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. Author tour.

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.

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...

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!!!!

I was rushing through the airport in Chicago and needed a good book to read. I picked this book up and was hooked on Barbara Delinsky from that day on. It is a wonderful story with many subplots and so much to say about friendships which mean so much to all of us. Sometimes our friends are dealing with problems that we do not even know they have. This story also had of course the wonderful ending. I love all of Barbara's work but you will never regret spending time reading this one, it is a real keeper. Enjoy!!

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.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It made me think of how precious friendships are and to never take them for granted. The characters are all so down to earth. The relationship of the main character and the little baby girl is so special. And when she bids final farewell to her friend I had tears in my eyes. I really enjoy a book that can evoke that much emotion.
