The instant New York Times bestseller from one of the most beloved voices in women's fiction

An ever-growing legion of fans greets the publication of each new tale from the inimitable Jane Green. Her latest gem, Dune Road, is set in tony Highfield, Connecticut, where recent divorcee Kit Hargrove has joyfully exchanged the requisite diamond studs and Persian rugs of a Wall Street Widow for a clapboard Cape with sea-green shutters and sprawling impatiens. Her kids are content, her ex cooperative, and each morning she wakes up to her dream job: assisting the blockbuster novelist Robert McClore. Then an unexpected series of events forces Kit to realize that her blissfully constructed idyll and blossoming new romance aren't as perfect as she thought. A warm, witty, and gloriously observed meditation on the challenges of starting over, Dune Road is Jane Green at her absolute best.

Book Reporter

Green covers a lot of ground here --- in addition to focal point Kit, she also delves into the lives of both Tracy and Charlie as well as another half-dozen supporting characters --- and does so in a way that results in an impressionistic portrait of the hidden dramas that lurk behind those fresh...
