Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride's late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter's future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event--but in reality, things are far from perfect.

While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their own lives crumbling. In the days leading up to the wedding, love will be questioned, scandals will arise, and hearts will be broken and healed. Elin Hilderbrand takes readers on a touching journey in BEAUTIFUL DAY--into the heart of marriage, what it means to be faithful, and how we choose to honor our commitments.

  • PRAISE FOR SILVER GIRL:

    "Hilderbrand's absorbing latest...Much of the novel is told in flashback as Connie and Meredith work through their crises, but Hilderbrand's talents keep those memories as resonant as the present day. Long-time fans and newcomers alike will delight in this timely, touching story of loss, love, friendship, and forgiveness." (Publishers Weekly).

  • "Another winner from Hilderbrand, who in this sensitive and suspenseful tale succeeds in portraying a seemingly unlikable character, besieged Meredith, and making her human." (Patty Engelmann, Booklist).

  • "Beach reading par excellence; Hilderbrand is always popular." (Library Journal).

  • "Smart." (Self).

  • "Engrossing...As in all of Hilderbrand's novels, the island works magic...Silver Girl's great fun." (Lisa Kay Greissinger, People).

  • "As could be expected from the best-selling Hilderbrand, it's a juicy set-up, allowed to unfold naturally...Hilderbrand throws in a handful of plot twists that bounce the story along like a funky old jeep...Silver Girl is the kind of safe investment beachgoers should adore." (Clea Simon, The Boston Globe).



  • "This intelligently written novel succeeds in making Meredith sympathetic." (Stefanie Cohen, New York Post).
