Unlikely family and unexpected friendshipcome together in New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand’s newest novel set against the sun and sand of island life. ‘The queen of the summer novel’ (People)
Laurel Thorpe, Belinda Rowe and Scarlett Oliver share only two things in common: a love for the man they all married, celebrity chef Deacon Thorpe, and a passionate dislike of one another.
When Deacon shockingly takes his own life, the women must come together in order to see out his final wish: to have his whole dysfunctional family – wives, children and all – return to his favourite place on earth, the idyllic eastern bluff of Nantucket.
But with everyone under one roof, putting differences aside will be no simple feat. Each wants to claim a special place in Deacon’s life. And yet, as certain secrets are revealed and confidences shared, improbable bonds will begin to form, as this unlikely family says goodbye to the man they loved.
