A digital edition short story about a wife coming to terms with her fading marriage from bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand.
Margot's reservoir of romantic feelings for her husband Drum is running dry. But while the family is on vacation in Nantucket, Margot finds an opportunity to potentially regain her romantic love for her husband - in the form of Hadley Axelram, his ex-girlfriend. She is counting on jealousy as a relationship defibrillator.
But after forcing her surfing-god husband to make plans for a surfing lesson with Hadley and her son, Margot is left to reminisce about the summer she fell in love with Drum, and the unexpected blossoming of their relationship. When she sees Drum and Hadley spending time together, will the spark reignite - and will her marriage be saved? Or will she find that love is truly gone from this relationship?
This touching short story about a poignant stage in a marriage explores the backstory of Margot Carmichael, one of the stars in Elin Hilderbrand's novel Beautiful Day.
Elin Hilderbrand never fails to deliver! All of her books are hard to put down once you start reading. She makes everything come to life, so you feel like you are right there on Nantucket feeling the breezes and tasting the food. Great way to escape, always.
The Surfing Lesson is a prequel to The Beautiful Day, which will be released late June. I loved this short story of a marriage on the brink.
