Every summer the Newton family retreats to their beloved home on Nantucket for three months of sunshine, cookouts, and bonfires on the beach. But this summer will not be like any other. When Arch Newton, a prominent New York attorney, dies in a plane crash on his way home from a business trip, his beautiful widow, Beth, can barely keep things together. Above all, though, she decides that she must continue the family tradition of going to Nantucket, and at the same time fulfill a promise that Arch made before he died.

When I first started to read this book, I thought I had found a real gem of a book and author. As the book progressed, I was disappointed. The book is well written, but I found the plot to be such a letdown. Without giving any spoilers, I found that what the twins did when they discovered "THE SECRET" was appalling and violent. It bothered me a lot. After all, "THE SECRET" was not even important and they all made such a huge deal of it. And the ending was not what I would have liked. I would like to re-write the ending so that it would suit a light summer read as opposed to this ending which belongs in a very dramatic book. I will give Elin Hilderbrand one more chance and if the book is not satisfying, I will give her up.
