The New York Times bestselling author of The Summer Wives returns with the story of another Schuyler sister, a young woman embroiled in politics, passion, and dangerous secrets....
In the summer of 1966, Christina “Tiny” Hardcastle stands on the brink of a breathtaking future.

Now, as her handsome husband, Frank, runs for a Massachusetts seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, that long-sought destiny lies nearly within reach.
But behind her glamorous facade, Tiny’s flawless life is cracking. She and Frank both have secrets in their pasts that could shatter their political ambitions and the intricate truce of their marriage. So when two unwelcome visitors arrive at the Hardcastle family’s Cape Cod estate—Frank’s cousin Caspian, a Vietnam war hero who knows a thing or two about Tiny’s hidden past, and an envelope containing incriminating photographs—Tiny is forced into a reckless gamble against a house that always, always wins…

A trip back in time
What a wonderful book! Tiny and her sisters, her husband and his cousin all bring 1964 to 1966 back to life. Beatriz's writing is vivid and absorbing, it paints a picture of a Boston family full of secrets and mystery. It portrays the longings and choices that each of us must make. I can't wait for the next installment!
Great summer read!
Tiny little thing is anything but tiny! Another eloquently written book by Williams. Fans of "the secret life of Violet Grant", will also enjoy this book. Highly recommend this book!
