About the Author
Elin Hilderbrand is six minutes older than her twin brother, Eric. She spent time on Martha's Vineyard (summer 1989) before she ever discovered Nantucket (summer 1993), the island she has called home for twenty-four years. Hilderbrand is the mother of three busy teenagers (pause and consider what a miracle it is that this novel even exists). The Identicals is her nineteenth novel.
Praise for THE IDENTICALS:
"A sun-drenched treat."
"Another Hilderbrand beach hit."
, USA Today, 10 Hot Books You Won't Want to Miss This Summer
"A fun, delightful, un-put-downable novel by the undisputed queen of the beach read."
"Reading the latest Hilderbrand novel is as big a part of my summer vacation as a late afternoon glass of wine... she does a lovely job of describing life on the island of Nantucket."
, The Detroit Free Press
, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch
is her best one yet. From the very start, her descriptions of life on both islands are rich and full of detail. She writes cleverly and leaves no stone unturned, thinking everything through so methodically, and her imagination is endless."
, Book Reporter
"The writer's seemingly boundless inventiveness has also extended to her fresh characters and plotting in each new book...The Identicals
will delight longtime readers of the novelist as it brings new fans into the tent."
, CT News
"They call Nantucket native Elin Hilderbrand queen of the summer novel for a reason; the islands themselves have so much personality in these pages that it feels like very realistic escapist fiction."
—Modern Mrs. Darcy
"Engaging family relationships mixed with vivid landscape descriptions create an effortless read."
"I was captivated. I
finished it in a day...I longed to stay forever in fake-real Nantucket with
Tabitha and Harper and Eleanor and Ainsley."
, New York Times Magazine
"Hilderbrand is the queen of the smart beach read, and
her latest is no exception."
