From Barbara Delinsky, the New York Times
bestselling author of Blueprints and Sweet Salt
Air, a brand-new novel about a woman in hiding finding
the courage to face the world again.
Mackenzie Cooper took her eyes off the road for just a
moment but the resulting collision was enough to rob her not
only of her beloved daughter but ultimately of her marriage,
family, and friendsâ€”and thanks to the nonstop media
coverage, even her privacy. Now she lives in Vermont under
the name Maggie Reid, in a small house with her cats and
dog. Sheâ€™s thankful for the new friends sheâ€™s madeâ€”though
she canâ€™t risk telling them too much. And she takes
satisfaction in working as a makeup artist at the luxurious
local spa, helping clients hide the visible outward signs of
their weariness, illnesses, and injuries. Covering up scars
is a skill she has mastered.
Her only goal is to stay under the radar and make it through
her remaining probation. But she isnâ€™t the only one in this
peaceful town with secrets. When a friendâ€™s teenage son is
thrust into the national spotlight, accused of hacking a
powerful manâ€™s Twitter account, Maggie is torn between
pulling away and protecting herselfâ€”or stepping into the
glare to be at their side. As the stunning truth behind
their case is slowly revealed, Maggieâ€™s own carefully
constructed story begins to unravel as well. She knows all
too well that what we need from each other in this difficult
world is comfort. But to provide it, sometimes we need to
travel far outside our comfort zones.
From a multimillion-selling master of womenâ€™s fiction,
Before and Again is a story of the relationships we
find ourselves inâ€”mothers and daughters, spouses and
siblings, true companions and fair-weather friendsâ€”and what
kind of sacrifices we are or arenâ€™t willing to make to
sustain them through good times and bad.
