Dear Librarians,

My first two novels took readers to Paris. With my third, I hope to transport you to summertime in Nantucket. The story was inspired by an article about the erosion of the island's bluff and shoreline.

In THE BOOK OF SUMMER, physician Bess Codman has returned to her family's Nantucket compound for the first time in four years. Her great-grandparents built Cliff House almost a century before, but due to erosion, the once-grand home will soon fall into the sea. Though she's avoided visiting, Bess must now pack up the house and deal with her mother, a notorious town rabble-rouser, who refuses to leave.

The secrets of Cliff House's past are told through Ruby Packard, an idealistic newlywed on the eve of WWII, and the home's definitive guestbook, known as "The Book of Summer." Ruby always said theirs was a house of women, and by the very last day of the very last summer at Cliff House, Bess will understand the truth of her grandmother's words in ways she never contemplated.

I hope you love the read!
