J. Courtney Sullivan’s Maine meets the works of Elin Hilderbrand in this delicious summer read involving three strangers, one island, and a season packed with unexpected romance, well-meaning lies, and damaging secrets.
Anthony Puckett was a rising literary star. Joy Sousa owns and runs Block Island’s beloved whoopie pie café. Lu Trusdale is spending the summer on the island with her two young sons, working on a private project that is demanding more of her time. Over the twelve short weeks of summer, these three strangers will meet and grow close, will share secrets and bury lies. And as the promise of June turns into the chilly nights of August, the truth will come out, forcing each of them to decide what they value most, and what they are willing to give up to keep it.
Meg Mitchell Moore worked for several years as a journalist for a variety of publications before turning to fiction. The Islanders is her fifth novel. She lives in the beautiful coastal town of Newburyport, Mass., with her husband and their three daughters.
