Hello Beautiful (Oprah’s Book Club): A Novel by Ann Napolitano

“Another tender tearjerker . . . Napolitano chronicles life’s highs and lows with aching precision.”—The Washington Post.

In “Hello Beautiful,” we are introduced to William Waters, a young man whose childhood home is shrouded in the silence of tragedy. His parents, burdened by their own pain, struggle to connect with him, leaving him starved for affection. However, everything changes when he crosses paths with Julia Padavano during his first year of college—an encounter that sets his world ablaze. Julia brings with her a vibrant and ambitious spirit, along with her inseparable family: Sylvie, the dreamer lost in books; Cecelia, the free-spirited artist; and Emeline, the nurturing caretaker of them all. Within the Padavano household, William finds a newfound sense of contentment, as love and chaos intertwine in every moment.

Yet, the shadows of William’s past emerge, threatening not only Julia’s carefully crafted plans for their future but also the unbreakable bond shared by the sisters. A cataclysmic family rift ensues, altering the course of their lives for generations to come. Will the loyalty that once anchored them prove resilient enough to reunite them when it matters most?

In this exquisite homage to Louisa May Alcott’s timeless classic, “Little Women,” “Hello Beautiful” paints a profoundly moving portrait of love’s boundless potential. It explores the transformative power of embracing someone not in spite of their true self, but precisely because of it. Through a tapestry of emotions, this captivating tale showcases the resilience of love, the strength of loyalty, and the indomitable spirit that can reunite hearts even in the face of adversity.

“Radiant and brilliantly crafted . . . Napolitano’s [work] resists the easy satisfactions of the sentimental and never settles for simple answers to emotional predicaments faced by her characters.”—The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice)

“This sumptuous family saga is one of those rare novels whose singular characters are so beautifully rendered, it’s as if they’re your best friends, and you’re grateful to be in their orbit.”—Oprah Quarterly

“Hello Beautiful will make you weep buckets because you come to care so deeply about the characters and their fates. . . . [Napolitano] compels us to contemplate the complex tapestry of family love that can, despite grief and loss, still knit us together. She helps us see ourselves—and each other—whole.”—The Washington Post
