Multiple generations gather at a beloved summer house—wondering who will inherit it next—in this “dramatic and moving” novel (Booklist). Some houses have a personality of their own. Larchmere is that kind of place—a splendid, sprawling home with breathtaking views that open to briny Atlantic air and seabirds’ calls. It’s where Tilda McQueen O'Connell grew up and now vacations each year, and where she and her siblings—Adam, Hannah, and Craig—are commemorating the tenth anniversary of their mother’s passing. But instead of the bittersweet but relaxing reunion Tilda expected, she finds chaos. Her father’s plan to marry a younger woman has thrown the fate of the beach house into uncertainty. For Tilda, the stakes seem the highest. Alone and vulnerable two years after her husband’s death, she sees Larchmere as not just a cherished part of her history, but her eventual refuge from the world. Faced with losing that legacy, Tilda must embrace an unknown future. And all the McQueens must reconcile their shared, sometimes painful past—and learn how to love one another even when it means forging a life apart. This poignant, evocative novel sweeps you into the picturesque town of Ogunquit, Maine, where a family in flux explores their ties to a beautiful beach house, and to each other. “Explores questions about the meaning of home, family dynamics and tolerance.”—Bangor Daily News “Provides a touristy taste of Maine's seasonal attractions.”—Publishers Weekly “A novel for all seasons.”—The Maine Sunday Telegram
