Review: Dune Road

There are a few women lit authors I always read, if only because everyone else is reading them. Jane Green falls into this category, for me.

Synopsis: The novel is set in the beach community of a tony Connecticut town. Our heroine is a single mom who works for a famous–and famously reclusive–novelist.

Type: Fiction

Quick Take: This is the story of Kit Hargrove, a recently divorced woman who is trying to find a new life. The story takes place in New England and having recently read The Beach House, I half expected it to include some character cross over.
