This is a story about grief in some of its many forms, about families and secrets, about forgiveness and morality, and about moving forward through things that seem impenetrable. Beth along with her teen-aged twins, Winnie and Garrett, and a young friend of Arch, the deceased husband and father come to her family home on Nantucket to try and heal, and work through Arch's death. Beth has kept a secret about something that happened on Nantucket long before she ever met Arch or had her family. This summer, that secret will be revealed and the ramifications on her family could tear it apart. It took me awhile to get into this book but once I did, I enjoyed it. At first I thought it was going to veer off into a simple romance but that didn't happen and it turned out to be much more satisfactory read that I would have guessed.
