I absolutely loved this story of a divorced mother, her two daughters, and her sister who decide to spend a month at their family's summer home in Tuckernuck to each try and heal from different heartaches. I have loved everything written by Elin Hilderbrand, and this one did not disappoint. Her descriptions of Tuckernuck make the reader wish that they were there on that beautiful, serene island right along with the characters of the story.

I loved this novel, i was sad when it was over! Really got to know the characters and felt like I was also spending time on an island off the East Coast. a great book about sisters, relationships, love and loss, not a sad book, kept me intersted throughout.

Only the second book by Hilderbrand I've read, it kept me interested throughout. As with her other novels set on Nantucket, this one would be a great summer beach read.

A foursome of family members ( 2 sisters, their mother, and an aunt) come together at the family vacation home for a month to help Chess heal following the breakup of her engagement quickly followed by her former fiance's death. The author weaves together the relationship histories of the ladies with their present day statuses to keep you wondering who will end up with a "happily ever after".
