Get swept away to the exclusive shores of Winthrop Island in Beatriz Williams's latest historical fiction novel. In 1951, Miranda Schuyler arrives at the island, eager to meet the man her mother plans to marry. Her new step-sister, Isobel, schools her on the ways of the Summer families and the working-class Portuguese families who serve them. In 1969, she returns, but she is a different person entirely, and she is looking for justice. Exploring issues of money, class, and power, The Summer Wives is a compulsively readable story that will make you swear you can smell the salt air.
