Excellent and relaxing read!
What did you love best about Summer People?
Real life situations in a beautiful scenery of Nantucket. Elin Hilderbrand gives a beautiful setting but with all the books I have read they are true to life situations. This one I thought each character played his/ her part with excellence. Always she grabs my attention from chapter 1!!
What other book might you compare Summer People to and why?
I can't compare it to any other book. Elin has a way of writing each of her books with a fresh storyline.
Which scene was your favorite?
It's difficult to choose one scene since I enjoyed the entire audio. I think Pipers explanation of babies compared to Beth's was surprising to me. Beth being a Mother I would have thought she would know the facts of real life growing inside of you but Piper was much more mature about this. That was impressive. The ending was excellent and complete not leaving me dangle to finish my own ending!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I think all and all it was a serious book not one with laughter. Bringing Beth's husband's ashes to Nantucket and getting through his death along with Marcus whose Mother was being defended in a murder trial by Archer; Beth's husband and the way the family did not blame Marcus's Mother for the death was a touching element of surprise.
Any additional comments?
I liked the way the relationships continued even after their leaving Nantucket at the end of the summer; it provided depth to the storyline.
