Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Elizabeth and Jackson Shore married young, raised two daughters, and weathered the storms of youth as they built a family. From a distance, their lives look picture perfect. But after the girls leave home, Jack and Elizabeth quietly drift apart. When Jack accepts a wonderful new job, Elizabeth puts her own needs aside to follow him across the country. Then tragedy turns Elizabeth’s world upside down. In the aftermath, she questions everything about her life—her choices, her marriage, even her long-forgotten dreams. In a daring move that shocks her husband, friends, and daughters, she lets go of the woman she has become—and reaches out for the woman she wants to be.

Distant Shores

I loved this book, it took me in first thing. The author made you feel for this couple. Laughed, cried made me feel good. Anyone over the age of 50 will enjoy this book.

Distant Shores

I could not believe this was written by the same author as “The Nightingale.” The woe-is-me wife and mother with emotionally fragile daughters whines throughout about her dreams. Every one of her experiences has meaning about her life. She separates from her cheating husband and finds herself, and later they realize their love is too strong to survive without each other. Trite and boring.

Annoying

Since I Read the Nightingale, I thought I would read another book by this author. This was a mistake. I picked up distant shores and it was nothing but a whining
,pitiful, “searching for my life‘s purpose “book. It was so verbose I felt like she was just filling pages with descriptions of what the beach etc. looked like. I do not recommend.
