“Maryann Ridini Spencer lends her talented pen to a sweeping tale that is sure to involve the heart,” said Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times best-selling author.
"'Lady in the Window' is an inspiring and inspirational story; a perfect remedy for the stresses we all experience, and as soothing as an ocean sunset. Maryann Ridini Spencer writes beautifully with great insight into the human heart. This is a story that will stay with you for a long time,” said Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times best-selling author.
In "Lady in the Window," after a series of concurrent events turn Kate’s life upside down, her friend, top TV talk show host and philanthropist, Olivia Larkin, comes to Kate’s rescue; offering Kate respite as her guest in a seaside garden cottage rental in the ancient, magical paradise that is Hanalei, Kauai. As Kate welcomes the “aloha spirit” and the beauty of Hawaii into her healing process, the angelic and otherworldly occurrences that being to transpire during her respite are too poignant for Kate to ignore. Lady in the Window leads Kate towards her path of destiny: discovering true love, purpose, and the infinite bond between mother and daughter.
“I knew that I wanted to write about family and healing,” said Spencer. “It was during a visit to Kauai in 2014 that I decided to place my novel in Kauai because of the affinity I had for Hawaii and its people. Then after my dear mother passed...the story of Lady in the Window just unfolded for me.”
