  • Description

    A warm June evening, a local tradition: the students of Nantucket High have gathered for a bonfire on the beach. But what begins as a graduation night celebration ends in tragedy after a horrible car crash leaves the driver of the car, Penny Alistair, dead, and her twin brother in a coma. The other passengers, Penny's boyfriend Jake and her friend Demeter, are physically unhurt - but the emotional damage is overwhelming, and questions linger about what happened before Penny took the wheel.

    As summer unfolds, startling truths are revealed about the survivors and their parents - secrets kept, promises broken, hearts betrayed. Elin Hilderbrand explores the power of community, family, and honesty, and proves that even from the ashes of sorrow, new love can still take flight.

      Just the same skeleton, nothing new
    • Boring!!!

      By SS blue sky
      I started this book months ago and just finished it a couple of days ago. It was one of the most boring and drawn out books that I have ever read!!! The characters were pathetic and way too much time dedicated to each one. Do not waste your money on this one!!!

      I would say that this is my favorite of the 3 I have read by this author. The characters were memorable and well-described. I loved it, and I had to keep reading! Great ending!!
    • Loved it!

      By P&S mom
      As with all of Elin Hilderbrand's novels, this one owned me from page one. Living not too far away from Nantucket, I love the familiar places mentioned as well as the rich relationships among the characters. At the end of each novel I declare that one my favorite!

      Loved all of her other books, but this seems to lack something. Halfway through and I could take it or leave it. Love reading about Nantucket, but am a little bored with this.
