Description

Product Description

From the author of The Three Weissmanns of Westport, a wise, clever story of New York in the ''60s

It''s 1964. Eleven-year-old Fin and his glamorous, worldly, older half sister, Lady, have just been orphaned, and Lady, whom Fin hasn''t seen in six years, is now his legal guardian and his only hope. That means Fin is uprooted from a small dairy farm in rural Connecticut to Greenwich Village, smack in the middle of the swinging ''60s. He soon learns that Lady-giddy, careless, urgent, and obsessed with being free-is as much his responsibility as he is hers.
So begins Fin & Lady, the lively, spirited new novel by Cathleen Schine, the author of the bestselling The Three Weissmanns of Westport. Fin and Lady lead their lives against the background of the ''60s, the civil rights movement, and the Vietnam War-Lady pursued by ardent, dogged suitors, Fin determined to protect his impulsive sister from them and from herself.
From a writer The New York Times has praised as "sparkling, crisp, clever, deft, hilarious, and deeply affecting," Fin & Lady is a comic, romantic love story: the story of a brother and sister who must form their own unconventional family in increasingly unconventional times.

Review

“Full of invention, wit, and wisdom that can bear comparison to Austen''s own.” ―The New York Review of Books on The Three Weissmanns of Westport

“A clever, frothy novel . . . Schine playfully probes the lies, self-deceptions, and honorable hearts of her characters.” ―The New YorkerThe Three Weissmanns of Westport

I loved this book! It is difficult for me to pinpoint the reason, but it captivated me from the first page until the last. The characters were wonderfully developed and so likable. My emotions ran the full gamut from laughing out loud to becoming misty-eyed because I felt so connected to Fin, Lady, Mabel, the suitors, and even the dog. And the unknown narrator had me guessing almost until the identity was revealed.

I lived in Manhattan during the sixties, and Ms. Schine perfectly portrayed the era. Like many of my friends, I became wrapped up in the anti-war marches, anti-segregation protests and hardcore rock ''n'' roll at the Fillmore East. Parts of Lady''s character reminded me of myself - children of the well-off playing the role of faux hippies.

In the final analysis, though, this is a love story, albeit somewhat unconventional. Two orphaned half-siblings, one much older than the other, taking care of each other, despite the age difference. I was sorry when I reached the epilogue, but the story could not have ended any other way.

The moment you start reading Fin & Lady, you will be drawn in. The characters are immediately developed and the story moves at a smooth pace. They are actually brother and sister with a large age difference. Their parents have passed away and now Fin is left with only Lady in his young life. He is a sensitive, bright young man who is quite observant. Lady is a beauty trying to dismiss her family wealth, but could not survive her lifestyle without it. Fin and Lady are actually co-dependent, but Lady''s magnetism is not just saved for Fin. We understand as the story continues with many of her admirers playing significant roles in their daily lives. Each is as interesting as the next. Fin has his favorite and it is truly a special relationship. The plot changes when Lady flees and truly finds she is able to love. No spoiler alert, but it is an unexpected ending. I loved it.

I enjoyed getting to know Lady, the eccentric, flamboyant older sister, and Fin, the young orphan who adores Lady, even though she has no clue how to raise him. They do have some most wonderful times together, and I was engaged until the part, somewhere in the middle, when Lady is trying to find herself and a husband before she turns 24; that part and her potential suitors are a tad tedious but.... the ending comes full circle with an interesting twist and pulls it all together in a sad, poignant way. I liked it but didn''t love it and don''t know if I would choose another C. Schine novel.

Parts of it were pretty unrealistic, although maybe that''s the point
Reviewed in the United States on August 2, 2018
Sort of an interesting story about the relationship between a boy and his stepsister guardian -- raising the question of who was taking care of whom. Parts of it were pretty unrealistic, although maybe that''s the point. I did not find it riveting but it''s a quick read

This book appealed to me because I am the much older half-sister to one brother and that is the situation in this story. Fin is 8 or 9 when his parents both die and he must live with his half-sister, Lady. The story unfolds within the 1960''s and 70''s New York City and brings in the historical context. Fin''s growing love for Lady and all the emotional whirlwind living with her make for a compelling read that is more character-driven than plot-driven and the ending is bittersweet but works quite well.

If you are in the mood for some charming characters and a fun read, this novel is for you. I enjoyed the story and the characters. And, finally, the 60’s in New York and beautiful Capri.

What a wonderful, delicious read! This novel is a treat you don''t want to stop enjoying. It is the story of a young boy, Fin, orphaned and sent to live with his wildly unpredictable older sister, Lady. The relationship between the two is the spine of the story, and since both characters are so interesting, the reader us drawn deeply into their lives. (Fin reminded me of a modern-day Pip.)
Set mainly in New York inthe 1960''s, the book explores the meanings of "family" through the eyes and heart of its protagonist.The ending is a surprise but deeply satisfying.
