The World Is Decorated with Stars
In her remarkable debut novel, author Denice Kronau presents a love story for the ages. The World is Decorated with Stars tells two parallel stories of two couples, both named Abigail and Matthew, living in Massachusetts. This meticulously researched story deftly alternates between centuries and a backdrop rooted in historical events.
Matthew and his wife Abigail live in Nantucket in the 1800s. As a sea captain during the height to the decline of the whaling era, Matthew leaves for years at a time, often conflicted between staying home with his family and his love of the sea. Meanwhile Abigail heads their household, raises their children, and runs her family’s business.
The Matt and Abby of 2008 are successful heads of their own businesses in Boston and Nantucket. Unaware that they were husband and wife in a previous life, they begin a relationship as business partners. Faced with modern-day business challenges and the financial crisis, their friendship blossoms into something more.
The World Is Decorated with Stars is a stunning novel for readers who love historical fiction and the romance of finding a lost love again.
