Selected by Indie Booksellers for the June 2010 Indie Notables
“Cassie and Peck are sisters, not that it would be apparent to anyone. Cassie was raised in Switzerland, growing up to be a journalist with a studious streak. Peck was raised in New York, growing up to be an actress thirsty for the limelight. They couldn't be more different. Their one common thread was Aunt Lydia and summers in her home in Southampton. Lydia's death has brought the girls together for one last summer, as her will left them the house in Southampton with the stipulation they spend the summer together. This is a perfect summer read, sprinkled liberally with delicious literary allusions.”

Description

A delightful comedy of manners about two sisters who must put aside their differences when they inherit a house in the Hamptons.
