At thirty, Charlotte Wheelwright remains the dreamer she's always been. But when she begins an organic garden on a portion of her grandmother's land, Charlotte learns to plant her feet in solid ground and begins to build a new life.

More often than not, ninety-year-old Nona Wheelwright contentedly spends her time reminiscing about days gone by. But with her family's annual reunion and financial meeting looming, Nona must give up her days of quiet solitude to soothe her easily riled up family. For decades Charlotte's mother, Helen, who married into the illustrious Wheelwright family, has been pressured to adhere to their way of life. But when, during the course of the family's annual summer retreat, she discovers her husband's betrayal, Helen wonders if she sacrificed her dreams for the wrong reasons.

Baker & Taylor
Three generations of women reexamine their lives and the choices they have made during a family reunion on Nantucket Island.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Character development was great. Loved that it shows how money doesn't buy everything, and everyone has skeletons in the closet.

Nancy Thayer is always an enjoyable author. Her books are easy to read and there is great character development. In this book, three women, Charlotte, Helen and Anne, work through various life and family issues at the family's Nantucket summer house. Nice modern edge to this storyline.
