Lured by the fabled Cape Cod light, single mother and history teacher Claire Noble is starting the adventure of her dreams when her life takes a dramatic turn: Her estranged daughter returns with a backpack full of problems, her father reveals a secret that could tear the family apart, and the man she’s about to marry is suddenly unsure he’s willing to take on Claire’s responsibilities. Caught between her dreams and family demands, Claire is about to make the toughest decision of her life when a chance encounter with another man causes her to question everything she thought she wanted.
“I can think of no writer I’d rather have sing me songs of the sea, even sad ones, than Maryann McFadden. The characters in So Happy Together will speak to you, and the best ones . . . all have the ocean in their voices.”
–Anne Rivers Siddons, author of Off Season and Colony
“In So Happy Together, Maryann McFadden deftly weaves a story of three generations of women and the men who orbit around them. With a sure touch, she writes about the mother-daughter bond, the simple pleasures to be found in cooking, the pervasive nature of guilt, and the power of forgiveness.”
–Christina Baker Kline, author of The Way Life Should Be and Bird in Hand
“So Happy Together is an honest book . . . that will resonate with many women who struggle to care for family members and themselves.”
—The News & Observer (Raleigh, North Carolina)
