Publisher's Summary

In A Week at the Shore, New York Times best-selling author Barbara Delinsky explores how lives and relationships are forever changed when three sisters reunite at their family Rhode Island beach house

One phone call is all it takes to lure real estate photographer Mallory Aldiss back to her family Rhode Island beach home. It's been 20 years since she's been gone - running from the scandal that destroyed her parents' marriage, drove her and her two sisters apart, and crushed her relationship with her first love. But going home is fraught with emotional baggage - memories, mysteries, and secrets abound. 

Mal's 13-year-old daughter, Joy, has never been to the place where Mal's life was shaped and is desperate to go. Fatherless, she craves family and especially wants to spend time with the grandfather she barely knows. 

In just seven watershed days on the Rhode Island coast three women will test the bonds of sisterhood, friendship, and family, and discover the role that love and memory plays in defining their lives.

YET ANOTHER “Light Beachy” Parental Death😢

🤬 I seriously can’t believe this. AGAIN!!! What is the deal with tragic death of a parent in these “light beach reads”???!!! I go out of my way to comb through reviews to make sure I don’t have to read about parental death-it’s a sore spot for me. Why why why do this?! I really do think I’m done with Audible this time. Also, there is no T in Alzheimer’s! It’s not pronounced “Altzheimer’s”. Ugh.

Narrator Too Dramatic

In my opinion, the storyline of the book could’ve used the viewpoint of another character. Also, the narration was overly dramatic which, for me, was very irritating.

Always Look forward to her Books!

You can get lost in the descriptions that wrap around you and take to the place she is at. Love her writing.

This one got to me...in a good way. Family is important....too important to throw away. Gosh, I could listen again.
