With the New York Times bestseller Summer Secrets, Jane Green has reached an even deeper level of emotion that will stay with you long after you turn the last page...
Living in London in her twenties, Cat had it all--a great job and wonderful friends. But with the good came the bad--a party every night, wreaking havoc, and blackouts. When she discovers the father she never knew she had, living in Nantucket, it sends her into a spiral, costing her the new family she had desperately craved. The drinking had always been a constant evil in Cat's life. Now in her late thirties, sober, divorced from the love of her life, and trying to make up for lost time with her teenage daughter, she's ready to make amends to those she has hurt. But facing the past and the unthinkable act she committed one summer night could change the course of her life forever.
This book was fantastic! Completely enthralling from the beginning until the very last page. Couldn't put it down. Jane Green paints a lovely picture of beautiful Nantucket and wonderfully tells a story of a mother suffering from alcoholism and the many phases of life she went through to become the loving wonderful woman she always was! Beautiful story about life, the lessons we learn, and the beauty of it all.
This one hit close to home.
I love Jane Green! Her books are always so good. This one was a little different for me as it pretty much hit pretty close to home. As a matter of fact it was a little difficult for me to read this one. Because I saw myself in Cat, WAY too many coincidences.
The author hit it spot on with this story which is truly a sad one. I really felt for the character.
I think a lot of people will find this hitting close to home and for those it doesn't, it is still a very good read and may shed some light for some or even open some people's eyes.
I truly recommend this book whether your an alcoholic or not, it is a good story that deals with much more than just alcoholism. The story also deals with adultery, unhappy marriages, friendships and Cat learning she has a whole other family across the pond.
Thank you St. Martin's Press and Net Galley for allowing me to read this very encouraging and entertaining story.
Did this really happen?
Great book to be able to not put down. I got my money's worth. However, I do not think money was the issue for Jane. Jason was.
I have two 1/2 sisters. I met them when not sober. In Colorado. Nothing happened like your happening...but a ton of jealousy and wierdness was in the air. WOW. Oh, my sister's names are Julie and Jill.
Pouring your heart to us was a brave and courageous decision.
Love you, Jane
