Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Shelley Noble comes a heartrending and uplifting novel about friendship, love, and what we’re willing to sacrifice for our dreams.

What was supposed to be an idyllic wedding leads to an unexpected journey of self-discovery....

When Lillo Gray pulls up to Kennebunkport’s most exclusive hotel wearing a borrowed dress and driving a borrowed VW van, she knows she’s made a big mistake. She’s not even sure why Jessica Parker invited her to her posh wedding. They haven’t seen each other since they were unhappy 14-year-old girls at fat camp. And now they’re from two completely different worlds. There’s no way Lillo fits in the rarefied circles Jessica travels in. 

Jess isn’t sure she’s ready to go through with this wedding, but she’s been too busy making everyone else happy to think about what she wants. But when she and her two closest friends, Allie and Diana, along with Lillo, discover her fiancé with his pants down in the hotel parking lot, she’s humiliated...and slightly relieved. In a rush to escape her crumbling life, Jess, Allie, and Diana pile into Lillo’s beat-up old van and head up the coast to Lighthouse Island. Once there, she hopes to figure out the next chapter in her life. 

Nursing broken hearts and broken dreams, four lost women embark on a journey to find their way back into happiness with new love, friendship, and the healing power of Lighthouse Beach.

Moving Story

Starts out as a farce but ends up giving readers much to think about. I could not stop listening.

Left me wanting to hear more of the story

Few stories leave me wanting to hear more. There are so many ways this story could be continued. Breakout of how each of the four main characters went and what changes they made. It is rare that i want this from a story but didn’t want it to end.

Well written

This was a very well written book that inspired me to take a long weekend in Maine! The author has an enviable command of the English language which motivates you to periodically grab a dictionary. Although I enjoyed the narrator, she needs to work on her Male voices.

Blah

I had hard time getting through the book. Liked some of the characters but overall boring/slow. Narration very monotone- made the book depressing to listen to.

Welcome beach read!

I enjoyed the story, and wanted to continue listening to it. Friendship and being stuck in ones life and being afraid of to move forward is underlining theme.

Difficult to get through

I love this author but found this book too depressing. Everyone had issues and there wasn’t enough laughter. I found myself saying, get on with it. Or get over it.
