Club Book Episode 40 Jacquelyn Mitchard
Book club favorite Jacquelyn Mitchard is the author of ten acclaimed novels to date. Her 1996 debut, The Deep End of the Ocean, propelled the author to superstar status after Oprah Winfrey chose it as the inaugural selection for her wildly popular book club. Hollywood adapted the story into a movie of the same name, starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Whoopi Goldberg. Mitchard’s newest book, Two If by Sea, hit shelves in March 2016. The story follows a retired police officer, grieving after the recent and sudden loss of his family, and his relationship with a young ward who exhibits apparent telepathic abilities. “Soulful and emotionally arresting… [Two If by Sea] masterfully mines the place where catastrophic loss meets near-impossible hope and healing,” praised novelist Paula McLain.
