Summerland
Summerland: A Novel | Elin Hilderbrand
34 posts | 40 read | 15 to read
A warm June evening, a local tradition: the students of Nantucket High have gathered for a bonfire on the beach. But what begins as a graduation night celebration ends in tragedy after a horrible car crash leaves the driver of the car, Penny Alistair, dead, and her twin brother in a coma. The other passengers, Penny's boyfriend Jake and her friend Demeter, are physically unhurt - but the emotional damage is overwhelming, and questions linger about what happened before Penny took the wheel. As summer unfolds, startling truths are revealed about the survivors and their parents - secrets kept, promises broken, hearts betrayed. Elin Hilderbrand explores the power of community, family, and honesty, and proves that even from the ashes of sorrow, new love can still take flight.

Poignant and moving. I didn't like most of the characters they were too woe-is-me. Only Hobby and Jake were the exceptions and they carried the story.

1. Yes!! Often buy books based on just the cover. 2. Sometimes! Only when there is a cool breeze. 3. I like to stop at the end of the chapter. 4. Always! 5. Of course!
@SilversReviews

SilversReviews Covers are a draw for me too. A cool breeze is nice, but I do love the heat. I am a stop-at-the-end-of-the-chapter reader or at least some point that looks like a good stopping point like the end of a page. :) Thanks for playing. 1y
Judybskt If there is a break in the page I will stop there. 1y

I think im going to love her summer books just as much as her Winter series. I've not been able to put this book down.

A day after finishing (and enjoying) my first Elin Hilderbrand, another is waiting in the Lake Wobegon Trail Little Free Library. Hope it lives up to my first. 😊 #fate #beachreads 👙☀️🌊

I couldn't decide which direction to go in for #summerwinterreads so I ended up picking two books that fit the theme by the same author. #junebookbugs

Finally done! This took forever, it moved kinda slow and was definitely not a beach read. But overall not bad. On to the next! #24in48

Ugh- I'm annoyed and angry after finishing this book that went nowhere. Thought I would at least enjoy a "lighter" beach read- intoned by the false cover. ⭐️⭐️

I was expecting a casual beach read for lunch breaks and whenever I didn't want to think too hard... Instead I got death, mental illness, addiction, and dysfunctional families aka exactly my repartee. Perfect (for me) this summer.
