For as long as she can remember, they were Cam and Lilly—happily married, totally in love with each other, parents of a beautiful family, and partners in life. Then, after decades of marriage, it ended as every great love story does … in loss. After Cam’s death, Lilly takes a lone road trip to her and Cam’s favorite spot on the remote coast of Maine, the place where they fell in love over and over again, where their ghosts still dance. There, she looks hard to her past—to a first love that ended in tragedy; to falling in love with Cam; to a marriage filled with exuberance, sheer life, and safety—to try to figure out her future.

It is a journey begun with tender memories and culminating in a revelation that will make Lilly reevaluate everything she thought was true about her husband and her marriage.

Quotes & Awards

  • “I've always enjoyed Anne Rivers Siddons’ books, but this is her best, maybe the book she was born to write…The story of Lilly and Jon is one of the best stories of adolescent love—its fierceness and sweetness—that I've ever read.” 

    Stephen King

  • “In her beautifully crafted and dazzling new novel Off Season, Ms. Siddons delivers the goods more powerfully than ever. All her books are terriffic, but this one is the best yet.” 

    Pat Conroy

  • “In Siddons’ stirring novel, the recently widowed Lily Constable returns to her childhood summer home in Maine to sift through formative memories of her parents and her first love…This is an example of how a good novel can become magnificent when it is beautifully told.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Laura | 2/19/2014

    " Anne Rivers Siddons is a favorite of mine. I've read almost all of her books. They may not fall under the category of "literary" or "challenging," but they are always a pleasure to read. This one is no different. Unlike most of her novels, which take place in the South, this one takes place in Maine, as a widow struggles to come to terms with her husband's recent death - and her own past in the process. The book is well-paced, with a few surprises thrown in. Another great travel or beach read that will give you a few hours of escape. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Linda Stymiest | 2/18/2014

    " southern writer. But most of this book took place in Maine and I am very familiar with all the places she wrote about. Started out great. Bit boring in the middle but, I did enjoy the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sandra | 2/16/2014

    " I enjoyed the characters in this book and the story was interesting until towards the end. I wasn't anxious to read the last 10-12 pages. You could imagine the scenery in both DC and in Maine - the descriptions were excellent, but sometimes too long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Lynne | 2/7/2014

    " This is a great book, my first, by this author. The story set in Maine is full of 3 dimensional characters and surprises. "
