Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Holly Chamberlin welcomes listeners to the sunny beaches and unspoiled beauty of Maine in this poignant, thoughtful new novel of a mother and daughter in the midst of profound change.

When Louise Bessire was living in Boston, she dreamed of another way of life, far from the phony smiles and small-talk of corporate dinners. Now she's got what she wanted - though not exactly in the way she hoped. Blindsided by her husband's affair, Louise has used her divorce settlement to buy Blueberry Bay, a picturesque bed and breakfast in Ogunquit. And with a celebrity wedding taking place on the premises this summer, business is looking up.

While Louise deals with paparazzi and wedding planners, her 16-year-old daughter, Isobel, is falling hard for local boy Jeff Otten. Being singled out by Jeff - 19, handsome, and from a wealthy family - almost makes up for her father's increasing neglect. Yet even in the glow of golden beach days there are sudden, heart-wrenching revelations for both Louise and Isobel. It will be a summer that tests their strength and courage and proves that through every changing season, nothing is as steadfast as a mother's love.
