unflinching story examines what moves us from daughter, mother, and grandmother to something much deeper.
