Rise and Shine by Anna Quindlen

Rise and Shine is narrated by Bridget Fitzmaurice, a social worker drawn to her sister's phenomenal success as hostess on the top rated morning show in the country. When Meghan Fitzmaurice accidentally utters obscenities into an open mike, her world unravels. She'd been on edge since her husband told her he wanted a divorce, and her profanities cost her job and reputation. Bridget and Meghan were always close, but these events upend their lives and their relationships. Each must take stock of herself and find their place once again in each other's world. Anna Quindlen's novel both satirizes the wealthy lifestyle of rich and famous New Yorkers and explores the family relationships that provide real fiber to a life well lived. Rise and Shine has received mixed reviews with the St. Petersburg Times saying, "Quindlen tells the story with the skill and compassion that have made her previous books popular. Rise and Shine should be no different, and truth to tell, it's a little more fun."
