Summary
  • "Friendship takes center stage in New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer's captivating, emotionally charged novel featuring all the tenderness and wit, drama and romance that readers have come to expect from this insightful, much-loved writer. When they meet as girls on a beach in Nantucket, Maggie Drew and Emma Hudson become fast friends--though Emma's well-heeled mother would prefer that she associate with the upscale daughters of bankers and statesmen rather than the child of a local seamstress. But the two lively, imaginative girls nevertheless spend many golden summers together building castles in the sand, creating magical worlds of their own, and forging grand plans for their future. Even as Emma falls for Maggie's brother, Ben, and the young women's paths diverge, the duo remain close friends. Then the unthinkable happens: a lifelong friendship is pushed to its breaking point with the appearance of the handsome, charismatic, charming, and incredibly sexy Wall Street trader Cameron Chadwick--upending both of their lives. Struggling with the difficult choices they have made and the secrets they have kept, Maggie and Emma find the road to love and fulfillment is full of bumps and twists, as well as entirely unexpected and quite wonderful turns of the heart. They also learn that while true love may be rare, a true friendship is rarer still. Praise for Nancy Thayer Beachcombers "Thayer's sense of place is powerful, and her words are hung together the way my grandmother used to tat lace."--Dorothea Benton Frank "A charming and fun summer read. Readers will love this story of family and love."--The Plain Dealer Summer Breeze "Nancy Thayer is the queen of beach books. All [these characters] are involved in life-changing choices, with all the heart-wrenching decisions such moments demand."--The Star-Ledger "An entertaining and lively read that is perfect for summer reading indulgence."--Wichita Falls Times Record News Island Girls "A book to be savored and passed on to the good women in your life."--Susan Wiggs "Full of emotion and just plain fun, this novel is delightful."--Romance Reviews Today"--
  • "When Maggie and Emily meet as girls on the Nantucket beach, they are instant best friends--even though Emily's mother would much prefer she play with the daughters of senators and statesmen than a seamstress's kid like Maggie. But after many golden summers spent building sandcastles and sharing their dreams for the future, Emily and Maggie grow apart. In her twenties, beautiful and spirited Emily worries she'll never amount to more than the glittering wife of a successful husband, while hardworking redheaded Maggie scrimps and saves her pennies, wondering if she'll ever have the luxury of a passionate romance. It seems they have little in common...until Cameron Chadwick appears on the island. A wealthy Wall Street broker, Cameron takes moonlit walks on the dunes with Maggie and romances Emily in Manhattan with lavish nights on the town. When both women discover they're pregnant, it looks like the end of their already-distant friendship. But as Maggie and Emily struggle to decide what their lives will be, they realize more than ever before how very much they need a friend"--
  • The lifelong best friendship between privileged Emma and hardscrabble Maggie is challenged and then cemented by the discovery that both are pregnant by the same man
