Book of the Month

Bestselling author Anna Quindlen has a long history with Book of the Month '“we've featured many of her titles over the years, and she even served as one of our judges in the early 2000s. Her latest work is a coming of age novel set in Miller’s Valley, Pennsylvania, in the 1960s. The novel follows a young girl, Mimi Miller, through the changing eras of her life, as family secrets are revealed and she overcomes the heartbreaks of growing up and falling in love. The publisher calls it 'œa masterly study of family, memory, loss, and, ultimately, discovery, of finding true identity and a new vision of home.' If you’re looking for a meaningful, reflective novel with rich, complex characters, we hear it’s worth the read.
