This summer, four women are hoping to escape their troubles... Birdie is organising a wedding, though her own marriage is falling apart. Her sister India is running away from her first chance of happiness in a long time, while her daughter Tate is running to something, but what that is, she doesn't yet know. And then there's Chess, who is just a mystery that none of the family know if they will everunravel.Gathering together for the first time in years on Tuckernuck Island, in a ramshackle house with no running water on a remote island, the women settle into a routine. But just how long can they hide from the secrets, lies and tragedy they have left behind?

From AudioFile:

Four women spend a month on Tuckernuck Island (just off Nantucket) with no electricity, hot water, or telephones. But there IS one hot man--Barrett Lee, a local handyman. Denice Hicks portrays the women in a bright, cheerful voice as they work through the bumps in their lives. Recently divorced, Birdie Cousins, the rock of the family, nurtures her older daughter, Chess, whose former fiancé died just days after she broke off their engagement. Chess's sister, Tate, a computer software engineer extraordinaire, has a serious crush on the handyman. Birdie's widowed sister, India, a free spirit, agrees to help heal Chess's broken heart and find balance in her own life. Hicks narrates the ups and downs in the women's lives as they seek quiet days, healing, bonding, and friendship--the perfect formula for a summer romance. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
