Our Summer Book List brings us A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams for July. When I saw it described as "It is what every beach book should aspire to be--smart and engrossing." by Elin Hilderbrand, I felt like it would be the perfect pick for poolside reading.
Check out the book description for A Hundred Summers:
"Memorial Day, 1938
Lily Dane has returned to Seaview, Rhode Island, where her family has summered for generations. It’s an escape not only from New York’s social scene but from a heartbreak that still haunts her. Here, among the seaside community that has embraced her since childhood, she finds comfort in the familiar rituals of summer.
But this summer is different. Budgie and Nick Greenwald—Lily’s former best friend and former fiancé—have arrived, too, and Seaview’s elite are abuzz. Under Budgie’s glamorous influence, Lily is seduced into a complicated web of renewed friendship and dangerous longing.
As a cataclysmic hurricane churns north through the Atlantic, and uneasy secrets slowly reveal themselves, Lily and Nick must confront an emotional storm that will change their worlds forever…"
I hope you'll join me for discussion on Wednesday, July 27!
