Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the end of summer approaches and a long, hot Labor Day weekend looms, the life of lonely thirteen-year-old Henry Wheeler is irrevocably changed when he and his emotionally fragile mother show kindness to a stranger with a terrible secret. Now a major motion picture starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, Labor Day is a poignant story of love, sex, adolescence, and devastating treachery.

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 Sisters 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 Maynards reputation as a master storyteller and shows her to be a passionate humanist with a gifted ear and heart” (People)
