About Jane Green

Every time Jane Green writes a book, I think it couldn't possibly be better than her last. But it always is. A tremendously talented writer, Green tackles an endless array of subjects in her thought-provoking women's novels. In her latest, Family Pictures, a riveting novel about two women whose lives intersect when a shocking secret is revealed, she covers the topics of marriage, trust, fidelity and parenthood. It's a book that sticks with you long after you've finished. It makes you think, what would I do?

About Family Pictures

Family Pictures is the story of two wives, both mothers, living on opposite coasts, who think they're leading completely separate lives until the day they find out they aren't. In fact, the common thread that binds them is something they would have never wished on their worst enemy.

Both women are in their 40s and have husbands who travel more than either of them would like. And they both have an emptiness inside of them that neither thought possible. But when their lives are torn apart, they come together through a shared secret and must look deep within themselves to find out if they have the ability to forgive — if not for themselves, then for their children.

I couldn't put this book down, reading it almost cover to cover in one day. More invested in these characters than I had been in fictional people for a long while, I had to know how their stories turned out — and what their futures held. This is my favorite of any Jane Green novel yet, and I highly recommend you read this book as soon as you can snatch up a copy on March 19.
