In the famed romantic tradition that only Barbara Delinsky can deliver, you'll meet emotion-packed characters who make you forget whatever it was you were doing before you picked up Coast Road. In this story, workaholic Jack McGill is brought to his knees when he learns that his ex-wife Rachel is in a coma after a car accident. When he rushes to her side to be a dutiful father to his children, he is met with abrasive verbal abuse not only from his children, but also from Rachel's best friends.

By the time the doctors tell him they don't know how long Rachel will be in the coma, Jack has reacquainted himself with his children, and fond memories have surfaced of his ex-wife and her creative artistic talent. Through Rachel's best friend, Katherine, Jack learns about a secret Rachel had hidden from him during the days they were married. The secret, revealed through artwork, is one of the many factors that thrust Jack into "introspection mode." He reevaluates his life, digging deep into his heart's desires, and decides to quit his job and stay at Rachel's side, even if she never wakes up.

Coast Road deals with some very difficult subjects, such as miscarriage, divorce, traveling husbands, breast cancer, and the ramifications of living in a coma. However, once you get past the research exposition and the bantering, you'll laugh and cry (a lot) at what this once-separated family goes through. Delinsky paints vivid pictures of Rachel, who remains in a coma for about 99 percent of the book, but you'll see that it sometimes takes a life-threatening accident to rekindle the fires of love. --Candy Paape

From Booklist

Jack McGill wakes in the middle of the night to an emergency phone call: his ex-wife Rachel's car crashed through the guardrail on a coastal road near her home in Big Sur, and she has been taken to surgery. Will Jack come? He hurries to her side more for their daughters' sake than for Rachel, still not understanding why she left him six years ago. But Samantha and Hope need him, and he's still their father. When Jack arrives at the hospital, he's met by Katherine, Rachel's best friend, who updates him on her condition: Rachel is in a coma. All they can do is wait. As Jack prepares to step back into family life, he promises the sleeping Rachel that he will care for their daughters. As the slow days pass, Jack has to deal with withdrawn Hope, belligerent Samantha, and protective Katherine, who keeps asking him: Why is he here? What does he hope to gain? Will he hurt Rachel, again? Jack spends his time sitting next to Rachel reminiscing about their marriage, learning about the new Rachel from her friends, and realizing that he wants to be part of the family again. He wonders, Will Rachel regain consciousness? Does she still love him? Delinsky delivers an emotion-packed journey of truth and redemption, firmly cementing her status as a best-selling writer of top-notch books. Although the end of the story is never in doubt, the sheer impact of the whole makes this a winner, sure to appeal to readers of Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown, and Jayne Ann Krentz. Melanie Duncan

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Book 26. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is not the first book I have read by this author but I liked it much better than the first. . .the first Faces of Grace was a good book, but remeinded me of my parents who both had alzheimers. .this book was more of a challenge to me as I know very little about people in comas. The story kept my attention and made me want to turn the pages to make things happen faster. this was a very good read, and I would suggest it to anyone. . Another great book somewhat different is Stolen Moments by Barbara Jeanne Fisher . . .this too is a book you will want to read at least once, or maybe more . . .Both books touch your heart in a big way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captivating writing 16. Juni 2000
I was fascinated by the way the author, Barbara Delinsky, captivated me. She managed to write the feelings of Jack McGill in a way I thought only another man could understand. She took layer after layer of the outer self from each identity in the book, revealing the inner being in each. This was even true of Rachael, who was in a coma for 90% of the narrative, to Rachael's friends, and to Jack. It was interesting, and fun, getting to know the individuals, molding my impression of each.
It took some real talented writing to make me like Jack from the get-go, while leaving Rachael to be respected first, and liked only after more than half of the book was gone.
This was the first book of Barbara Delinsky's that I read... and her writing style has captured me, making me look for other books by her. I almost immediately found "Lake News" and found it to be just as "readable and enjoyable."
It is always a pleasure to find new authors to search for and enjoy. I believe I will read many more "Delinsky's!"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Where the road takes you... 8. Juni 2000
Von rjfields
Coast Road is one of Barbara Delinsky's best, although it took me some time to realize it. I read the back cover many times before I decided to read it, based solely on the fact one of the two main characters was in a coma for much of the story. I was never a fan of flashbacks, but Coast Road is a unique book.
Divorced for 6 years, Rachel Keats and Jack McGill followed different paths that ultimately would lead them to the same a roller coaster ride of emotions that were solely Jack's. In the middle of the night, Jack is awakened by a phone call informing him that the mother of his two daughters is in a coma following a car accident. He rushes to be with his daughters, but as they struggle with the idea of life without Rachel, Jack realizes he still loves his former wife. The format of the story is filled with vivid memories--(I don't want to call them flashbacks)--and present day pains: the understanding that love is a fleeting thing that you must catch it while you can.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sensitively told story 1. Juni 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This was a sensitive story involving a mother of two adolescent girls struck down in a car accident in the prime of her life. The location is Big Sur, and the event involves the reactions of her children, ex-husband, friends and colleagues as they cope with the ramifications of the catastrophe. A well done story dealing with difficult issues. Highly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Finding your way back to what's really important... 4. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
An ex-husband is forced to become primary care-giver to his 2 daughters while his ex-wife lies in a coma. In the process he discovers his life isn't what he wants and finds what he wants.
I enjoyed the book written from the guy's perspective. All the friends of the ex-wife were interesting and I wished I could have learned more about them. This is the 2nd Delinsky book I've read and they were both enjoyable reads.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another great one! 25. Juli 2000
This is the 2nd book that I've read written by Ms. Delinsky, and once again I loved her writing! The first book was Three Wishes, and that too was a great story. I love how her writing manages to whisk me away from the world I know and take me to another place with a great story line, plot, and happy ending. Wanna feel good when you finish a book? Try this one...check it out. Ahhhh, which of her books should I read next!

Great book.I enjoyed this one more than most. Jack was the epitome of the romantic man finding his softer side and getting in touch with his children and his woman. I would recommend this one for sure.
