New York Times and USA Today bestselling
author Nan Rossiter's touching new novel reunites four
sisters at their childhood vacation spot on Cape Cod--
they uncover the truth about a past tragedy to find their
future as a family. . .
The close-knit Quinn
siblings enjoyed the kind of idyllic
childhood that seems made for greeting cards, spending
summer at Whit's End, the family's home on Cape Cod. Then
comes the summer of 1964, warm and lush after a rainy
spring--perfect firefly weather. Sisters Birdie, Remy,
Sailor, Piper, and their brother, Easton, delight in
catching the insects in mason jars to make blinking
lanterns. Until, one terrible night, eight-year-old
drowns in the rising tide.
Decades later, the
sisters have carved out separate lives on
the Cape. Through love and heartbreak, health issues,
raising children, and caring for their aging parents,
have supported each other, rarely mentioning their deep
childhood loss. But one evening, as they sit together at
Whit's End to watch the sun set, the gathering fireflies
elicit memories of that long-ago night, and a tumult of
regrets, guilt, and secrets tumble out.
yet hopeful, Firefly Summer is an uplifting
story of the resilience of sisterhood and the bright
glimpses of joy and solace that, like fireflies after
can follow even the deepest heartaches.
