Rave Reviews For the Novels of Nancy Thayer Custody "This novel addresses current issues like surrogate motherhood, divorce and child custody in highly readable prose..." --Romantic Times Between Husbands & Friends "Two Massachusetts families live out a decade of births, deaths, secrets and infidelities in this moving 12th novel from Thayer....Readers...will appreciate [Thayer's] detailed, realistic records of motherhood, child-rearing and domestic routine in Sussex and Nantucket." --Publisher's Weekly "Nancy Thayer explores the complicated terrain of family relationships with perception, and the labyrinth of the human heart with compassion. Between Husbands & Friends is compelling testimony to the power of women's friendships and is brimful of passion and hope."--Anne D. LeClaire, author of Grace Point "A clear-eyed look at a friendship between two couples...Thayer [has] insights into the tangled webs woven by friendship."--Kirkus Reviews "To make things really interesting, Thayer squeezes as much tension, drama, and tragedy as she can into the novel."--Booklist An Act of Love "I just couldn't put it down . . . I couldn't guess who was telling the truth." --Good Housekeeping "Anyone who wants to get inside the skin of a contemporary woman simply has to open Nancy Thayer and start reading."--Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey "Thayer [creates] a moving chronicle of one family's pain."-Publishers Weekly "A brilliant novel ...The four main characters and the support cast come across as genuine, real people struggling to deal with the cataclysm that has left them all raw and in near ruin. In the hands of a magician like Nancy Thayer, the story line is less soap and more genuine, turning this into a classic reading experience that should not be missed by fans of relationship novels."--Harriet Klausner, Painted Rock Reviews
