Obviously someone was living under a rock for a while because Sarah Jio apparently is quite famous. She was also magazine writer and after finding this out, I became more enlightened about main character in Morning Glory, who is also a former magazine writer (editor, in fact).
Morning Glory is the story of Ada Santorini, former editor of Sunrise magazine, who’s moved to a Seattle boathouse from NYC. She’s trying to escape from a tragedy that happened a couple years before and it’s still hard for Ada to face the repercussions of what happened that day. The boathouse community on Boat Street are friendly but at the same time, they’re all trying to hide what happened one fateful day in 1959.
Morning Glory isn’t a mystery novel in the Sherlock Holmes sense but it is the story of a woman trying to discover the past of the former owner of her house, a woman who is in many ways like her and was part of what happened that fateful night.
