Welcome to the most tumultuous summer of the 20th century. It's 1969, and for the Levin family, the times they are a-changing. Every year, the children have looked forward to spending the summer at their grandmother's historic home in downtown Nantucket. But like so much else in America, nothing is the same.

By far the best book Ms. Hilderbrand has ever written. She brought to the readers attention what it was like to live and communicate at the end of the sixties and the time. We are so consumed with our social media and electronics that we take everything for granted. Reading this story has made me more humble.
