Lucy Barton is torn from her life in Manhattan and sent to a tiny hamlet in Maine by her ex-husband and on-again, off-again buddy, William, as a terrified world slips into lockdown. In a little home tucked away against the gloomy, turbulent sea, Lucy, William, and their complicated past are all that is there for the ensuing few months.

“A moving story about a divorced couple locked together during the lockdown, and the love, grief, despair, and hope that enliven us even when the world appears to be crumbling apart.”

The Book Guide® Editor

The dread and difficulties that come with solitude, as well as the optimism, calm, and possibilities that those long, peaceful days might inspire, are beautifully depicted in this novel, which is replete with empathy and compassion. Deep human relationships that bind us together even when we are away, the agony of a loved one’s suffering, the void left by their passing, the hope of a new friendship, and the consolation of an old, eternal love are at the core of this narrative.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (2017)

This book is also fiercely and unapologetically socio-political and we love that. Evelyn’s story is one of being a woman in a man’s world. It is one of being a Cuban woman in a white woman’s world. It is one of being a bisexual woman in an era where attraction to women was demonized by the whole culture. It is one of hiding yourself for ambition, one of trying to decide which one takes precedent, one of aging, and one of never knowing whether your choices were right.
