Lexi Laney and Clare Hart grew up together having wondrous
adventures across picturesque Nantucket. And when it was
time to share intimate secrets and let their imaginations
run free, they escaped to their private hideaway: Moon Shell
Beach. But nothing stays the same. With the complicated
pressures of adulthood, their intense bond is frayed,
hurtful words are exchanged, and Lexi flees Nantucket to a
life of luxury while Clare stays behind.
later, a newly divorced Lexi returns to make amends with
those she left in her wake–particularly Clare, who still
simmers with resentment toward her friend. Their emotional
reunion is beset with major challenges, as Lexi’s return
sets off a series of startling events. And as Clare’s life
takes an abrupt detour, Lexi wonders if the happiness and
peace they once knew on Moon Shell Beach will, in the end,
prove to be as fleeting as time and the tide.
