Product Description

Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinskycaptivates with a magnificent story of loving friendship and desperate acts, first published in 1992.

The lovely vacation house on the Maine coast was meantto be a glorious retreat for Danica Lindsay and her husband Blake, a place where they could mend the wounds of a damaged and tired marriage. Instead, she finds herself mostly there alone while Blake's political star is rapidly rising back in Boston. Were it not for the cherished companionship of her new neighbor, gentle and caring Michael Buchanan, Danica would surely be overcome by loneliness and despair.

But a friendship that is strong, uplifting, and real is slowlytransforming into something less innocent, more passionate -- something that could easily be called "love." For the first time in her life, a chance for true happiness may be in Danica's reach. But how can she grab onto it when she remains another man's wife, bound by her marriage vows to a union plagued by doubt and pain ... and by secrets so shocking an entire nation will take notice?

HASH(0x9e058738) out of 5 stars One of her best! Jan. 24 2002
By SoCalGlo - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I am a Delinsky fan, having read 17 of her books thus far. I read at bedtime, and hated when my eyes forced me to sleep. Still I read it in 3 nights and it was good all the way through. The main character, Danica, is a lonely, wealthy woman. The daughter of a senator and wife of a self-absorbed businessman. She buys a house in Kennebunkport, Maine, in the hopes of having some time alone with her husband and improving their marriage... but he apparently isn't interested in the personal side of their marriage, and rarely goes there. She meets a neighbor on the beach, a male author, and the story takes you through the cultivation of their friendship and how it affects both their lives. The story and characters are believable, and make you feel like you personally know them - The book has a little bit of everything... it isn't just a love story, it's about personal growth, loyalty, a little politics - how it probably really is for wives and family of politicians, the big-business world and more - it keeps you turning those pages. If you like to read about women growing strong and fighting for what really matters in life, you'll enjoy this.

HASH(0x9dfa9f48) out of 5 stars Struggles and Triumphs Oct. 29 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my favorite Delinsky book. I enjoyed Michael's struggle to be included in Danica's life yet not to be the cause of the breakdown of her marriage. Danica is conflicted and tormented by a desire to do the right thing. They grabbed me from their first meeting and I was rooting for them until the end of the book. Passionate and engrossing - an excellent story.

"Within Reach" is the first book that I have read by Barbara Delinsky and it won't be my last. It has passion and mystery and keeps you thinking about the characters long after you have turned the last page.

I thought that "Within Reach" was one of the best books that I have ever read. The ending was totally unpredictable and I enjoyed reading every last page. The romance between Michael and Danica is very exciting to read about.

HASH(0x9df9e27c) out of 5 stars Great story Feb. 2 2001
By Barbara - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Delinski is the best romance author. While reading this book, you actually feel the drive up the coast to the beach, you can actually feel the mist of the ocean while sitting on the rocks behind the cottage on the beach. Here's a story of a marriage that, again the husband is just too busy to take time with his wife and enjot the simple things. Wonderful story and a very unpredictable ending that made the book even better.
