From the internationally bestselling author of four books, including The Opposite of Me , a vibrant, compulsively readable novel about two married couples who pursue a dream to open a bed-and-breakfast in small-town Vermont.
In her previous works including The Best of Us , "rising star" ( Library Journal ) Sarah Pekkanen captivated readers by penning "refreshingly introspective, sharply realistic, and tenderly humorous" novels ( Booklist ) that had readers "flying through the pages" (Hoda Kotb, Today show). Now, in Catching Air , Pekkanen turns an unflinching eye on the tangled relationships of two pairs of thirty-somethings.
A chance to run a B&B in snowy, remote Vermont--it's an offer Kira Danner can't resist after six soul-crushing years of working as a lawyer in Florida. As Kira and her husband, Peter, step into a brand new life, she quells her fears about living with the B&B's co-owners: Peter's sexy, irresponsible brother Rand, and Rand's wife, Alyssa...who is essentially a stranger.
For her part, Alyssa sees taking over the B&B as the latest in a string of adventures. Plus, a quiet place might help her recover from the news that she can't bear children. But the idyllic town proves to be anything but serene: Within weeks, the sisters-in-law are scrambling to prepare for their first big booking--a winter wedding--and soon a shy, mysterious woman comes to work for them. Dawn Zukoski is hiding something; that much is clear. But what the sisters-in-law don't realize is that Dawn is also hiding from someone...
Relatable and dynamic, Catching Air delves deeply into the vital relationships that give shape to women's lives.
