Back in high school, Tracy, Olivia, and Holly were known as The Godmothers, the girls everyone wanted to be and know. Unlike many friendships, their bond survived the years. Now, 20 years later, their glamorous leader, Olivia, whose wealthy Italian husband has died, suggests they reunite on her return trip to the United States with a luxury sailboat crossing in the Caribbean. Along with Tracy's college-aged daughter and an attentive two-man crew, they sail into paradise. But then the smallest mistake triggers a series of devastating events. Suddenly, in a desperate fight for survival, the women battle the elements, the threat of modern-day piracy, and their own frailties. Still Summer is at once a spellbinding adventure and a story about the bonds that hold friend to friend and mothers to daughters, and how facing our own mortality tests the truth of everything we think we know.
