“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.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

When pediatrician Mara O'Neill is found drugged with Valium and dead of carbon monoxide poisoning--an apparent suicide--it sets off crises in the lives of the three pediatricians who were in practice with her in a small Vermont town. For Angie Bigelow, dealing with Mara's death becomes the final straw in the disintegration of her once-well-organized--and ostensibly happy--home and marriage. Peter Grace, whose involvement with Mara was more complex than he admits publicly, must resolve a sense of discontent rooted in his youth. Paige Pfeiffer, who was Mara's friend since college, copes with her deep sense of loss by caring for the infant from India that Mara had arranged to adopt. Paige's life is further complicated by the attentions of Noah Perrine, acting head of the posh but troubled private school where Paige coaches girls' athletics. Delinsky ( More Than Friends ) does her usual good job of creating a dynamic interaction among a varied ensemble of characters, but their lives convey a subtle and complex subtext on parenting--that being a perfect parent is integral to being a perfect person--that may wilt some readers' enjoyment.

From the Back Cover

Life flows smoothly for Paige Pfeiffer, a thirty-nine-year-old pediatrician living in the idyllic small town of Tucker, Vermont. But when her best friend and medical partner, Mara O’Neill, inexplicably commits suicide, Paige’s comfortable world is shattered. Struggling to come to grips with her grief as she temporarily cares for Mara’s newly adopted baby daughter, Paige hopes that in time she will understand the reasons for Mara’s desperate act and life will go on as before. Suddenly fate steps in at Paige’s darkest moment. Noah Perrine, the acting head of the private school where Paige coaches girls’ athletics, is filling her days with unexpected hope. But before Paige can allow herself to trust in her newfound happiness and embrace the future, she must first let go of the past.

Suddenly is a deeply moving, emotionally charged classic novel that explores the consequences of choice, from New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming, but controlled Jan. 7 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In a small town with few problems and low crime, the death of a friend and fellow pediatrician stuns a practice, a town, and throws all rules out of the window. Add to this the secrets that it seems all people keep, and once things start coming to light, you aren't sure if you want to cry with them, or wish you were a character in the story to help hold everyone together.
While I enjoyed the book so much that I read it straight through, I felt that B. Delinsky portrayed the women in this book as being controlling to the point of not being able to see their own lives and the inevitable lonely paths that they were choosing in their shortsightedness, until, of course, the men around them were able to "bring them to their senses." This may be the typical theme in many romance novels, but usually it isn't so obvious in Ms. Delinsky's books, so in this way I was disappointed.
Otherwise though, it had mystery, wrongdoing, some knights in shining armor, even princesses and queens in shining armor, and some tasteful steamy romance scenes. All in all, it was a great book, it just had that one downside to it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Didn't want to put it down! June 9 2000
By Pam
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After surviving a suicide in my own family, I could really relate to the characters in this novel. B. Delinsky really hit on the feelings and emotions involved for survivors of suicide. I missed the characters when I was finished with the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Will Keep Reading March 26 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book of Delinsky's that I have read, and it won't be the last. First, I loved the fact that, besides the main story, there were two additional storylines that intertwined with the main story. The characters were well rounded. Second, when friend and co-worker Mara dies, those closest to her are forced to take a long look at their lives and what they want from them. This was one of the best books I've read in a while. I am looking forward to reading more of Delinsky's books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic July 5 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the first book by this author that I had ever read and reread. It made me go out and look up more of her other books to read. I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!! It made me realize how special my best friends are and how important it is to talk to them about all of your feelings. I just got married and read this book before I picked my bridesmaids. I think it really meant a lot to those young woman to hear why I had picked them and how very special they were to me. This book was what made me realize it. It is a book for anyone who has ever wanted to laugh and cry at the same time. It is about "REAL" people facing real situations and the feelings that we all feel. I could not put this book down and would highly recommend this book to anyone. READ IT!!!! YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!
