Once you hop off the ferry to join them, you’ll never want to leave. This was the most enjoyable book I’ve read in a long time.”

Make this your summer read and discover the joys of a delicious Frick Island cake, the sanctuary of a tight-knit community, and the hope of second chances.”

—Amy E. Reichert

“The Invisible Husband of Frick Island is a fricking delight! An awkward newcomer travels to a tiny, remote community whose residents cling as tightly to their way of life as they do to their secrets, even as climate change threatens to sweep the whole charming island out to sea. Part mystery, part romance, and full to the brim with heart and hope, Colleen Oakley’s latest is the perfect summer read.”

You Were There Too

“You Were There Too is a surprising and incredibly satisfying story of chance and fate. From the book’s enticing first pages to its startling and electrifying conclusion, Colleen Oakley knocks it out of the park.”

—New York Times bestselling author Taylor Jenkins Reid

“A beautifully woven story of love, grief, and the power we do and don’t have to choose our fate, You Were There Too brought me to tears. I read it in one long gulp and didn’t want it to end.”

“Hypnotically beautiful, You Were There Too delves into the chasm between the life we have and the life we imagine for ourselves. Unique, lyrical, and thoughtful.”

—New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins

“A rare gem of a novel. Colleen Oakley checks all the boxes with this one: exquisite, careful writing; beautifully drawn three-dimensional characters; and a twisty plot that defies premonition. This is a book about connections and discovering that why we are connected to each other is a lot less important than the fact that we are. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next while at the same time hated for this lovely book to end. This is the kind of book we all long for, one to read and savor, and then read again.”

—New York Times bestselling author Karen White

“I have been a fan of Oakley since her debut novel, but with this book, she has risen to a new level. You Were There Too took me through the gamut of emotions—confusion, anticipation, grief, hope. Oakley’s writing is taut, fresh, and doesn’t waste a single word. I devoured this novel in three sittings, but I will be thinking about it for much, much longer. A slam-dunk bestseller for sure.”

—Sally Hepworth

“A heartbreaking and thought-provoking exploration of fate, love, and choice sure to bring on a few tears.”

—Kirkus Reviews

“There is a splendid blend of humor throughout Oakley’s alternately romantic, idiosyncratic, and foreboding love-conquers-all tale that easily engages new readers and will please the author’s fans.”

—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Fans of relationship fiction that explores women’s inner lives and choices by Jennifer Weiner or Amy Hatvany will be unable to put this book down.”

“It is easy to get lost in this vividly told story with characters and a fictional malady that are utterly believable. Oakley’s second novel should build on the author’s popularity and continue comparisons to popular authors such as Jojo Moyes.”

—Library Journal

“The story of three wounded souls denied the human touch they desire, expertly conceived with all the warmth and affection of an enormous bear hug. A real achievement.”

—National bestselling author Steven Rowley

“It’s so rare these days to find an utterly original heroine like Jubilee—one who is bravely living an almost unimaginable life. Gripping, raw, and moving, this is one of my favorite novels of the year.”
