Claire is asked to chair the benefit, in part, of rock star Max West. Max agrees to play the gala and it looks like smooth sailing for Claire until she promises a museum quality piece of glass for the auction, offers her best friend the catering job, goes nose to nose with her Manhattan socialite co chair, and begins a good hearted affair with the charitys Executive Director, Lockhart Dixon. Hearts break and emotions are pushed to the limit in this riveting story of one womans attempt to deal with loves past and present, family, business, and high powered social pressures. Elin Hilderbrands unique understanding of the joys and longings that animate womens lives will make this her newest summer bestseller.
This was a very interesting look at the year round residents of Nantucket and what it would be like to live there. I especially liked it because we have vactioned there many times. If you are looking for a light fun beach read, you have found it.
