Red Hook Road


In the aftermath of a devastating wedding day, two families, the Tetherlys and the Copakens, find their lives unraveled by unthinkable loss. Over the course of the next four summers in Red Hook, Maine, they struggle to bridge differences of class and background to honor the memory of the couple, Becca and John.
As Waldman explores the unique and personal ways in which each character responds to the tragedy--from the budding romance between the two surviving children, Ruthie and Matt, to the struggling marriage between Iris, a high strung professor in New York, and her husband Daniel--she creates a powerful family portrait and a beautiful reminder of the joys of life.

Elegantly written and emotionally gripping, RED HOOK ROAD affirms Waldman's place among today's most talented authors.
