~The New York Times bestselling novel from the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer~

`Miller's Valley reads like a companion to Elizabeth Strout's Olive Kitteridge' Elisabeth Egan, author of A Window Opens

Mimi Miller's family have lived in Miller's Valley for generations and at times it feels like nothing ever changes - until now when the town is under threat. But as Mimi looks back on the span of her life in this place, she confronts the toxicity of secrets, the dangers of gossip, the flaws of marriage, the risks and inequalities of friendship, loyalty and passion. Home, she acknowledges, is somewhere it's just as easy to feel lost as contented.

A captivating, beautifully crafted story of family and memory that recalls the work of Anne Tyler or Elizabeth Strout, Miller's Valley reminds us that the place where you grew up can disappear, and the people in it too, but all will live on in your heart for ever.

'Qualities and shades of love are this writer's strong suit, and she has the unusual talent for writing about them with so much truth and heart that one is carried away on a tidal wave of involvement and concern' Elizabeth Jane Howard

'Mesmerizing. Quindlen makes her characters so richly alive, so believable, that it's impossible not to feel every doubt and dream they harbor . . . Overwhelmingly moving' New York Times

`We are so lucky to have Anna Quindlen in our literary lives. With her big heart and her amazing humanity she reminds us all of our blessings' -- Alice Hoffman, bestselling author of The Dovekeepers
