Alexandra Coutts

Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts is a heart-wrenching story about love, loss and finding yourself again after losing the person who meant everything.

For seventeen-year-old Tam, running off to marry her musician boyfriend is the ideal escape from her claustrophobic high school life on the island, and the ultimate rebellion against her father and stepmother. But when Tam becomes a widow just weeks later, the shell-shocked teen is forced to find her way forward by going back to the life she thought she'd moved beyond - even as her struggle to deal with her grief is forcing her to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined.

Alexandra Coutts is an author, playwright, and graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, where she received an MFA in Dramatic Writing. In addition to Young Widows Club, she is also the author of Wish, Wishful Thinking, and Tumble & Fall . She lives year-round on Martha's Vineyard with her family.
