The story is about an extended family during the summer of 1969 in Nantucket. Different family members find themselves dealing with different events and issues that occurred during that time. This included racial bigotry, women’s rights, the Viet Nam war, Ted Kennedy and Chappaquiddick, and the moon launch. I generally enjoy Hilderbrand’s books and this was no exception. The story was a good read and her writing made me feel like I was on beautiful Nantucket during a very tumultuous time in our recent history.
