Publisher's Summary

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.

Another page turner by Elin Hildebrand!

This is another page turner by Elin Hildebrand. The characters were written with sensitivity and depth. This book is a great book any time of the year. It is not just a summer read.

OMG...spoiler alert:

I am cancer free as of now(about two and a half years after diagnosis) and this book really hit me hard. I would buy it again despite the knowledge I have after reading it.
