Anna Quindlen

Alternate Side : a novel

Summary: 
New York Times bestselling author Anna Quindlen has come up with another fabulous novel - this one about a young couple, Nora and Charlie Nolan, living on the upper west side of Manhattan. The well-to-do block they live on is like a very small insular village unto itself, where everyone knows and cares for one another. Then one terrible morning an incident occurs which threatens the very foundation of the small neighborhood, as well as all their relationships, including the Nolans' marriage. Written with many insightful observations about class, race, family and work; this novel is a very enjoyable and eye-opening read. Anna Quindlen at her best.
