Lunchtime with Rachel Beanland | Florence Adler Swims Forever

Lunchtime with Rachel Beanland | Florence Adler Swims Forever


In Atlantic City, Summer of 1934 begins with a shocking tragedy. Over the course of the summer, three generations of the Adler family grapple with heartbreak, romance, and the weight of family secrets in this stunning debut novel that’s perfect for fans of Manhattan Beach and The Dollhouse.

Based on a true story and told in the vein of J. Courtney Sullivan’s Saints for All Occasions and Anita Diamant’s The Boston Girl, Rachel Beanland’s family saga is a breathtaking portrait of just how far we will go to in order to protect our loved ones and an uplifting portrayal of how the human spirit can endure—and even thrive—after tragedy.

Join us in an online conversation with author Rachel Beanland, whose debut novel will be published on July 7, 2020. Rachel has an MFA in creative writing from Virginia Commonwealth University and holds bachelor’s degrees in art history and journalism from the University of South Carolina. Before turning to writing full-time, Rachel worked in public relations and nonprofit management. She lives in Richmond, Virginia with her husband and three children.
