    When a baby is found on the doorsteps what shall be your immediate response?
    That's the question and for Ruth she knows the answer.
    Meanwhile, that one emotional pull tugs at the hearts of all the women in Provincetown.
    The ripple effect is huge and it bridges the gap and the divide through reconciliation and love.
    The fact that Ruth has seen her estranged daughter Olivia is nothing compared to what results when after 30 long years she reaches out.
    What a reunion, what a memorable novel, what a great

    This was pure delight! Tuck this in your beach bag or take it on vacation, it’s a wonderful read.

The catalyst is a mysterious infant being left at her door and the path that follows.

    The summer in P’town changes the lives of everyone who surrounds Ruth. Most profound is the rebuilding of the relationship with her

    This book made me laugh, cry and long for a summer on an east coast beach town! Similar to the "Forever Summer" I read this book in one afternoon. It is highly recommended and I hope there will be a follow up at some point so we can learn what happens next for Marco, Oliva, Fern, Elise, Ben, and Ruth.

    I cannot recommend this book enough if you like women's fiction.
