Description: Meredith Martin Delinn just lost everything: her friends, her homes, her social standing – because her husband Freddy cheated rich investors out of billions of dollars.
Desperate and facing homelessness, Meredith receives a call from her old best friend, Constance Flute. Connie’s had recent worries of her own, and the two depart for a summer on Nantucket in an attempt to heal. But the island can’t offer complete escape, and they’re plagued by new and old troubles alike. When Connie’s brother Toby – Meredith’s high school boyfriend – arrives, Meredith must reconcile the differences between the life she is leading and the life she could have had.
Set against the backdrop of a Nantucket summer, Elin Hilderbrand delivers a suspenseful story of the power of friendship, the pull of love, and the beauty of forgiveness.
I’ve never been to Nantucket, but thanks to Elin Hilderbrand I feel as if I’ve experienced the spirit of the area.
The story is compelling. It’s easy to care about the characters and have empathy for their circumstances. The novel may make you rethink your own past and wonder how your own life might have been different if you had made different decisions when you were a teen.
This is a great book to read when you’re on vacation or when you wish you were on vacation.
