The Husband Hour by Jamie Brenner – coming April 24, 2018 (Little, Brown)
When a young widow’s reclusive life in a charming beach town is interrupted by a surprise visitor, she is forced to reckon with dark secrets about her family, her late husband, and the past she tried to leave behind.
Lauren Adelman and her high school sweetheart Rory Kincaid are a golden couple. They marry just out of college when Rory, a star hockey player, earns a spot in the NHL. Their future could not look brighter until Rory shocks everyone — Lauren most of all — by enlisting in the U.S. Army. When Rory dies in combat, Lauren is left devastated, alone, and under unbearable public scrutiny.
Seeking peace and solitude, Lauren retreats to her family’s old beach house on the Jersey Shore. But this summer she’s forced to share the house with her overbearing mother and competitive sister. Worse, a stranger making a documentary about Rory tracks her down and convinces her to give him just an hour of her time.
One hour talking to filmmaker Matt Brio eventually turns into late-night phone calls, off-screen confessions, and fireworks on the beach. As the days grow shorter and her grief changes shape, Lauren begins to understand the past – and to welcome the future.
