Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's summer on Nantucket, and as the season begins, three

women arrive at the local airport, observed by Josh, a local

boy, home from college. Burdened with small children,

unwieldy straw hats, and some obvious emotional issues,

the women--two sisters and one friend--make their way to

the sisters' tiny cottage, inherited from an aunt. They're all

trying to escape from something: Melanie, after seven failed

in-vitro attempts, discovered her husband's infidelity and

then her own pregnancy; Brenda embarked on a passionate

affair with an older student that got her fired from her

prestigious job as a professor in New York; and her sister

Vickie, mother to two small boys, has been diagnosed with

cancer. Soon Josh is part of the chaotic household, acting

as babysitter, confidant, and, eventually, something

more, while the women confront their pasts and map out

their futures.

Synopsis:

Visiting Nantucket with their children during a summer vacation, three women befriend a local youth and share their struggles with such challenges as infidelity, the loss of a job under scandalous circumstance, and health problems. By the author of Nantucket Nights.
