Claire Danner Crispin, mother of four young children and nationally renowned glassblower, bites off more than she can chew when she agrees to co-chair the Nantucket's Children Summer Gala. Claire is asked to chair the benefit, in part, because she is the former high school sweetheart of rock star Max West. Max agrees to play the gala and it looks like smooth sailing for Claire-until she promises a "museum-quality" piece of glass for the auction, offers her best friend the catering job, goes nose-to-nose with her Manhattan socialite co-chair, and begins a "good-hearted" affair with the charity's Executive Director, Lockhart Dixon. Hearts break and emotions are pushed to the limit in this riveting story of one woman's attempt to deal with loves past and present, family, business, and high-powered social pressures. Elin Hilderbrand's unique understanding of the joys and longings that animate women's lives will make this her newest summer bestseller.

There is also a reading group guide available here if you would like to make this your next book club pick.

  15. Looks like your blog has really taken off. I haven't had any responses/comments to the first two books I put up. I'll play around with it for a little while and see what I need to change. I just really want to discuss the books that I read. You write great reviews. Your blog is very "classy"---professional. I am taking an online class on "online instruction". I spent the greater part of today creating a podcast. Downloading the programs was the tough part. Needless to say, my reading has suffered. I am trying to read "My Sister's Keeper" Have you read that one yet? I am excited for your give aways. You would be an awesome librarian!
