The Book of Why: A Novel

January 2013 Hardcover

Nicholas Montemarano, The Book of Why: A Novel

978-0-316-18847-0, $24.99


A novel about an unforgettable love, THE BOOK OF WHY asks big questions:  Is there meaning in signs? Do coincidences matter? Does love ever really have to die?

The answers to these questions are within you-at least that’s what writer Eric Newborn said in his mega-bestselling books and speechesBut the loss of his wife has left Eric with a failed belief system.  In the wake of that trauma, Eric has become a recluse in his home on Martha’s Vineyard.

A fan who tracks Eric down brings him back to memories of his wife, leading him closer to her than he’d dreamed he could ever get again. With a breathtaking twist at its end, THE BOOK OF WHY is a perfect, unforgettable love story in the tradition of Nicholas Sparks and Audrey Niffenegger.
