Praise for THE EX-DEBUTANTE by Linda Francis Lee
“Original with fresh sparks of wit, Lee offers a story about the importance of family, unconditional love and looking beyond the false surface of perfection. The Ex-Debutante battles the impossible need to both leave home and return home—and in the process she teaches us something about the grace of looking beyond image and embracing the messy imperfections of love, family and home.” –Patti Callahan Henry, bestselling author of Between the Tides
“I adored The Ex-Debutante and seriously read it in one don't-interrupt-me-on-penalty-of-death sitting. Linda's voice is so lively and vibrant and fun—and the story was completely compelling.” –Beth Harbison, bestselling author of Shoe Addicts Anonymous
“The Ex-Debutante is fun, witty and totally fabulous.” –Rachel Gibson, New York Times bestselling author of Tangled Up in You
