NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * In a small town on the verge of big change, a young woman unearths deep secrets about her family and unexpected truths about herself. Filled with insights that are the hallmark of Anna Quindlen's bestsellers, Miller's Valley is an emotionally powerful story about a family you will never forget.   For generations the Millers have lived in Miller's Valley. Mimi Miller tells about her life with intimacy and honesty. As Mimi eavesdrops on her parents and quietly observes the people around her, she discovers more and more about the toxicity of family secrets, the dangers of gossip, the flaws of marriage, the inequalities of friendship and the risks of passion, loyalty, and love. Home, as Mimi begins to realize, can be "a place where it's just as easy to feel lost as it is to feel content."   Miller's Valley is a masterly study of family, memory, loss, and, ultimately, discovery, of finding true identity and a new vision of home. As Mimi says, "No one ever leaves the town where they grew up, even if they go." Miller's Valley reminds us that the place where you grew up can disappear, and the people in it too, but all will live on in your heart forever.   Praise for the bestselling fiction of Anna Quindlen   "Anna Quindlen knows that all the things we will ever be can be found in some forgotten fragment of family." -- The Washington Post , about Object Lessons "There comes a moment in every novelist's career when she . . . ventures into new territory, breaking free into a marriage of tone and style, of plot and characterization, that's utterly her own. Anna Quindlen's marvelous romantic comedy of manners is just such a book. . . . Quindlen has delivered a novel that will have staying power all its own." -- The New York Times Book Review , about Still Life with Bread Crumbs   "Anna Quindlen writes about family with all the humanity, wit, and pain of going home." --Wendy Wasserstein , about One True Thing   "Anna Quindlen is America's resident Sane Person. She has what Joyce called the common touch, the ability to speak to many people about what's on their minds before they have the vaguest idea what's on their minds." -- The New York Times , about Blessings   "Quindlen knows words, and she knows women." -- More , about Rise and Shine   "Quindlen's writing . . . wraps the reader in the warmth and familiarity of domestic life." -- The Seattle Times , about Every Last One
