Synopsis

“Joyce Maynard is in top-notch form with Labor Day. Simply a novel you cannot miss.”

—Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper and Keeping Faith

“Maynard has created an ensemble of characters that will sneak into your heart, and warm it while it breaks.”

St. Petersburg Times

Joyce Maynard, acclaimed author of At Home in the World, is back with Labor Day. The  unforgettable 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 sexy, page turning, poignant story” (Jane Hamilton, author of A Map of the World) that “affirms Maynard’s reputation as a master storyteller and shows her to be a passionate humanist with a gifted ear and heart” (People)

    example of life with a depressed mom

    Great example of what life is like living with a depressed parent. Some inconsistency in the story line but enjoyable all the same.

    Labor Day

    Interesting story, I totally connected with Adele's emotional dependency to Frank and how in just a short time one can become accustomed to having someone make you feel like you are more than you allow your self to be because of some thing that sets you back. You have to get past that there are no quotations in the speaking part but all in all, a good read. I will go see the movie, :-)

    Very good read.

    Touching coming of age story, with a beautiful adult love story entwined within. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good read.

    Great Read

    Not normally my preferred genre, but I thoroughly enjoyed this story. A very well written novel about love, betrayal and hot summer days.
