download (2)

This book involves a family that each year comes together in July to meet at the family’s summer house in the Cape. The family consists of the parents, Arthur and Gloria, who have divorced after 46 years of marriage, and their three adult daughters. Maggie, Jess and Virgie. Maggie is the micro manager of the family and is married to Mac and they have 3 kids and the idealistic marriage. Jess and her husband, Tim, have 2 kids and are on the verge of divorce, the final sister, Virgie, is a workaholic who idolizes her father and is in a new relationship with Jackson, R.N.  The families converge upon the Cape house and secrets are revealed. Gloria arrives with her new boy toy, Gio, and Arthur must  come to terms with their divorce. This book is so beautifully written and the author makes you feel like you are vacationing along with the family. I became part of the family and  wanted to aid and comfort each family member. Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an advanced copy.
