Synopsis

Meredith Martin Delinn just lost everything: her friends, her homes, her social standing - because her husband Freddy cheated rich investors out of billions of dollars.

Desperate and facing homelessness, Meredith receives a call from her old best friend, Constance Flute. Connie's had recent worries of her own, and the two depart for a summer on Nantucket in an attempt to heal. But the island can't offer complete escape, and they're plagued by new and old troubles alike. When Connie's brother Toby - Meredith's high school boyfriend - arrives, Meredith must reconcile the differences between the life she is leading and the life she could have had.

Set against the backdrop of a Nantucket summer, Elin Hilderbrand delivers a suspenseful story of the power of friendship, the pull of love, and the beauty of forgiveness.

Though the premise of this book offers an adequate plot and though the writing is pristine, the story appears too implausible to be realistic.

Hilderbrand does a wonderful job of painting a picture of a confused and angry, yet lovestruck wife. She reminds us of the extent women will go to to protect their husbands...

Hilderbrand's tone is breezy and easy as always. But she's borrowed details so freely from Ruth Madoff's ruined life that it feels as if another crime — identity theft — has been committed.
