Summary
"An only child, Deborah Burns grew up in prim 1950s America in the shadow of her beautiful, unconventional, rule-breaking mother, Dorothy--a red-haired beauty who looked like Rita Hayworth and skirted norms with a style and flare that made her the darling of men and women alike. As a child, Deborah revered her charismatic mother--but Dorothy was a woman full of secrets with a troubled past, a mistress of illusion whose love seemed just out of her daughter's grasp. In vivid, lyrical prose, Saturday's Child tells the story of Deborah's eccentric upbringing and her quest in midlife, long after her parents' death, to uncover the truth about her mother and their complex relationship. Still caught in a wrenching cycle of love and longing ,Deborah must confront the reality of her mother's legacy--and finally claim her own"--
