Summary

In this touching novel by New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer, a young woman’s search for fulfillment on Nantucket leads her to a mysterious manuscript and a life-changing friendship. Now available for the first time in audio!

When Sara marries Steve Kendall, she leaves Boston behind and the newlyweds move to his native Nantucket. Though Sara loves the gorgeous island, she is less than thrilled with her husband’s friends, a tight-knit group that leaves her feeling left out. Trying unsuccessfully to have a baby, Sara’s only solace comes from her work as a freelance editor.

When she stumbles upon several provocative pages mixed in with one of her manuscripts, she becomes determined to track down the reclusive author. Fanny Anderson has been writing romance novels for years, hiding away in her huge Cambridge house. After Sara insists on meeting Fanny, the two begin a fruitful collaboration and a profound friendship.

Whining got old!

Both female characters seemed one dimensional! Got tired of baby stuff and aging diva. Did not finish!

Tiresome

It started out as a promising story, but I kept waiting for either of this book’s female protagonists to experience some personal growth and quit whining. I had to move on with an hour left of the novel. I don’t care what happens to fanny or Sarah. Too much reiteration of their personal problems made the characters impossible to like.
