Elizabeth and Jackson Shore married young, raised two
daughters, and weathered the storms of youth as they built
a future together. But after the children leave home, they
quietly drift apart. When Jack accepts a wonderful new job
offer, Elizabeth puts her needs aside to follow him across
the country. Until the sudden death of her father changes
Grieving and alone, she retreats to an isolated beach
where she packs away the last remnants of her parents'
lives. There, the pieces of a past she never knew unfold
reveal a tender story of lasting devotion, the kind of
steadfast commitment that Elizabeth admits is missing from
her own marriage. Faced with her own disillusionment, she
makes a terrifying decision, risking everything she has
a second chance at happiness.
Enriched by soul-stirring emotion and an appreciation for
the simple joy of everyday miracles, Distant Shores is an
exquisite reminder of the most precious gifts in life:
friends and family, children and lovers, the strength to
change, and the courage to forgive--all flawlessly
by the graceful hands of Kristin Hannah.
In her remarkable New York Times bestseller, Summer
Kristin Hannah struck a chord in readers and critics alike
with her portrayal of the bittersweet reunion between an
errant mother and her unforgiving daughter. Now Hannah
again reveals the fragile ties that bind a family in
transition, as two people choose to escape the limits of
their ordinary lives and reach for the extraordinary
promise that lies on Distant Shores.
