    Winn Van Meter is heading for his family's retreat on the pristine New England island of Waskeke. Normally a haven of calm, for the next three days this sanctuary will be overrun by tipsy revelers as Winn prepares for the marriage of his daughter Daphne to the affable young scion Greyson Duff. Winn's wife, Biddy, has planned the wedding with military precision, but arrangements are sideswept by a storm of salacious misbehavior and intractable lust: Daphne's sister, Livia, who has recently had her heart broken by Teddy Fenn.

    P.J. says: "Resist, Not Worth the Credit"

    Story

    I chose this book for a road trip with my wife based primarily on a positive review from Richard Russo. I was hoping for something Russo-like but this didn't come close. The main characters are really unlikeable and the story moves slowly. The narrator does a fair job given the source material. Making it to the end of this book was a chore.
