The bestselling, award-winning author of THE LAST SUMMER OF THE CAMPERDOWNS returns with another rollicking, summertime family saga. Maine's rugged, picturesque Monhegan Island is home to weathered lobster fishermen and curious tourists…a genial if sleepy group. But when Spark Monahan --- rakish prodigal son --- returns unannounced to the dilapidated family home, his arrival launches a summer the likes of which this quiet town has never seen.
It’s 1972, and Riddle James Camperdown’s father is running for office from the family compound in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Between Camp’s desire to toughen her up and his wife Greer’s demand for glamour, Riddle has her hands full juggling her eccentric parents. When she accidentally witnesses a crime close to home, her confusion and fear keep her silent. As the summer unfolds, the consequences of her silence multiply.
