About this title:
Having recently turned forty, Iris Greeneder feels the "buts" taking over her life. She is all but published, all but a professor and all but married. A shot at literary success comes with a sudden impulse to write about her mother, Katherine Morrissey, who had written two fantasy novels of a planned trilogy. There was never a third book. When Iris was nine, Kay went off to attend a writer's conference and died in a hotel fire, registered as another man's wife.
Now, with the urging of Kay's former literary agent, Iris begins the search for the third and final manuscript which she believes holds clues to the mysteries of Kay's life -- and death. And through her search she begins to realize that she is not the only one interested in her mother's past, and that the lost manuscript might hold more secrets than she ever expected.
Product Description: Many years ago, Iris Greenfeder's mother disappeared. They were living at Hotel Equinox where Iris's father was the manager and where Iris's mother wrote delicate, powerful fantasies. Then she took a train and never returned, dying in a hotel fire in Brooklyn where she was registered as another man's wife. Returning to Hotel Equinox, now a struggling academic, Iris needs to find the truth about her mother; some keys are held in those fantastical writings and others in the memories of those who knew her. Kay Greenfeder, it seems, was a woman without a past. But as Iris begins to untangle the secrets of years before, she realises that the past was very different to what she had believed, and much more dangerous...
