From Publishers Weekly
In 1997, forty-year-old Annie Tucker, wife and mother of three, inherits a house on Martha’s Vineyard from her beloved and recently deceased Aunt Faye. She decides to spend the summer there with her young children. Gordon, Annie’s ambitious husband, plans to come out on weekends from their home in Maryland, but a business crisis forces him back overseas, leaving Annie and the children on the island without him for most of the summer. Annie must deal with grieving her aunt, inheriting a dog, being a single parent, and the reappearance of Chase, her first love, while her romantic notions of the Vineyard—and people—are tested […] Eger’s prose is smooth and polished, and story highlights include pivotal ocean scenes that pull the reader into the tumultuous water alongside Annie.”

From Kirkus Reviews:
“In this debut novel, a married woman confronts her might-have-beens and searches for her true self. An intelligent, sensitive storyteller with a strong sense of place, vividly evoking Martha’s Vineyard’s residents, landmarks, shops, and atmosphere, Eger writes dialogue, creates characters, and develops her tale with great skill […] This well-written work benefits from the heroine’s admirable willingness to examine herself honestly.”

From
 Amazon Reviews:
“Refreshing to find a book that is easy to read without being a typical romance novel. The romance here is multilayered. Annie’s romance with the island is as fascinating as is her romance with her family and husband. Both are challenged and tested throughout the story, and the journey involves the reader both in her life and in her very being. This is the kind of book you want to curl up with on the couch for the weekend.”
“Skillfully written novel that drew me in right to the last page. I did not want it to end. Friendships, acceptance, and so much more. I highly recommend this book!”
“I loved it! Always wanted to visit Martha’s Vineyard, and now I feel like I have. A great story, beautiful writing. I instantly related to Annie.”
“I could not put it down. This is the perfect summer read.”
