From New York Times bestselling author Joyce Maynard comes three poignant and unforgettable novels.
Labor Day—The story of a mother and son forever changed during a long summer weekend when a mysterious man comes into their lives. Labor Day is a beautiful, poignant tale of love, sex, adolescence, and devastating treachery as seen through the eyes of a young teenager—and the man he later becomes.
The Good Daughters—A spellbinding novel about friendship, family secrets, and the strange, unexpected twists of fate that shape our lives. The story of two women born the same day in the same hospital, but raised in vastly different emotional environments, The Good Daughters is another high note in Maynard's already distinguished writing career.
After Her—Loosely inspired by the Trailside Killer case, After Her is part thriller, part love story—a suspenseful and painfully real family saga that traces a young girl's first sexual explorations, the loss of innocence, the bond shared by sisters, and the tender but damaged relationship between a girl and her father that endures even beyond the grave.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
LABOR DAY, book and movie are smart, unique, touching and deep. It is a very quiet thriller that requires rereading and rewatching. It is so nuanced that new aspects of the story are noticed every time you return to it.
