Publisher's Summary

In the summer of 1966, Christina Hardcastle - "Tiny" to her illustrious family - stands on the brink of a breathtaking future. Of the three Schuyler sisters, she's the one raised to marry a man destined for leadership, and with her elegance and impeccable style, she presents a perfect camera-ready image in the dawning age of television politics. Together she and her husband, Frank, make the ultimate power couple: intelligent, rich, and impossibly attractive. It seems nothing can stop Frank from rising to national office, and he's got his sights set on a Senate seat in November. 

But as the season gets underway at the family estate on Cape Cod, three unwelcome visitors appear in Tiny's perfect life: her volatile sister, Pepper; an envelope containing an incriminating photograph; and the intimidating figure of Frank's cousin, Vietnam-war hero Caspian, who knows more about Tiny's rich inner life than anyone else. As she struggles to maintain the glossy facade on which the Hardcastle family's ambitions are built, Tiny begins to suspect that Frank is hiding a reckless entanglement of his own - one that may unravel both her own ordered life and her husband's promising career.

Disappointing ending

I loved this book but was very let down by its abrupt ending. Left me with too many unanswered questions .

Seriously, with the connections!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES. I love every book I've read from Beatriz Williams. The subtle way she links all of her stories together is so interesting!

Trite and silly

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Boredom. I often listen while waiting for sleep. I could doze off several times and still follow the story line. The lapse in attention did not require a rewind. Just not much of a story. Another annoying thing was the author's use of expressions that were not in the 60's vernacular.

Any additional comments?

Skip it!

Boring

Could not finish it. Too much filler. I've noticed a lot of books these days are written with filler dialogue and a "punch" at the end. They make the reader wait until the just about the end for the action. I don't like that.

Beach book

Entertaining beach read. The story gets a bit rediculous at times, and there are way too many coincidences to be believable, but the excellent narration kept me engaged in spite of the plot deficiencies.

The 1960's social set

If you are looking for action and adventure this is not the right book for you. It was more of a social study of the times, set in the 1960's from the viewpoint of a disenchanted society wife. The protagonist is born and bred to be a rising politician's wife, How she comes to realize other options and moves in her own direction is the basis for the story. I found it to be poignant, and absorbing, It was definitely worth both the credit and my time,

Uninteresting Plot

Predictable plot line and way too much unnecessary detail made this irritating to listen to.

Good, but not as good as the first book in the trilogy

I enjoyed this book, although not as much as the first book in the trilogy. I did like it enough to buy the third and final book. Review to come! :)
