What if the person you love the most hurt more than any other? What if that person was your own mother?

Maine - the huge American summer bestseller - is now available in paperback.
The Kelleherīs beachfront holiday house creaks under a weight of secrets. A place where cocktails follow morning mass and children eavesdrop, it is home to matriarch Alice, who would trade every floorboard for a chance to undo the events of one night, decades before. As summer arrives and the women in Aliceīs family descend on the shore, it soon becomes clear that these mothers and daughters have been deeply hurt by the people they love the most. But as this fierce, irrational love burns ever brighter, anger builds and painful secrets are unearthed.
Rich and exhilarating... The dialogue sizzles... Maine does not falter. You donīt want this novel to end. Lily King New York Times Book Review
