Goodreads: A touching new novel from Elin Hilderbrand in which a dying woman sets out to find love for those closest to her – before it’s too late
Dabney Kimball Beech, the 48-year-old fifth generation Nantucketer, has had a lifelong gift of matchmaking (52 couples still together to her credit). But when Dabney discovers she is dying of pancreatic cancer, she sets out to find matches for a few people very close to home: her husband, celebrated economist John Boxmiller Beech; her lover journalist Clendenin Hughes; and her daughter, Agnes, who is engaged to be married to the wrong man.
As time slips away from Dabney, she is determined to find matches for those she loves most – but at what cost to her own relationships? THE MATCHMAKER is the heartbreaking new novel from Elin Hilderbrand about losing and finding love, even as you’re running out of time.
Ope’s Opinion: Elin Hilderbrand did it again. She wrote a book so good you will remember the characters long after you have finished the read. This book is all about the characters and their relationships to each other.
I really liked the way HIlderbrand wove the people Dabney matched together with what was going on in the present time of Dabney’s life. It worked so well to give history in a refreshing way.
The end of the book gave you a feeling of everything being wrapped up.
I am ready for Elin Hilderbrand’s next book. She does not disappoint!
Rating: Five Chairs – This book is so good it will be passed on and on and on….
