Three women on the run take refuge in a roadside nightclub and come face-to-face with a lion. One's a runaway bride and kleptomaniac, one's a recovering alcoholic, and one's a housewife who's been made to believe she has no imagination. Oh yeah, and the lion, Marcel, is a retired circus performer. Working in the club, the women come to feel right at home as they navigate the back roads of the human heart. When their pasts catch up with them, they have to decide if they're willing to fight for the strange, charmed life they've made with Marcel. Told with Ephron's signature witty dialogue and loveable characters, The Lion Is In is a truly delightful read about friendship, love, and learning how to salsa with the kind of the jungle.
Praise for THE LION IS IN by Delia Ephron: "One of the sharpest observers of human behavior around, Ephron, with her trademark mastery of smart, snappy dialogue, delivers a read-in-one-sitting, feel-good celebration of resiliency and hope."
--"Booklist" "Three women embark on a journey of self-discovery, facilitated by a giant feline, in Ephron's whimsical but winsome third novel."--"Kirkus Reviews" "Imagine if Siegfried & Roy had written "Water for Elephants "... "The Lion Is In" is off to the races from the first sentence. [A] fun ride."--"Tampa"" Bay"" Times
""The best kind of chick lit -- an engaging feminist romance from which the reader emerges with a welcome mood boost. Twinkling with wit and warmth, it also packs a moral punch: We need to forgive not just each other, but ourselves, make amends wherever we can and just ease the heck up already."--"Newark"" Star Ledger"" ""Ephron fans and newcomers alike will find plenty to enjoy in this fun, refreshing, and incredibly touching read."--"Publisher's Weekly"" ""This wistfully wacky story features a stolen wedding dress, AA meetings, a driving instructor as romantic hero, a cranky nightclub owner and a God-fearing villain. As Marcel roars his wisdom, each woman becomes brave enough to free herself from her own cage."--"More "" ""Readers seeking a heartfelt, offbeat adventure will adore Ephron's fragile but feisty heroines...The perfect getaway for readers who long to reconnect with their inner selves, this quirky comedy's sense of wonder will delight and inspire."--"Shelf Awareness" "Sweet, satisfying, and worth the wait."--"New York Times Book Review"
