From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of
Alex & Eliza comes a return to adult fiction,
centered around a mysterious woman's birthday
celebrationâ€”and what it reveals about her past.
Ellie de Florent-Stinson is celebrating her fortieth
birthday with a grand celebration in her fabulous house in
At forty, it appears Ellie has everything she ever wanted: a
handsome husband; an accomplished, college-age stepdaughter;
a beautiful ten-year-old girl; two adorable and rambunctious
six-year-old twin boys; lush, well-appointed homes in Los
Angeles, Park City, and Palm Springs; a thriving career as a
well-known fashion designer of casual women's wear; and a
glamorous circle of friends.
Except everything is not quite as perfect as it looks on the
outsideâ€”Ellie is keeping many secrets. This isnâ€™t the first
birthday celebration that hasn't gone as planned. Thereâ€™s a
certain sixteenth birthday that sheâ€™s tried hard to forget.
But hiding the skeletons of her past comes at a cost, and
all of Ellieâ€™s secrets come to light on the night of her
fabulous birthday party in the desertâ€”where everyone who
matters in her life shows up, invited or not. Old and new,
friends and frenemies, stepdaughters and business partners,
ex-wives and ex-husbands congregate, and the glittering
facade of her life crumbles in one eventful night.
Beautifully paced and full of surprises, The Birthday
Girl is an enthralling tale of a life lived in shadow,
and its unavoidable consequences.
