Women's Fiction | Contemporary

From the New York Times bestselling author of Moon Shell Beach a moving new novel about an unexpectedly magical summer for three generations of women

At thirty, Charlotte Wheelwright remains the dreamer she s always been. But when she begins an organic garden on a portion of her grandmother s land, Charlotte learns to plant her feet in solid ground and begins to build a new life.

More often than not, ninety-year-old Nona Wheelwright contentedly spends her time reminiscing about days gone by. But with her family s annual reunion and financial meeting looming, Nona must give up her days of quiet solitude to soothe her easily riled up family.

For decades Charlotte s mother, Helen, who married into the illustrious Wheelwright family, has been pressured to adhere to their way of life. But when, during the course of the family s annual summer retreat, she discovers her husband s betrayal, Helen wonders if she sacrificed her dreams for the wrong reasons.

Artfully written and set on the glorious island of Nantucket, Nancy Thayer s Summer House is a vibrant and stirring novel about family, love, and daily choices that affect entire lives.

Sounds like a great read. Multi-
generational stories offer such rich
possibilities.

I'm guessing the gardens are a therapy for this family that will unite them
