Publisher's Summary

Now available for the first time in audio, this poignant novel by New York Times best-selling author Nancy Thayer tells the engrossing story of two women, two families, and a shocking revelation that changes everything.

When Lucy West and Kate Cunningham meet, the two spirited young women recognize kindred spirits in each other. Both Lucy and Kate married early and lack complete confidence in the brave new world of mothering. As their friendship deepens, their lives become fully intertwined. With husbands and children in tow, they spend glorious summers together in a large house on Nantucket island, sailing and feasting on lobster - and when their husbands are back on the mainland, the two women even get a chance to kick up their heels. The closest of allies, Lucy and Kate share their highs and lows, their joys and darkest secrets.

Or so Kate thought. One summer, in the midst of a devastating family crisis, Lucy reveals a truth she has long kept hidden from her best friend. And in the aftermath of this astonishing revelation, the lives of the Wests and the Cunninghams will never be the same.

I like the older Thayer

I learned a lot about cystic fibrosis in this book and the narration was outstanding.

Ugh

Seriously. Thought a fun Nantuckety intertwined family(ies)' story would be an interesting twist on your basic boy-girl love story. ...throw in a heartless twist about a child's devastating disease with a righteous mother as a cheater. Blech. Total buzzkill. BOO. 👎🏻
