An intense tale of love and loyalty set against the backdrop of endless summer island life from bestselling and beloved author Elin Hilderbrand.
Greg and Tess MacAvoy are one of four prominent couples who count each other as best friends. As pillars of their close-knit community, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers are important to their friends and neighbors, and especially to each other. But just before the beginning of another idyllic summer, Greg and Tess are killed when their boat capsizes during an anniversary sail. As the warm weather approaches and the island mourns their loss, nothing can prepare the MacAvoy's closest friends for what will be revealed.

I was reeled by the initial bomb drop of a mystery at the very beginning, but page after page of some fairly annoying main characters, I was disappointed how it all came together in the end. I wasn't expecting a suspense thriller or anything like that, but it didn't much care for the book overall.
A bit confusing
I had a hard time following all of the characters in this book. It was confusion who was with who...I recently read The Island The Blue Bistro and enjoyed these books much more than The Castaways. Maybe because the book was just so sad.
Wonderful, marvelous book --read during a summer when my best friend died unexpectedly. The book was actually healing, restorative. I highly recommend it!
