Betsy Lerner

The Bridge Ladies

After a lifetime defining herself in contrast to her mother’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” generation, Betsy Lerner finds herself back in her childhood home. After her mother’s surgery, it falls to Lerner to take care of her. She expected a week of tense civility; what she got instead were the Bridge Ladies. Impressed by their loyalty, she saw something her generation lacked.

A 50-year-old Bridge game provides an unexpected way to cross the generational divide between mother and daughter. Lerner takes us on a powerfully personal literary journey, where we learn a little about Bridge and a lot about life.
