An overgrown blackberry vine sparks a feud of epic proportion between a Martha Stewart caliber perfectionist and a reclusive architectural genius in Where’d you Go Bernadette by Maria Semple.  

Police reports, emails, hospital bills and an 8th grader’s diary entries paint vivid pictures from both sides of this contested Seattle fence. 

The escalating drama involves a psychological intervention, Homeland Security, a Russian crime syndicate, an Antarctic cruise and trauma counseling for a class of kindergarteners.   Fans of the ABC series Desperate Housewives will enjoy the improbable antics and over the top cattiness of Where’d You Go Bernadette as will anyone who's ever lived in a suburban neighborhood.
