Meredith Martin Delinn just lost everything: her friends, her homes, her social standing — because her husband Freddy cheated rich investors out of billions of dollars.
Desperate and facing homelessness, Meredith receives a call from her old best friend, Constance Flute. Connie's had recent worries of her own, and the two depart for a summer on Nantucket in an attempt to heal. But the island can't offer complete escape, and they're plagued by new and old troubles alike. When Connie's brother Toby — Meredith's high school boyfriend — arrives, Meredith must reconcile the differences between the life she is leading and the life she could have had.
Set against the backdrop of a Nantucket summer, Elin Hilderbrand delivers a suspenseful story of the power of friendship, the pull of love, and the beauty of forgiveness.
“Clearly the Madoff family inspired this plot, but Hilderbrand gives it her own sun-kissed, optimistic spin — which is not to say it’s all Rosa rugosa, just that there’s a silver lining to the ugliest of circumstances.” —Elisabeth Egan, New York Times
Ive been there. Its a long way to fall...Wish I had a best friend living on Nantucket to help remind me who I was before I was "wife". Well done!
Great for road trip!
I got this to listen to as I drive from NC to AR, about 15 hours. It filled the entire time and kept me engaged, awake and alert. It was a wonderful book. Such a good writer-- I've read several by her now -- and looking for another audiobook for my drive back!
I could not put this book down! A well written story that will keep you up at night turning the pages. Bravo.
