Publisher's Summary

Two women at the opposite ends of marriage are trying to answer the same question: When should you fight to save a relationship, and when should you begin to let go?

On their 35th wedding anniversary, Gwyn Huntington and her husband, Thomas, invite friends and family over for a most unusual celebration. Their home, Huntington Hall, has been in the family for generations after surviving the Great Hurricane of 1938, which tore Montauk apart. Instead of celebrating their life there, Gwyn and Thomas are toasting their divorce.

The weekend also marks the first time that their son, Nate, brings his fiancée, Maggie, home to Montauk. But Maggie finds herself wondering if it will be the last, because she discovers a secret Nate has kept for years.

A multigenerational novel about love, family, and what it means to build a life with someone, The Divorce Party brings us two immensely appealing women: Gwyn, at the end of her marriage, and her future daughter-in-law, Maggie, at the beginning. Though they make very different choices, both women ultimately discover how to create the lives that they most want to lead.

What the Critics Say

"Endearingly quirky....[a] charming, offbeat debut...that winningly explores the romantic choices we make." (USA Today)
"Such a satisfying read....The relationships among her cast are complicated, fraught and tender. Her story reads sweet but real." (The Washington Post)

    "Meh. can't get those hours back."

    The full story didn't live up to the hype of the synopsis. And it ended with a whimper. i am unimpressed. 2.5 stars. Decent performance. But the ends of her words trailed off.
