Up Island, Anne Rivers Siddons's bestselling title in recent years, spent 17 weeks on the New York Times list, seven weeks on the Wall Street Journal list, and 15 weeks on Publisher Weekly's list. This story of an Atlanta woman who retreats to Martha's Vineyard to redefine her life will make the paperback of Up Island the hottest read on the beach.
Molly Bell Redwine has always been a model of success and contentment. But when her husband of 20 years leaves her for a younger woman and her mother dies, her family scatters to the four winds and Molly is set adrift. Needing to come to terms with this cataclysm and figure out who she is now, Molly visits friends on Martha's Vineyard and eventually purchases a small abandoned cottage on a remote up-island pond. Seasons change and it is there, as she tends a pair of crotchety old swans and makes new friends, that she settles into a new life, a new love, and a new self.
"One doesn't read Anne Rivers Siddons's books; one dwells in them". -- Chicago Tribune
