Description

"Gripping and powerful."-Emily Giffin "The quintessential beach novel, complete with juicy drama and characters you fall madly in love with. You will devour it!" -Elin Hilderbrand "Warm, witty, sharp and insightful. Jane Green writes with such honesty and zing." -Sophie Kinsella "The perfect summer read...You'll be hooked." -Kristin Hannah When a shocking family secret is revealed, twenty-something journalist Cat Coombs finds herself falling into a dark spiral. Wild, glamorous nights out in London and raging hangovers the next day become her norm, leading to a terrible mistake one night while visiting family in America, on the island of Nantucket. It's a mistake for which she can't forgive herself. When she returns home, she confronts the unavoidable reality of her life and knows it's time to grow up. But she doesn't know if she'll ever be able to earn the forgiveness of the people she hurt. As the years pass, Cat grows into her forties, a struggling single mother, coping with a new-found sobriety and determined to finally make amends. Traveling back to her past, to the family she left behind on Nantucket all those years ago, she may be able to earn their forgiveness, but in doing so she may risk losing the very people she loves the most. Told with Jane Green's keen eye for detailing the emotional landscape of the heart, Summer Secrets is at once a compelling drama and a beautifully rendered portrait of relationships, betrayals, and forgiveness; about accepting the things we cannot change, finding the courage to change the things we can, and being strong enough to weather the storms.

Professional reviews

"Jane Green's English accent is perfectly fitting for the London journalist featured in her audiobook novel. After a shocking family secret is revealed, Cat Coombs finds herself relying on alcohol to relieve her emotional pain-- until she hits rock bottom and makes a terrible mistake while visiting family in Nantucket. Now in her 40s, Cat is a single mother who is trying to stay sober and earn forgiveness for the mistake that haunts her. Green knows exactly when to put vocal emphasis on the important parts of Cat's life, adding vulnerability to Cat's voice in general and a tone of embarrassment whenever Cat thinks of her past mistakes. Green's soothing, smooth voice and intriguing story are worth devouring. D.Z. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
