Marjorie Plum isn't your average washed up prom queen. After all, her New York City prep school was too cool for a royal court. Yet, ten years after high school graduation, she is undeniably stuck in the past and aching for that metaphorical tiara. But when her life takes an unexpected turn, she is forced to start over, moving in to a tiny box of an apartment in Brooklyn with a musician roommate who looks like a pixie and talks like the Dalai Lama. Desperate to pay rent, she starts tutoring a precocious 11-year-old girl-who becomes the unknowing Ghost of Marjorie Past, beginning a surprise-filled journey towards adulthood, where she learns about herself from the most unlikely sources: a rekindled childhood love, a grumpy (but strangely adorable) new boss, even her tutee. In Nora Zelevansky's charming second novel, Will You Won't You Want Me?, Marjorie soon realizes only she can decide: who is the real Marjorie Plum?

Dearest Hugh offers a window into courtship during the early twentieth century through a collection of three hundred love letters exchanged between Gabrielle Drake and Hugh McColl from 1900 to 1901, illustrating the hopes and sacrifices of an upper-class couple forging a marriage in a small southern town.A resident of Bennettsville, South Carolina, Hugh McColl enjoyed the social status that came with being the son of the president of the Bank of Marlboro. The daughter of the clerk of court for Marlboro County, Gabrielle Drake was a new graduate of Converse College who was then teaching at Bennettsville Graded School. The couple became engaged in May of 1901 and wed that November. Although most of their interactions were chaperoned, Hugh and Gabrielle could speak more freely in their correspondence and exchanged notes - often two or three a day - detailing their private emotions, desires, and anxieties. The letters address equality within the relationship, Gabrielle's career, choosing furnishing a home, and allocation of household chores.Hugh's letters are earnest, sincere, affectionate, and sometimes suggestive. Gabrielle's writings are coquettish and playful, but she also anguishes over choosing between a career and a spouse. The attitudes expressed by both Hugh and Gabrielle also speak to the ambitious drive and community-minded dedication the McColls would later instill in their family, including grandson Hugh McColl, the former president and CEO of Bank of America.Hurley's introduction places the correspondence into the broader context of recent scholarship on courtship rituals and the changing educational and social status for women during this time in American life.
