It’s summer on Nantucket, and as the season begins, three women arrive at the airport, observed by Josh, a local boy who is 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; Brenda’s sister Vickie, mother of two small boys, has been diagnosed with lung 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.

    " Great light summertime ladies' "fluff"/beach read. It's not about changing the world, just about taking a break and being entertained. Single, married, divorced---has it all for the 30/40something woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Carmen | 2/2/2014

    " I picked this book off a sale shelf on my way to a Florida vacation. I knew nothing about it. I wanted a light vacation read that kept me entertained and this definitely fit the bill. I love being pleasantly surprised by a story. I had little expectations but even so, I did not expect such a nice "no-brainer" vacation read. "
