Book Review

(by- Andrea )

Whenever I think of beach reads, Elin Hilderbrand comes to mind. Her books are always enjoyable and provide the perfect escape to another place and time.

The Summer of 69 brings you to the beautiful island of Nantucket during the summer of 1969, which happens to be a tumultuous time in our nation's history. The civil rights movement was intense, women were fighting for equal rights, and the war in Viet Nam raged. Protests were commonplace, and the world seemed off kilter.

Here we meet the Levin family, who spend every Summer in Nantucket visiting their grandmother. But this summer is different because not only is the world changing, but so is their family dynamic. This story is filled with family drama and secrets. Historical references to events add an extra sense of time and place and a bit of nostalgia. Don't miss this one
