"There's nothing like two best friends and a secret beach to get a story rolling, and that's just the beginning. Ms. Thayer captures her beloved Nantucket like no one else, celebrating the island's nature and beauty, using it as a rich backdrop for this deeply moving novel of friendship. I read it straight through, and when I was finished all I wanted to do was walk barefoot on the beach with my best friend."
"Nancy Thayer's sense of place is powerful, and her words are hung together the way my grandmother used to tat lace."
-Dorothea Benton Frank
"Best friends take center stage in this poignant testament to the enduring power of the bond between women. Moon Shell Beach is an absorbing read about the things that matter most in life. Give your best friend a copy of this big, beautiful book!"
"Nancy Thayer has a deep and masterly understanding of love and friendship, of where the two complement and where they collide. Read Moon Shell Beach and get swept away."
"A beautifully textured story about love, friendship, and forgiveness, a great beach read. It will make you want to pack your bags for Nantucket."
-Kristin Hannah "Moon Shell Beach reminds readers of what they held dear as children, and if that changed as adults. It is also brings back memories of friendships and family ties and how our choices affect both.--"Durham Herald-Sun
"Thoroughly enjoyable . . . The focus on women's friendship as opposed to romance makes for an enjoyable change of pace."--"Booklist
