Overview

When we meet journalist Cassie Keaton, it’s the off-season on Cape Cod, when life is supposed to be quiet. But as “The Best Worst Year” begins, Cassie is attempting to not-so-gracefully navigate the gauntlet of losing her job, dealing with her newly remarried ex-husband, coping with bad boyfriends and waking up to a desolately empty nest as her children venture off into the world. Out of the wreckage of her life, Cassie learns to salvage meaning from every struggle. She discovers that, sometimes, our worst moments are just a prelude to our best.

Claire Cook, bestselling author of Must Love Dogs says, "Candace Hammond has written a sparkling debut novel, filled with nuggets of humor and shards of heartbreaking honesty. THE BEST WORST YEAR is a captivating story of a single mom's struggle to find herself at midlife."

Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of The Deep End of the Ocean and Second Nature says, “Candace Hammond's debut novel is smart, heartfelt, and if I may say, stylish! Cassie is, for many of us, a mirror.”

And producer and writer for “The Office” and author of How I Became A Famous Novelist Steven Hely says, "Candace Hammond pulls us into a vivid story of Cassie Keaton, a woman battling to keep her grace and good humor while life insists on straining her sanity."
