|Plot Summary of The Essential Charlotte|
Dunne, Sep 2004, 12.95, 242 pp.
Thirty something Manhattanite Charlotte Stiles cannot believe that her mother Corrine just died. The “Ask the Doctor” research librarian is a bit off but not just because of the death of the only person who loved her (albeit from a distance).
The will shakes Charlotte to the core because Corrine's will states that in order for her daughter to inherit her Soho loft, she must live there for one year with her father, whom she thought had died over three decades ago. Charlotte cannot even look at him so how is she to live with William LaViolette for one year. One thing is for sure it is not by seeing a hunk of an actor. Her only help lives in San Francisco, but Paul is there for her encouraging her as they talk over the Net; that is not counting her chats with mom.
