Delta Girls by Gayle Brandeis

In this tale of seemingly unrelated stories, Izzy has been a nomad for all nine years of her daughter Quinn's life. For now, Izzy and Quinn have settled at the pear farm of the Vieira family in California. Even though Izzy is comfortable with the Vieiras, she's trying to keep a low profile and is very watchful of Quinn. Meanwhile, teenage figure skater, Karen, has just got a new partner, Nathan. He is risky, impulsive at times, yet he and Karen are a successful team. When the media descends on the farm, it's inevitable that Izzy's and Karen's worlds collide. While I liked Delta Girls, I felt that it was not as good as her last novel, Self Storage.
