Elisabeth Hyde: Go Ask Fannie

Celebrated author Elisabeth Hyde earned critical acclaim for her last two novels, In the Heart of the Canyon and The Abortionist’s Daughter. Now Hyde returns with Go Ask Fannie, an unforgettable tale about strong-willed people who make hard choices and big mistakes before learning that love and forgiveness are the only things that matter. With an arresting blend of humor, tragedy, and a hint of mystery, Go Ask Fannie introduces the Blaire family of New England, brilliantly moving back and forth between 2016 and 1984, the year their world turned upside down. 

With its powerful sense of time and place, Go Ask Fannie offers an intimate look at a woman’s struggle to balance her growing family and her own life goals with her husband’s career and political ambitions. Moving and eminently satisfying, Hyde’s latest novel shows the author in top form. 

Elisabeth Hyde is the author of five critically acclaimed novels, most recently In the Heart of the Canyon, a New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice and a People Magazine Great Read. Her fourth novel, The Abortionist’s Daughter, became a bestseller in Great Britain after being selected as a Summer Read by The Richard and Judy Show. Trained as a lawyer, she worked for the U.S Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., before she started writing full-time. She lives in Boulder with her husband.
