A television talk show host returns to her childhood summer home to rebuild her life after she's fired for falling ratings. The return is bittersweet as the house has been neglected for years. She's flooded with memories of the wonderful summers she spent with her sisters and cousins before a tragic event changed everything. Working to uncover what really happened the last summer they were all together, she reaches out to her family and the women all gather for an uneasy family reunion. As they share their stories they realize their recollections of their summer childhoods are vastly different and no one's lives are what they'd dreamed of when they were children. But being together again helps them all to heal from the scars of the past.

I hardly ever give reviews, howevee this was an amazingly well written book. The characters were raw and real. The story was engaging with structure like real life, not a happy fairy tale. The only detractor was the narrator, she reads way too slow. Well worth the purchase.

I really enjoy Robyn Carr’s books, but they tend to be predictable. This one was different in a great way! I was surprised by many twists in the plot and flew through listening to the book. I love Therese Plummer as a narrator.
