Beautifully written, powerfully felt, full of both abundant
joy and heart-wrenching sorrow, Beachcombers is an
extraordinary novel that centers on the bittersweet reunion
of three captivating, very different sisters on Nantucket
over one gorgeous, exhilarating summer.
Fox hasnâ€™t seen her father or two younger sisters in almost
two years, during which sheâ€™s jetted around the world and
experienced life, if not love. But now Lily, the baby of the
family, is sending Abbie urgent emails begging her to return
home to Nantucket. Their middle sister, Emma, has taken to
her bed, emotionally devastated after the loss of her
high-powered stockbrokerâ€™s job and a shockingly unexpected
break-up with her fiancĂ©. Also, Lily is deeply worried that
Marina, the beautiful, enigmatic woman renting their
guesthouse, has set her sights on the sistersâ€™ widowed
father, Jim. The Fox girls closed ranks years ago after the
haunting, untimely death of their mother, but seeing their
dad move on with his life forces each of them to take stock.
Over the course of the summer, the sistersâ€™ lives
grow as turbulent as the unpredictable currents encircling
Nantucket. When Abbie encounters an incredibly appealing
married man, she breaks her own rules in the name of love,
fearing all the while that sheâ€™ll regret it. Meanwhile,
type-A Emma learns a new definition of success, and
strong-minded Lily must reconcile her dreams
with reality. Even Marina, who has come to Nantucket to
forget heartbreak and betrayal, faces an astonishing turn of
events that will find her torn between fate and freedom. At
summerâ€™s end, these unforgettable women will face profound
choicesâ€”and undergo personal transformations that will
surprise even themselves.
