Book Nook

Barefoot

I originally picked this one up because of the title.  :)  The book is about three women spending their summer on Nantucket.  Vicki is a mother of two, who is fighting lung cancer.   Her sister Brenda, is in the midst of scandal.  She just lost her job as a professor because she slept with one of her students.  Melanie recently found out her husband is cheating on her.  To top it off, she’s found out that she’s pregnant after several years of trying in vitro.  Then there  is Josh, a local college student home for the summer, hoping to find a good story to write.   Eventually Josh becomes the babysitter, a shoulder to lean on and even a lover.  They all have their own struggles and somehow the summer they spend on Nantucket is exactly what each of them needs.  This is a great summer read and I’ll be looking for more from Elin Hilderbrand.
