"Book Choice For The Month...."
I noticed this book, Suddenly, by Barbara Delinsky, on my bookshelf and thought I would read it this month. I have just recently started reading Ms. Delinsky's books and found that she is an engaging writer who knows how to interweave several stories about complex relationships and keep her books interesting to the end.
Suddenly is a story set in the idyllic small town of Tucker, Vermont, life flows at a rhythmic pace for thirty-nine-year-old pediatrician Paige Pfeiffer. But when Mara O'Neill, Paige's best friend and medical partner, inexplicably commits suicide, Paige's comfortable world is shattered. Temporarily caring for Mara's newly adopted baby daughter while she comes to grips with her grief, Paige clings to the hope that, in time, she'll understand why Mara chose to end her life, and Paige's own orderly life will return.
