What you need to know before your trail

After her husband’s sudden death, Carley Winsted is determined to keep her two daughters in their beloved home on Nantucket. To ease the family’s financial strain, she decides to transform their grand, historic house into a bed-and-breakfast. Not everyone, however, thinks this plan prudent or quite respectable–especially not Carley’s mother-in-law. Further complicating a myriad of challenges, a friend forces Carley to keep a secret that, if revealed, will undo families and friendships. And her late husband’s former law partner is making Carley confront an array of mixed feelings. Then, during a late-summer heat wave, the lives of Carley and her friends and family will be forever changed in entirely unexpected ways.

Travel Guide

Nantucket Island

Nantucket Island

Nantucket Island

Immerse yourself in a carefree and sandy paradise of a Nantucket summer. The Nancy Thayer version of Nantucket really is somewhere to relax and see the dramas of other people’s lives play out other than your own.

Nantucket comes truly alive in her books. There’s a nice mix of Charles Dickens style charm gleaming from the glistening cobblestones streets and historic brick buildings.

Be sure to walk on the beach, in the sea and watch out for the stunning beachside houses as seen in the novel. You’ll be wanting to move here before too long

An island can be one of two things – the place to escape to for  bit of piece and quiet or a small, remote and insular looking location where you die for some company, civilization and involvement in the real world again.

Nantucket with its islanders and summer people can be both, but there’s never a dull moment!
