Meet the Writers
Jacquelyn Mitchard has made a career of pulling the heartstrings without patronizing her readers. With her debut novel The Deep End of the Ocean, the first book ever to be featured in Oprah’s Book Club, Mitchard began a career distinguished by intelligent and entertaining explorations of life’s darkest moments. The proud mom of seven (!) kids, Mitchard reflects that "families are the harbors that launched us... and the havens we have to return to always -- whether we want to or not."
