Loved hearing how the family is!

Just wish it were a full length book. I love this family and the author’s story telling and the narration. We need more of the Nichols Foley Levin family, please!!!

Waste of credit!

I’m a big fan of Elin but this is a worthless book. Very disappointed. No purpose and dings her name. Going to return.

A whole credit, really?????

Because I love this author I immediately bought the next two books for a credit each. It was not until the first book ended so abruptly that I realized the books were only 2 hours long. The book was only an introduction of charters. Audible, shame on YOU!

I'm grateful for the follow up but I wanted it to be longer lol.
I'm glad to see the direction the characters were going.

Beware! Only a short story!

I purchased this book because I loved Summer of 69. I didn’t read the description. Boy was I surprised when the story was just getting started, it was over. What a waste of a credit!

The perfect epilogue

This was a satisfying and realistic epilogue for a wonderful book. I loved Summer of 69 and enjoyed revisiting Nantucket with them.

Just okay

I read the Summer of 69 and enjoyed it, but did not remember the characters or plot well enough for this continuation. Therefore, the story became a jumble of characters interacting throughout several hours following the death of the family’s matriarch. There was not enough depth to the characters or storyline to care about what happened.

Too short

I hope there will be a sequel, still in ‘79. This little book keeps you hanging! Great storylines, and as always, so well written!

Follow-up

This was a fun follow-up to Summer of '69. Nice to hear how everything worked out for the Levin family.
