Once on Nantucket, Teddy is forced to confront feelings he's long repressed. As he struggles with his mother's illness and his daughter's disdain, he learns some stunning truths about the father he once idolized and the shocking extent of his daughter's pain. And when he meets a woman who challenges everything he thought he understood about relationships, he unexpectedly finds the life he never knew he wanted.
"Teddy is forced to choose between becoming the senator from California or the 'Prince of Nantucket'. If you think you know how it ends, you're right. But if you think you won't get at least a little weepy, you're wrong." (Publishers Weekly)
