New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer
invokes the shimmering seascape of Nantucket in a delightful
novel that resonates with the heartache and hope of growing
up, growing wise, and the bittersweet choices we must be
brave enough to make.
Courtney Hendricks will never forget the magical summers she
spent on Nantucket with her college roommate, Robin
Vickerey, and Robinâ€™s charismatic, turbulent,
larger-than-life family, in their gorgeous island house. Now
a college English professor in Kansas City, Courtney is
determined to experience one more summer in this sun-swept
paradise. Her reason for going is personal: Courtney needs
to know whether Robinâ€™s brother James shares the feelings
sheâ€™s secretly had for him.
Time with the Vickerey family always involves love and
laughter, and this season is no different. Vivacious
matriarch Susanna Vickerey is celebrating her sixtieth
birthday, but beneath the merriment, trouble is brewing. The
family patriarch, Dr. Alastair Vickerey, is quiet and
detached, while unspoken tension looms over oldest son
Henry, a respected young surgeon. Warm and witty Robin, the
most grounded of the siblings, is keeping a secret from her
parents. Iris, the colorful baby of the brood, remains
rudderless and in need of guidance. And the sexy, stunningly
handsome, untouchable Jamesâ€”to Courtneyâ€™s dismayâ€”may be in
love with a beautiful and vibrant local artist. As the
summer unfolds, a crisis escalates, surprising truths are
revealed, and Courtney will at last find out where her heart
and her future lie.
Weaving the trials and uncertainty of real life into a
tapestry of passion, hope, and courage, The Island
House is a beautifully told story about the ties that
bind usâ€”and how the blessings of love and family heal us in
ways we never dream possible.
