The Wedding Tree - Available Now!

December 1, 2015; Berkley Trade Paperback; $16.00; ISBN: 9780425282359
From national bestselling author Robin Wells, winner of the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Awardtwo National Readers’ Choice Awards, and the Holt Medallion, among others, comes an atmospheric, multigenerational novel of wartime romance, loss, and renewal.  Stretching from modern-day Louisiana to World War II era New Orleans, the novel traverses the lives and loves of three generations of Stevens women, including young divorcĂ© Hope and her grandmother, Adelaide. 

Adelaide and Hope’s intertwining histories speak to how societal and familial expectations influence women’s decisions—and how the fluidity of those expectations have affected the trials, lives, and loves of different generations within one family. Readers will empathize with the down-on-her-luck divorcĂ© Hope, and perhaps, as I did, find themselves newly intrigued by the potential for unknown romance and adventure buried in family history. All these themes are packaged in a novel that will grab you, pull you in, and make every woman wish for a fighter pilot—or perhaps just a handsome widow next door—to sweep her off her feet. 

Wells again delivers the “sympathetic, memorable characters . . . touching story, gentle humor, and evocative writing” (Library Journal) she is known for.
