Summer Wives
Summer Wives | Beatriz Williams
"The Summer Wives is an exquisitely rendered novel that tackles two of my favorite topics: love and money. The glorious setting and drama are enriched by Williams's signature vintage touch. It's at the top of my picks for the beach this summer."--Elin Hilderbrand, author of The Perfect Couple New York Times bestselling author Beatriz Williams brings us the blockbuster novel of the season--an electrifying postwar fable of love, class, power, and redemption set among the inhabitants of an island off the New England coast . . .In the summer of 1951, Miranda Schuyler arrives on elite, secretive Winthrop Island as a schoolgirl from the margins of high society, still reeling from the loss of her father in the Second World War. When her beautiful mother marries Hugh Fisher, whose summer house on Winthrop overlooks the famous lighthouse, Miranda's catapulted into a heady new world of pedigrees and cocktails, status and swimming pools. Isobel Fisher, Miranda's new stepsister--all long legs and world-weary bravado, engaged to a wealthy Island scion--is eager to draw Miranda into the arcane customs of Winthrop society.But beneath the island's patrician surface, there are really two clans: the summer families with their steadfast ways and quiet obsessions, and the working class of Portuguese fishermen and domestic workers who earn their living on the water and in the laundries of the summer houses. Uneasy among Isobel's privileged friends, Miranda finds herself drawn to Joseph Vargas, whose father keeps the lighthouse with his mysterious wife. In summer, Joseph helps his father in the lobster boats, but in the autumn he returns to Brown University, where he's determined to make something of himself. Since childhood, Joseph's enjoyed an intense, complex friendship with Isobel Fisher, and as the summer winds to its end, Miranda's caught in a catastrophe that will shatter Winthrop's hard-won tranquility and banish Miranda from the island for nearly two decades.Now, in the landmark summer of 1969, Miranda returns at last, as a renowned Shakespearean actress hiding a terrible heartbreak. On its surface, the Island remains the same--determined to keep the outside world from its shores, fiercely loyal to those who belong. But the formerly powerful Fisher family is a shadow of itself, and Joseph Vargas has recently escaped the prison where he was incarcerated for the murder of Miranda's stepfather eighteen years earlier. What's more, Miranda herself is no longer a nave teenager, and she begins a fierce, inexorable quest for justice for the man she once loved . . . even if it means uncovering every last one of the secrets that bind together the families of Winthrop Island.

My first Beatriz Williams book! And I have to say, she‘s a good writer and has well developed storylines. Her historical accuracy is interesting and it doesn‘t dominate the storyline. This book reminds me of The Boston Girl, Susanna Kearsley, Sarah Addison Allen, Maeve Binchey, and Kate Morton.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is classified as a historical fiction in most places but I would not call it that. To me it's more of a literary fiction family drama with a little bit of romance and mystery thrown in. It was entertaining to listen to. Note: language, explicit sexual scene, and violence

Between a pick and a so-so for me. By the end of the book I was bored and ready for it to end, but I did enjoy the story. The fictional Winthrop Island that‘s the setting for this book is based on Fisher‘s Island, which is a location my husband and I have sailed to. I enjoy connections like that so that part was a bonus for me.

Crazeedi Her books were so good at the beginning , but the last one I read before this was meh... I had hoped this one would be good. Still going to check it out 6mo

While I was reading on the beach he ran up to me to show me the fudgesicle his friend on the beach gave him. I didn‘t see him coming and he touched the book with it. I can send you a new one if you would like, sending this one out tomorrow.

⭐⭐⭐ 3/5
I wasn't sure what I was reading for a while, which made it difficult to get into. The story is one we've all heard before of the drama from the upper and working classes mingling. I enjoyed the story overall but the writing could have been less choppy, and it contained odd descriptions... sometimes too many flowery adjectives, going on for most of the page, to sometimes not enough adjectives to tell what was happening.

I gave this a good try, but tonight I just couldn‘t get myself to pick this up for more than about 5 minutes at a time because it was so boring. The characters were all flat and formulaic, I didn‘t care about any of them because there was nothing THERE to care about. I wasn‘t going to read another 200+ pages when I gave no fucks at all about what happens to any of these people. DNF

4.5 ☆ 👍🏻 This is now my 2nd Beatriz Williams novel I‘ve read (enjoyed more than Cocoa Beach) w/another on my home bookshelf that I‘m MOST definitely adding to my April reading list. TSW has 3 storylines spanning the 30‘s, 50‘s and 60‘s full of mystery, family drama + romance and centers around Miranda who arrives back on the island in 1969-18yrs later. 🌊⛵️

The Summer Wives: A Novel | Beatriz Williams

I liked this romantic mystery MUCH more than I expected. The novel is told in alternating times and by focusing on alternating characters' experiences. We see Miranda, the protagonist, arrive on the isolated New England island where (in 1951) her relationship with her mother ended, where she fell in love, where she gained and almost immediately lost a stepfather. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod The alternation of the narrative creates a mystery, and at its center is Joseph Vargas, who has been in prison since that summer. What we learn reveals much about the impact of class distinction, religion, and tradition in a novel with moments that reminded me of The Great Gatsby. While it's no Gatsby, The Summer Wives is compelling and well told. 10mo

This book has been on my TBR since summer! I‘m enjoying the beachy, summery scenes. I‘m trying to decide whether I prefer it in print or audio. The leaps in time & occasional shifts of perspective are a little hard to follow because I tend to zone out when listening. Side note: Mabbie is actually fervently licking the spine of the book for some mysterious reason, I just chose a pic where her eyes are closed so she looks cuddly, not crazed!

There were holes in the plot and problems with the narrative and it was still completely delightful. It was a soap opera of a book. Having grown up in New England, the island and its culture were wholly familiar and that added to the fun. An enchanting setting, complicated people and relationships, and a trip back in time combined to make this great fun. The problems are there but on the whole didn‘t detract too much from the experience for me.

The book seemed like a promising read, with the premise being filled with lots of drama, Miranda Schuyler returns to Winthrop Island, after an incident had caused her to leave the island behind.
It kept me interested in parts, but at times i felt like DNF'ing this book. The writing felt slow and none of the characters were impactful, you feel interested enough to finish the book, but it's not a memorable book.
