Waiting on Wednesday: The Book of Summer

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

The Book of Summer by Michelle Gable
Pub. Date: May 9, 2017



Goodreads says, "Physician Bess Codman has returned to her family's Nantucket compound, Cliff House, 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 purposefully avoided the island, Bess must now pack up the house and deal with her mother, a notorious town rabble-rouser, who refuses to leave.  The Book of Summer unravels the power and secrets of Cliff House as told through the voices of Ruby Packard, a bright-eyed and idealistic newlywed on the eve of WWII, the home's definitive guestbook, and Bess herself. Bess's grandmother always said it 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. "

You guys know that once spring is right around the corner, I am on the hunt for my next favorite beach read. How fabulous does this one sound? Nantucket, a beach house, family secrets, and it sounds like there will be a parallel storyline or flashbacks involving WWII.  It sounds like my kind of beach read. I also LOVE the cover. What do you guys think?

  3. This one is new to me! I'm so bad with parallel stories within one book - it always happens that I dislike one of the storylines and want to read only the other. I am an odd reader. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Christina. =)
