Robin has everything a girl could want. Thanks to her mother—the internationally beloved talk show host Mimi Schwartz—Robin’s got the money, the means and the connections to make even her wildest dreams come true. so why, then, does she choose to sit alone in a dark room watching endless reruns of you, you and Mimi?
Don’t ask Robin. She doesn’t know—not, at least, until the bizarre discovery of an old high-school ring propels her to ditch New York for a tiny Nova scotian fishing village. In her quest to solve the mystery behind the ring’s origin, Robin finds more than a renewed joie de vivre. she discovers love, the truth of her own background— and the shocking secret that helped make her mother a star.
It’s as if the picture suddenly blows up to a full-screen image. The rest of the room shrinks down to a little icon in the corner. I’m stunned. until this very second, I didn’t seriously believe Mimi had anything to do with Port Minton. Sure, she had the ring but—I don’t know—I figured I’d find some totally reasonable explanation for that. This is not reasonable.
I stare at the picture in the bulletin. It’s blurry and faded, but it’s definitely Mimi. What would a kid from new york be doing in a place like this? What would a Jewish kid be doing in a Baptist church bulletin?
