The Book of Summer spans three generations of Nantucket women – and the family home Cliff House, which takes in the stories of all three women. A fun-loving but emotional story, Bess is going through a modern-day divorce and travels back to Nantucket to attend her cousin’s wedding. From here unfolds Bess’s story and the unique stories of her kooky mother and respected grandmother Ruby, as the family fights to save Cliff House.
