A National Bestselling Author

In a lovingly realized Vermont setting, Before We Sleep is a sweeping, intergenerational story about family, family secrets, and the love that holds families together. It is also about the Greatest Generation as it moves into the very different era of the 1960s, and the trauma of war that so profoundly weighed on both generations.
