A lush, thrilling debut about a year in the life of a uniquely beguiling young woman, set in the wild, alluring world of a famous downtown New York restaurant. "Let's say I was born when I came over the George Washington Bridge..." This is how we meet unforgettable Tess, the 22-year-old at the heart of this stunning debut. Shot like a bullet from a mundane past, she's come to New York to escape the provincial, to take on her destiny. After she stumbles into a coveted job at a renowned Union Square restaurant, we spend the year with her as she learns the chaotic, punishing, privileged life of a "backwaiter," on and off duty. Her appetites are awakened, for food, wine, knowledge and experience; and she's pulled into the thrall of two other servers--a handsome bartender she falls hard for, and an older woman whose connection to both young lovers is murky, sensual, and overpowering. These two will prove to be Tess's hardest lesson of all. Sweetbitter is a story about discovery, enchantment, and the power of what remains after disillusionment.

"This is a novel about the coming-of-age of America and the violent conflicts between races and cultures that mar our history. Gibbons' hero, Reuben, embodies the covert mingling of blood that fueled the hatred and paranoia of the South. Reuben, half Choctaw and half white, loses the only parent he knew when his Choctaw mother dies in 1896. He is taken in by a generous black woman who graces him with his full name, Reuben Saved Sweetbitter, and teaches him to read. Reuben grows up handsome, strong, independent, smart, and adept at navigating the treacherous currents that divide whites, blacks, and reds. But then he falls in love with Martha, the fair-skinned, wild-haired, willful, and sensual daughter of a prominent lawyer. Their forbidden passion is enough to get them killed in this land of virulent racism and the KKK. Clearly, this is an adventure story and a romance, but it's that and much more. Reuben muses that there are "too many worlds," and Gibbons captures the rhythm of each, describing every nuance of attitude, from fear to compassion to cowardliness to courage."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet comes a novel of suspense and passion about a terrible mistake made sixty years ago that threatens to change a modern family forever. Twenty-five-year-old Cassie Danvers is holed up in her family’s crumbling mansion in rural St. Jude, Ohio, mourning the loss of the woman who raised her—her grandmother, June. But a knock on the door forces her out of isolation. Cassie has been named the sole heir to legendary matinee idol Jack Montgomery's vast fortune. How did Jack Montgomery know her name? Could he have crossed paths with her grandmother all those years ago? What other shocking secrets could June’s once-stately mansion hold? Soon Jack’s famous daughters come knocking, determined to wrestle Cassie away from the inheritance they feel is their due. Together, they all come to discover the true reasons for June’s silence about that long-ago summer, when Hollywood came to town, and June and Jack’s lives were forever altered by murder, blackmail, and betrayal. As this page-turner shifts deftly between the past and present, Cassie and her guests will be forced to reexamine their legacies, their definition of family, and what it truly means to love someone, steadfastly, across the ages. – PopSugar, included on holiday gift list
