“Summer Secrets”


Summer Secrets by Jane Green is a light, summer read crossing 2 continents.

Like the Elin Hilderbrand novels that take place on Nantucket, ‘Summer Secrets’ begins in England and crosses back and forth to Nantucket. English Cat Coombs is a heavy drinker. Well, let’s call her what she is: an alcoholic. SPOILER ALERT: when her mother reveals that the true identity of her father is actually American, she flies over to meet him and her half sisters for the first time.  Filled with optimism about a new-found family, she is unable to keep her drinking urges in check and makes an awful mistake which banishes her from the new family. Returning to England ashamed, she gets married and has a daughter. Unfortunately, she has not learned her lesson. Her drinking is still out of control and her marriage falls apart. She decides to return to Nantucket to see if she can make amends with her American family. ‘Summer Secrets’ is a light read with a happy ending.
