NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • From the author of Dear Edward comes a “powerfully affecting” (People) family story that asks: Can love make a broken person whole?

“Another tender tearjerker . . . Napolitano chronicles life’s highs and lows with aching precision.”—The Washington Post

William Waters grew up in a house silenced by tragedy, where his parents could hardly bear to look at him, much less love him—so when he meets the spirited and ambitious Julia Padavano in his freshman year of college, it’s as if the world has lit up around him. With Julia comes her family, as she and her three sisters are inseparable: Sylvie, the family’s dreamer, is happiest with her nose in a book; Cecelia is a free-spirited artist; and Emeline patiently takes care of them all. With the Padavanos, William experiences a newfound contentment; every moment in their house is filled with loving chaos.

But then darkness from William’s past surfaces, jeopardizing not only Julia’s carefully orchestrated plans for their future, but the sisters’ unshakeable devotion to one another. The result is a catastrophic family rift that changes their lives for generations. Will the loyalty that once rooted them be strong enough to draw them back together when it matters most?

An exquisite homage to Louisa May Alcott’s timeless classic, Little Women, Hello Beautiful is a profoundly moving portrait of what is possible when we choose to love someone not in spite of who they are, but because of it.

If you like long, depressing books filled with terrible, selfish characters with no redeeming qualities, this is the prefect story for you!

The book was a bit drawn out. Interesting characters. Thought it was ok.

Fantastic read. It took me awhile to get into the storyline, but once I did I couldn’t put it down.

I kept listening, but wanting it over with almost the whole time. . People reading must have had a better experience. So many loved it so I kept going. Moderator added to the boredom.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. The author sure has a very creative mind to come up with these situations that are highly unlikely, but definitely possible. Character development was good. You really knew the people and you were highly invested in the family and I enjoyed the experience.

Wonderful book. Loved the bonds between the sisters. When I dislike narration, I always assume the author had some directorial authority and likes the narration. But I found Maura Tierney extremely flat. (I feel the same about her acting.) If the story had been any less exceptional, I wouldn’t have made it to the end.

Family is the foundation of our lives. With family everything is possible. Forgiveness, kindness and love frees the soul to enjoy the the wonders of life. If you have ever had a bit of trouble with family then you need this book.
