A Captivating Journey of Family and Boundless Love
Ann Napolitano's Hello Beautiful is her fourth novel; a captivating exploration of family dynamics, making it the perfect read for anyone who has ever grappled with the complexities of familial bonds. This coming-of-age story, chosen for Oprah's 100th Book Club, follows the lives of four sisters, the Padavanos, as they navigate love, loss, and the challenges of growing up.
Told from various perspectives, Napolitano masterfully weaves a rich tapestry, drawing the reader into the lives of each sister. Julia, the eldest, seeks control and meticulously plans her future, unknowingly weaving William, a troubled soul seeking solace, into her carefully constructed life. Sylvie, the middle daughter, yearns for a passionate love story straight out of a fairytale, while twins, Cecilia and Emeline, find comfort and strength in their inseparable bond.
Highly recommended as one of the most beautiful stories I've read in 2024, Hello Beautiful is a captivating character-driven story that celebrates the enduring power of family and the transformative nature of love.

An emotionally fulfilling read. I loved this book. I loved all the people in it; the Padavano sisters, Julia,Sylvie, Emeline,Cecelia, poor sweet William and Izzy and Alice. I did not love the matriarch Rose ( a strong Catholic) who throws one daughter out of the house for being pregnant and later moves to Florida and abandoned a close family I loved how the family honours their deceased father by keeping his memory alive . I loved how William’s character develops and how much I felt for him and rooted for him through all he goes through.William, who never received love; then thought he never deserved love and then how he allowed love in and in the end recognized the love he has for his daughter.
I just loved everything about this book. I’m sorry to leave this family behind.
