About this title

Synopsis:

Every summer the Newton family retreats to their beloved home on Nantucket for three months of sunshine, cookouts, and bonfires on the beach. But this summer will not be like any other. When Arch Newton, a prominent New York attorney, dies in a plane crash on his way home from a business trip, his beautiful widow, Beth, can barely keep things together. Above all, though, she decides that she must continue the family tradition of going to Nantucket, and at the same time fulfill a promise that Arch made before he died.

Beth invites Marcus, the son of Arch’s final and most challenging client, to spend the summer with her and her teenage twins, Winnie and Garrett, who have mixed reactions to sharing their special summer place with this stranger. Always a place of peace before, Nantucket becomes the scene of roiling emotions and turbulent passions as Marcus, Winnie, and Garrett learn about loss, first love, and betrayal. And when they stumble upon a shocking secret from Beth’s past, they must keep it from destroying the family they’ve been trying so hard to heal.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Summer People

Summer People is striking not only for the ingenuity of its riveting plot, but also for the acute sense of character and the finely tuned craftsmanship with which Elin Hilderbrand brings its every nuance to life.”—Madison Smartt Bell, author of Anything Goes

Praise for Nantucket Nights

“Things get more twisted at every turn, with enough lies and betrayals to fuel a whole season of soap operas.... Readers will be hooked.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for the Booksense/NEBA Bestseller The Beach Club

“Elin Hilderbrand’s first novel holds up as a surprisingly touching work. Weaving together a genuine affection for the Massachusetts island setting (where the author resides) with a gift for drawing realistic characters, emotional dilemmas, and resolutions, the thirty-year-old Hilderbrand has created something more than a mindless summer read: a work of fiction you’re likely to think about weeks after you put it down.”—People

“A charming, easygoing story about the tangled lives and loves of the summer crew and the guests at a hotel and beach club.”—The Boston Globe
