Summerland: Glimpse into the Real Nantucket

By Elin Hilderbrand

Genre: Women's Fiction, Popular Adult Fiction

Summer isn't summer without the latest Elin Hilderbrand read and a vicarious vacation to Nantucket!

ReviewThe real Nantucket, the year-round islanders are at the center of this novel. Zoe, a chef, and her twins Hobby and Penny are the golden children of their high school. Penny a gifted singer, Hobby a gifted athlete. The whole island is shocked when Penny drives off the road at high speed, three friends in the Jeep, including boyfriend Jake and friend Demeter. The book follows three island families as they deal with the accident and resulting events, told from rotating character's perspectives. This novel was fast-paced yet I felt very connected to the characters and their emotions. 

Song to Read by: "Next in Line" by Walk the Moon
