Details: Product Description REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK“A magnificent page-turner. . . as intoxicating as a summer night by the sea.” —Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, New York Times bestselling author of Good Company "It's been ages since I was so absorbed in a contemporary novel. I loved it." —Nick Hornby, New York Times bestselling author of Just Like You "A soulful debut that plumbs the depths of a midlife Sophie’s Choice." —People A story of summer, secrets, love, and lies: in the course of a singular day on Cape Cod, one woman must make a life-changing decision that has been brewing for decades.“This house, this place, knows all my secrets.” It is a perfect July morning, and Elle, a fifty-year-old happily married mother of three, awakens at “The Paper Palace”—the family summer place which she has visited every summer of her life. But this morning is different: last night Elle and her oldest friend Jonas crept out the back door into the darkness and had sex with each other for the first time, all while their spouses chatted away inside. Now, over the next twenty-four hours, Elle will have to decide between the life she has made with her genuinely beloved husband, Peter, and the life she always imagined she would have had with her childhood love, Jonas, if a tragic event hadn’t forever changed the course of their lives. As Heller colors in the experiences that have led Elle to this day, we arrive at her ultimate decision with all its complexity. Tender yet devastating, The Paper Palace considers the tensions between desire and dignity, the legacies of abuse, and the crimes and misdemeanors of families.

Or stay with her cherished husband, a dashing Brit who’s the father of her kids?" – People “Doubly blessed when it comes to descriptive powers, Heller is as good on nature as she is on interiors.” —The New York Times "An assured debut.
