Overview

“Delinsky knows the human heart and its immense capacity to love and to believe.”
Washington Observer-Reporter

“A first-rate storyteller” (Boston Globe), the incomparable Barbara Delinsky is renowned for capturing the essence of contemporary life: from day-to-day victories and setbacks to momentous events that profoundly affect us all. Nowhere is that more true than in her beloved novel Suddenly. Set in a small Vermont town, this deeply heartfelt, emotionally charged novel explores the enduring consequences of one irrevocable act—a classic from the New York Times bestselling author of A Woman Betrayed, For My Daughters, and The Passions of Chelsea Kane.

Suddenly Barbara Delinsky Morrow, Apr 2008, $18.95 ISBN: 9780066214580 In Tucker, Vermont, pediatrician Mara O'Neill died from carbon monoxide poisoning. Her best friend and practice partner thirty-nine years old Dr. Paige Pfeiffer is stunned by the news. However, even more shocking to the pediatrician is when the autopsy reveals Valium in Mara¿s blood, the police rule most likely suicide. Paige refuses to believe that is true as her friend was euphoric over the adoption of a child from India. Pediatric practice partner Angie Bigelow feels Mara¿s death is the end of her once happy marriage to Peter Grace, who was having an affair with the deceased. Paige is in denial that her friend since college is dead. However, she honors Mara by caring for the Asian infant that the late doctor was adopting at the same time struggling with her desires for Noah Perrine, acting head of the private school where she coaches the Mount Court Academy¿s Girls Cross Country team. --- This is a reprint of an early 1990s character study. Ironically, Barbara Delinsky provides readers a deep look at Paige and to a lesser degree Angie but through them Mara. The story line makes a case that it takes a well rounded person to do a good job raising a child. Although the independent women SUDDENLY seem too dependent on men, fans will appreciate the deep look at each of the females as Mara¿s death cuts through them like a surgical knife in this entertaining fiction. --- Harriet Klausner

This was a good family drama book. It was set in a small town and was about the lives of of the doctors in a pediatric practice. A friend and partner,Mara commits suicide and sets off a chain of avents. The plot was good and kept my interest.

As is usual with a Barbara Delinsky book, this one is a page turner. Even though it is a reprint, the topic is ageless. The story is good and the characters are likable. Mostly, it taught me that no matter how well you think you know someone or how long you have known them, there is usually something held back. Sometimes the revelations are shocking. Sometimes they bring forth a bit of guilt. ("If only I had known"). I would say a very good read!
