From acclaimed author Richard North Patterson comes a
sweeping family drama of dark secrets and individual awakenings, set against
the backdrop of the tumultuous summer of 1968.
America is in a state of turbulence, engulfed in civil
unrest and uncertainty. Yet for Whitney Dane—spending the summer of her
twenty-second year on Martha’s Vineyard—life could not be safer nor the future
Educated at Wheaton, soon to be married, and the youngest
daughter of the all-American Dane family, Whitney has everything she has ever
wanted and is everything her all-powerful and doting father, Charles Dane,
wants her to be.
But the Vineyard’s still waters are disturbed by the
appearance of Benjamin Blaine. An underprivileged yet fiercely ambitious and
charismatic figure, he is a force of nature neither Whitney nor her family
could have prepared for.
As Ben’s presence begins to awaken independence within
Whitney, it also brings deep-rooted family tensions to a dangerous head. And
soon Whitney’s set-in-stone future becomes far from satisfactory and her
picture-perfect family far from pretty.
