Joyce Maynard recommends
Little Monsters (2023)
Adrienne Brodeur
"Adrienne Brodeur brings to life, with her unerringly sharp eye, another complicated family, populated by brilliant, damaged characters who alternately love and drive each other crazy. Brodeur conveys an understanding of Cape Cod beyond the life of casual summer vacationers - a mysterious and beautiful coastal world where nature, not summer rentals, dominates in all its wonder - and of the demanding, infuriating patriarch who presides over the landscape. With rare compassion, she shows how it is possible to love the same people who may have hurt us most - and to forgive them their trespasses."
The Law of Bound Hearts (2004)
Anne D Leclaire
"Once again, Anne LeClaire has given life on the page to characters we care about. Here is the work of a natural born storyteller."
