A novel by

 
 
'I just LOVE [Elin Hilderbrand's] books, they are such compulsive reads' - Marian Keyes

Welcome to the most tumultuous summer of the twentieth century . . .

Every year the Levin children have looked forward to spending the summer at their grandmother's historic island home, but this year it's not to be. Blair, the oldest sister, is marooned in Boston, pregnant with twins and unable to travel. Middle sister Kirby is caught up in the thrilling vortex of civil rights protests with her friend Mary Jo Kopechne. And Tiger, the only son, has just been deployed to Vietnam.

Thirteen-year-old Jessie, the youngest of them all, suddenly feels like an only child, marooned in the house with her out-of-touch grandmother who is hiding secrets of her own . . .

As the summer heats up, Teddy Kennedy sinks a car in Chappaquiddick, man walks on the moon, and Jessie experiences some sinking and flying herself, as she grows into her own body and mind.

In her first historical novel, Elin Hilderbrand once again cements her title as 'Queen of the Summer Novel' (People).
