When Willow walks out on her own wedding, there's only one place she can go: Seaview village, on the island she once called home. But she's not the only islander back for the summer...
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The author of the cherished bestseller On Mystic Lake returns with a poignant, funny, luminous novel about a mother and daughter--the complex ties that bind them, the past that separates them, and the healing that comes with forgiveness. “[Kristin] Hannah is superb at delving into the characters' psyches and delineating nuances of feeling.”—Washington Post Book World Years ago, Nora Bridge walked out on her marriage and left her daughters behind. She has since become a famous radio talk-show host and newspaper columnist beloved for her moral advice. Her youngest daughter, Ruby, is a struggling comedienne who uses her famous mother as fuel for her bitter, cynical humor. When the tabloids unearth a scandalous secret from Nora's past, their estrangement suddenly becomes dramatic: Nora is injured in an accident and a glossy magazine offers Ruby a fortune to write a tell-all about her mother. Under false pretenses, Ruby returns home to take care of the woman she hasn't spoken to for almost a decade. Nora insists they retreat to Summer Island in the San Juans, to the lovely old house on the water where Ruby grew up, a place filled with childhood memories of love and joy and belonging. There Ruby is also reunited with her first love and his brother. Once, the three of them had been best friends, inseparable. Until the summer that Nora had left and everyone's hearts had been broken. . . . What began as an expose evolves, as Ruby writes, into an exploration of her family's past. Nora is not the woman Ruby has hated all these years. Witty, wise, and vulnerable, she is desperate to reconcile with her daughter. As the magazine deadline draws near and Ruby finishes what has begun to seem to her an act of brutal betrayal, she is forced to grow up and at last to look at her mother--and herself--through the eyes of a woman. And she must, finally, allow herself to love. Summer Island is a beautiful novel, funny, tender, sad, and ultimately triumph
The holidays were at an end, and the nine kittens adopted by the summer people have grown up but will be left behind, and, as old Moses warns them, over the winter, they will starve to death. But Gretchen, who raised Rosamundus from a kitten, overheard the cats' worries and promised them she would help them stow away on the steamer bound for the mainland. Then she will help them find homes.
When a group of children gather to spend the summer on an island, their vacation turns into a series of dangerous entanglements as they strive to save a prince in peril.
A group of children explore southwest China as they lead a community to safety and expose smugglers.
'A charming story' Lucy Coleman, bestselling author of Summer in Provence 'Full of warmth' Maggie Conway Sometimes the best holidays are the ones you least expect... After a long and turbulent year, Sarah is dreaming of the five-star getaway her sister has booked them on. White sands, cocktails, massages, the Caribbean is calling to them. But the sisters turn up to tatty beaches, basic wooden shacks, a compost toilet and outdoor cold water showers. It turns out that at the last minute Amy decided a conservation project would be much more fun than a luxury resort. So now Sarah's battling mosquitos, trying to stomach fish soup and praying for a swift escape. Life on a desert island though isn't all doom and gloom. They're at one with nature, learning about each other and making new friends. And Sarah is distracted by the dishy, yet incredibly moody, island leader she's sure is hiding a secret.

Bustins lies in a quiet corner of inner Casco Bay, just a mile or two offshore from the hustle and bustle of the tourist mecca of Freeport, yet most people know little, if anything, about it. Bustins features more than one hundred homes, some more than a century old, and boasts its own ferry service. Still, it has no electricity, no businesses, and almost no vehicles. Ben Carr, a long-time Bustins summer resident, takes readers from the island's beginnings as a farming community and a stop for fishermen through its days as a year-round community to its transformation into a summer colony with its struggles to remain a summer oasis while adapting to a changing world. He explains what the island means to him and why he considers it, above all, home.
It’s the perfect season on Summer Island: the time for beaches, ice cream, bike rides and second chances… Trent Fordham thought he’d left Summer Island behind for good. But when he inherits his parents’ vacation home—the one he’d assumed was sold long ago—he finds himself stepping right back into his past. Allie Hobbs is having a quiet afternoon in her cottage when a sudden storm leads a stranded cyclist to her front door. She’s expecting anyone but Trent Fordham, the man who broke her heart eight years ago and left her to pick up the pieces. And even more shocking? He claims she broke his heart! Trent has responsibilities on the mainland, but the more time he spends on the island, the more he feels compelled to stay. And then there’s Allie. Does she belong in a past left buried, or will this be the summer everything changes?
