My rating: 3 of 5 stars
First thing, that I have to bring up, is what is up with the author's name being bigger than the book's title; are you selling the author or the book itself? The only thing saving this cover is the beach.
This is the story of Maggie and Emily. Maggie lives on Nantucket all year long whereas Emily only lives on Nantucket during the summer it is her families second home. So I am sure you guessed it Maggie is poor and Emily is rich, normally wouldn't have mentioned this but it is a huge part of this story, The Haves and The Have-Nots. But no matter what Maggie and Emily are the best of summer friends, they are Nantucket sisters. Life unfolds at a rapid rate on the pages, each page turn seems to add a few years on to the girl's ages. Pretty soon they are all grown-up but a chance encounter with the same man, Emily with him in New York and Maggie with him in Nantucket, ends with both of them pregnant. But Emily has also been seeing Maggie's older brother Ben, So who is the baby's daddy???? Eventually through a lot of living the girls get into contact again and life seemed to be working itself out so that they both could be happy. The thing that really confused me in the book is that Maggie never tells Emily how her baby's father is!!
Very curious. A enjoyable read that I didn't have to stress my brain out to understand which is what I needed when I read this and it is also probably why that this book was on many summer beach read lists.
Discover: A friendship that withstood a tremendous amount of that thing called life but still survived the storm.
