Jenna is desperate to start a family with her husband, but it's... Just. Not. Happening. Her heart is breaking, but she's determined to keep her trademark smile on her face.

Nancy knows she hasn't been the best mother, but how can she ever tell Lauren and Jenna the reason why?

Then life changes in an instant, and Lauren, Mack, Jenna and Nancy are thrown together for a summer on Martha's Vineyard. Somehow, these very different women must relearn how to be a family. And while unraveling their secrets might be their biggest challenge, the rewards could be infinite...

Heartwarming and fresh, Sarah Morgan's brilliant new novel is a witty and deeply uplifting look at the power of a family of women.

Three generations of women learn how to unite as a family as each faces life-altering challenges on Martha's Vineyard.

The women each discover that the family tradition of keeping secrets doesn't work out well for any of them.

It's a good beach book, but not Sarah Morgan's best. I was annoyed that Jenna's story didn't get resolved, and I was annoyed that Lauren was rescued rather than allowed to rescue herself. I'm weary of knight on a white horse tales. And, I was most annoyed with the lack of credibility of the restoration on a shoestring and rent it out for top dollar fairy tale. Nobody is that clever, resourceful, and talented. And, folks from Manhattan are too shrewd to pay a fortune for shabby chic.
