Description

THE FORTUNE'S ROCKS QUARTET collects four of Anita Shreve's most beloved novels-Fortune's Rocks, The Pilot's Wife, Sea Glass, and Body Surfing-for the first time. The novels highlight Shreve's ability to illuminate women's lives across different eras and share a delightful detail: they are all set in the same coastal New England home, one that has inspired Shreve for over a decade. Any house with age to it can tell a million stories about the families who have lived there, and Shreve has been quoted as saying, ''You could base an entire life's work on the people who come in and out of a house.''



Fortune's Rocks depicts a spirited young woman at the turn of the 20th century who falls into a passionate, illicit affair with an older man. In Sea Glass, a young couple's new marriage is rocked to the core by the 1929 stock market crash. The Pilot's Wife brings us to the present day, where Kathryn is unprepared her for the late-night knock that lets her know her husband has been killed in a plane crash. Sydney, the heroine of Body Surfing has already been once divorced and once widowed by the age of 29, and finds the fragile existence she has rebuilt for herself threatened when two brothers vie for her affections.

"There's something addictive about Shreve's tales," according to USA TODAY, and this quality is on full display in the critically acclaimed novels of THE FORTUNE'S ROCKS QUARTET. No one writes more compellingly than Anita Shreve about marriage, family, the depths of our strength and resolve, and the supreme courage that it takes to love.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant historical fiction

Anita shreve captures your intellect, historical curiousity and emotion in the first page of each of these novels. The characters are developed brilliantly and you find yourself missing them when the novel ends. If you like the ocean, the location of the house in each book adds to your enjoyment of the story. Well told stories you won't forget.
