I liked this book so much more than I thought I would!

I usually see these books and think they are silly and pointless, but I'm so happy I gave this author a try! I liked the way the story was written... 4 women on vacation together on a small island, the vacation being told from each woman's point of view. Surprisingly, I found a connection with each woman, despite her age, situation, personality, etc.

I'm excited to catch up on my reading so I can pick up another book by Hilderbrand!

I have read each and every one of Elin Hildebrand's books and have loved them all. This one is no exception. I love her wording and her characterization. Just all very good reads.

Great beach read (wish I'd been at the beach while I was reading it!).

A really great beach read about a woman, her two daughters and her sister who all flee their lives for a month on Tuckernuck Island. It's not Faulkner, but it is fun and frothy and I loved it.
