9781585471508: The Observatory (Premier Series)

In the romantic tradition of The Bridges of Madison County and The Notebook. Though the Mallory women are twins, nobody has ever had trouble telling them apart. Harper is a famous and wild painter who lives in the wealthy enclave of Stone Point, New York, while Liz lives a vastly different existence as a librarian in their upstate hometown of Longwood Falls. Over time the sisters have drifted apart, settling for their separate lives, for better or worse. But a family tragedy - the accidental death of Harper's young daughter - forces them to confront each other for the first time in years. Liz's decision to reach out to her sister eventually finds her taking care of Harper's troubled son, Nick - the nephew Liz has never met - and leaving her own life behind in order to move into the estate in Stone Point. What appears to be a simple, temporary task turns into something much more complicated and confusing when Liz finds herself falling in love with David Fields, a handsome amateur astronomer with a difficult secret in his past.

About the Author:

Emily Grayson is the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Gazebo.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Its back to Longwood Falls for the author of The Gazebo (1999), though Grayson focuses on a new cast of characters in her upstate New York town. And first, local librarian Liz Mallory must travel to the ritzy Long Island community of Stone Point, home of her twin sister, Harper. Liz has never been close to her twin, a wealthy, world-famous artist, but when Harpers eight-year-old daughter is killed in a sledding accident, she comes for the funeral and stays to minister to seven-year-old Nick, whos being ignored by his grief-stricken mother. Then Liz meets gentle, wounded David Fields (renter of an estate with the eponymous observatory), and it seems love will overcome her lifelong feeling of being overshadowed by glamorous Harper. Inevitably, complications ensuethanks to Lizs terminal lack of self-esteembut readers may not care much, given the narratives low energy level and utter predictability. Agreeable, but nothing more. -- Copyright ©2000, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
