Take Annie Gluck. Add Steven Fisher. Mix together and stand well back. Is it a problem of chemistry… or something more fundamental? Carlo Demirco is a master of the fashionable new art of creating flavoured ices, with a coveted position at the court of Louis XIV. When Henrietta dies suddenly, Louise and Carlo are sent to London as a gift to the grieving king. It soon becomes clear that Charles II wants Louise as his mistress, and his most powerful ministers intend to make sure she submits.

Now the only power he can wield is through his exquisite ice creams, he must decide… Where do his loyalties lie? Eighteen-year-old Natale lives in Monforte, a sleepy Italian town where nothing much happens.

Search XOXO After Dark

They have color. COLD, WET, AND miserable, she arrives at the row of gray mailboxes lining the side of the road, opens the door to her box, pulls out three pieces of mail, and quickly shoves them inside her coat to protect them from the rain. Ahead of them in the distance, someone is walking toward them.

She wonders who it could be. As they get closer, she figures out that the person is a woman. It would be hard to recognize anyone in that getup in this weather, but surely, Beth must know who it is.

The Way to Love

There are only so many people who would be out walking in this neighborhood in this weather on a Thursday in March. There are no weekenders or day-trippers out for a stroll on Nantucket today. Grover wanders over for a sniff, but the woman skirts by too quickly and is then behind them before Beth or Grover can learn anything more about her. Still curious after a few steps, Beth looks back over her shoulder and sees the woman at the row of mailboxes, toward the far end. Safe inside, Grover shakes himself, sending water everywhere.

See a Problem?

She removes her hat and coat, and the mail falls to the ground. She kicks off her boots. She peels off her wet socks and jeans, tosses them into the laundry room, and slips into a pair of fleece pajama bottoms and a pair of slippers. Feeling warmer and drier and immediately happier, she returns to the front door to collect the mail from the floor, then walks back to the couch.

Grover has returned to the braided rug. The first piece of mail is the heating bill, which will probably be more than their monthly mortgage payment. She decides to open it later. She ordered one push-up bra three Christmases ago, and they still keep sending her catalogs.

The last piece of mail is an envelope hand-addressed to her. She opens it. May all your wishes come true. Inside, the words Happy Birthday have been crossed out with a single, confident ballpoint blue line. He loves me.

Who sent this? Holding the envelope in one hand and the card in the other, she looks up at the fireplace mantel, at her perfectly centered wedding picture, and swallows. Her mouth has gone dry. She gets up and walks to the fireplace. She slides the iron screen aside.

Her hands are shaking. She clenches the envelope and card. If she burns them now, she can pretend she never saw them. This never existed. A swirl of unexpected emotion courses through her. She feels fear and fury, panic and humiliation. She closes the gate. The same could be said about love. This book upended my perceptions of both conditions, leaving me feeling with my mind and thinking with my heart. Everyone should read this book! Love Anthony dares to ask enormous questions, the big questions that bedevil all of us.

Better yet, Genova has the wisdom to know which ones can be answered, and which cannot. I read it spellbound and breathless. If you don't know Lisa Genova's work already, meet your new favorite writer, storyteller, enchanter.

Her characters are complicated people, with unique, believable and, sometimes frustrating struggles. But perhaps Genova's true mastery is in the way she never fails to give us very real people to love. The suggested questions are intended to help your reading group find new and interesting angles and topics for your discussion. We hope that these ideas will enrich your conversation and increase your enjoyment of the book. Introduction Love Anthony is the latest novel from the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of Still Alice and Left Neglected, about an accidental friendship forged between two women on a Nantucket beach; a friendship that provides peace to one, validation to the other.

Olivia is a thirty-something mother whose eight-year-old, nonverbal autistic son has recently died. Beth, a stay-at-home mother of three already living on Nantucket, is also recently separated after discovering her husband's infidelity.

LOVE ANTHONY by Lisa Genova | Kirkus Reviews

In an attempt to recapture a sense of her long-lost independence, she rekindles her passion for writing, determined to discover her identity again. But surprisingly, as she uncovers her own voice, Beth also finds herself channeling the voice of an unknown boy, a voice that will give both women the comfort and answers they need.

How much did you know about this condition before starting Love Anthony? Do you know anyone who has autism or an autistic person in their family? What significance does the setting of Nantucket play in this story? Would the story have been different if it had taken place in New York City or Chicago? Beth pulls a box out of her attic, filled with remnants from her old life, and is reminded of the woman she once was. If you were to go through a box from your attic, what items might you find? What do you think of the advice she offers Beth? Do you think the author accurately captured the voice of a young autistic boy in the Anthony chapters?

The Food of Love

I forgot about happiness. Anthony had autism, and every ounce of energy went into saving him. Her happiness was irrelevant…. And then, just when she was starting to realize that happiness and autism could co-exist in the same room, in the same sentence, in her heart, Anthony died, and happiness was no longer a concept she could fathom. And there was more to Anthony than his autism. Was it a singular event or a process? When Jimmy and Beth share their homework assignments given to them by Dr.

Maybe communicating through you gives you the something you need in this lifetime. Just like her. The more she wrote about Anthony, the more she realized that she was actually writing about herself. Can you find any others?

Meditations for Life

Which character did you relate to the most and why? Where do you see these characters in five years? Do you think it provides a satisfying ending to her story? To the novel as a whole? Another recurring theme of Love Anthony is faith — having faith, losing faith, and taking a leap of faith. Can you remember a time in your own life when you took a leap of faith?
