Summary

Summary

A warm June evening, a local tradition: the students of Nantucket High have gathered for a bonfire on the beach. But what begins as a graduation night celebration ends in tragedy after a horrible car crash leaves the driver of the car, Penny Alistair, dead and her twin brother in a coma. The other passenger—Penny's boyfriend Jake and her friend Demeter—are physically unhurt, but the emotional damage is overwhelming, and questions linger about what happened before Penny took the wheel.

As summer unfolds, startling truths are revealed about the survivors and their parents—secrets kept, promises broken, hearts betrayed. Elin Hilderbrand explores the power of community, family, and honesty, and proves that even from the ashes of sorrow, new love can still take flight.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Hilderbrand has a gift for building tension, and the reader will be willing to do just about anything to discover the real reason why Penny would drive herself, her brother, and her boyfriend over an embankment into oblivion.” Publishers Weekly
“Hilderbrand captivates with racy narrative, topical references, and characters who are both familiar and memorable.” People, praise for the author
Summerland is as readable as any beach book, but with a much bigger heart.” Boston Globe
“Hildebrand’s latest touches on heavy subject matter but has a satisfying conclusion…the story ‘clicks,’ fans of realistic fiction will find themselves devouring this novel.”  Library Journal
“Hilderbrand has once again written an engaging story wonderfully illustrating the often complex lives of young people struggling toward adulthood and the roles of parents and the community in negotiating that journey.” Booklist
