Memorial Day, 1938: New York socialite Lily Dane has just returned with her family to the idyllic oceanfront community of Seaview, Rhode Island, expecting another placid summer season among the familiar traditions and friendships that sustained her after heartbreak. That is, until Greenwalds decide to take up residence in Seaview. Nick and Budgie Greenwald are an unwelcome specter from Lily's past: her former best friend and her former fiancee, now recently married - an event that set off a wildfire of gossip.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It is a wonderful, languid beach read. A lovely period piece, very descriptive and entertaining. I didn't want the story to end.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Hundred Summers?

There are many memorable moments of A Hundred Summers - the great storm, how Nick ended up with Budgie, the moment Lily discovers what society really thinks of her... it's all delicious!

Which character – as performed by Kathleen McInerney – was your favorite?

I liked the voice of Lily and Budgie. Kathleen McInerney was able to voice all of the characters in a way that I was able to tell who was who every single time.

Who was the most memorable character of A Hundred Summers and why?

Lily, of course. It is her story and it is a good story. A Hundred Summers is a great escape and a beautiful love story.
