George and Lizzie Overview

Nancy Pearl’s George & Lizzie is a testament to the nuance and complexity of love, the enduring hold of childhood scars, and the challenge of self-acceptance. The novel follows Lizzie Bultmann, the lonely daughter of two emotionally distant behavioral psychologists, and George Goldrosen, the product of a happy marriage between an adoring housewife and an admirable working father. They come together with vastly opposing understandings of family, tradition, and love, and with the help of George’s optimism and determination, Lizzie eventually treads the path of healing and self-forgiveness.
