Fran writes: "Location, location, location! Nantucket is the quintessential location for an all absorbing summer read. Nancy Thayer's latest, “Girls of Summer” is just what the doctor ordered during these challenging times. It is no secret that Nantucket possesses magical powers. In the “Girls of Summer” those special powers heal the fractured lives of two somewhat different island families. As you become engaged in their struggles and their hopes you are transported 30 miles off shore to island life. The mere mention of the island restaurants had my senses in high gear and I could imagine myself in a different place and time. If you are looking for an escape I prescribe Nancy Thayer's “Girls of Summer”, a comfortable reading spot and your beverage of choice. By the way, one of my favorite lines is from the acknowledgments section but you will have to buy the book to find out why it thrilled me!"
