Itâ€™s a hot August Saturday on Nantucket Island. Over the
course of the next 24 hours, two lives will be transformed
Marguerite Beale, former chef of culinary
hot spot Les Parapluies, has been out of the public eye for
over a decade. This all changes with a phone call from
Margueriteâ€™s goddaughter, Renata Knox. Marguerite has not
seen Renata since the death of Renataâ€™s mother, Candace
Harris Knox, fourteen years earlier. And now that Renata is
on Nantucket visiting the family of her new fiancĂ©, she
takes the opportunity, against her fatherâ€™s wishes, to
contact Marguerite in hopes of learning the story of her
motherâ€™s lifeâ€”and death. But the events of the day spiral
hopelessly out of control for both women, and nothing ends
up as planned.
Welcome to The Love Seasonâ€”a
riveting story that takes place in one day and spans
decades; a story that embraces the charming, pristine island
of Nantucket, as well as Manhattan, Paris and Morocco. Elin
Hilderbrandâ€™s most ambitious novel to date chronicles the
famous couplings of real lives: love and friendship, food
and wine, deception and betrayalâ€”and forgiveness and healing.
