Description

Meredith Martin Delinn just lost everything: her friends, her homes, her social standing-because her husband Freddy cheated rich investors out of billions of dollars.

Desperate and facing homelessness, Meredith receives a call from her old best friend, Constance Flute. Connie's had recent worries of her own, and the two depart for a summer on Nantucket in an attempt to heal. But the island can't offer complete escape, and they're plagued by new and old troubles alike. When Connie's brother Toby-Meredith's high-school boyfriend-arrives, Meredith must reconcile the differences between the life she is leading and the life she could have had.

Set against the backdrop of a Nantucket summer, Silver Girl novel delivers a suspenseful story of the power of friendship, the pull of love, and the beauty of forgiveness.

Reviews

Hilderbrand captivates with racy narrative, topical references, and characters who are both familiar and memorable.

-- "People"

Hilderbrand's tone is breezy and easy as always.

-- "Entertainment Weekly"

The Ponzi scheme that Meredith's husband was involved in is a perfect setting for our times, and her glam social life had everything under the sun. It was all taken away quickly; so watching her remember the things that made her who she was and the woman she will have to become makes for an enjoyable read.

-- "Seattle Post-Intelligencer"

It provides a pacey read, with colorful characters that have fascinating motivations. I couldn't get them out of my head for days.

-- "Sunday Express (London)"

Hilderbrand's specialty is grown-up relationships in grown-up situations.

-- "Cape Cod Times"

In Hilderbrand's absorbing latest...much of the novel is told in flashback as Connie and Meredith work through their crises, but Hilderbrand's talents keep those memories as resonant as the present day. Longtime fans and newcomers alike will delight in this timely, touching story of loss, love, friendship, and forgiveness.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Beach reading par excellence.

-- "Library Journal"

Another winner from Hilderbrand, who in this sensitive and suspenseful tale succeeds in portraying a seemingly unlikable character, besieged Meredith, and making her human.

-- "Booklist"

Hilderbrand does a wonderful job of painting a picture of a confused and angry yet lovestruck wife. She reminds us of the extent women will go to to protect their husbands, even if their husbands are in the wrong. The incorporation of past events is woven seamlessly into the present, and all of the details and characters are crucial to the plot....All in all it is a solid story.
