Anna Quindlen’s fiction has taken on heavy topics (e.g., domestic abuse in Black and Blue), but Rise and Shine tackles lighter issues like family dynamics and self-discovery. When Meghan Fitzmaurice, anchor of a popular morning news program, calls a tech billionaire a ”f—ing a–hole” before her mic is turned off, she’s promptly booted by the network — and tumbles, headlong, into the family she’s skirted for years: her husband, son, and sister Bridget, a social worker. How Meghan finds herself, and what happens to her family in the process, is the stuff of midlist fiction everywhere. In Quindlen’s hands, it’s skillfully written but still nothing special.
