Greg and Tess MacAvoy are one of four prominent Nantucket couples who count each other as best friends. As pillars of their close-knit community, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers are important to their friends and neighbors, and especially to each other. But just before the beginning of another idyllic summer, Greg and Tess are killed when their boat capsizes during an anniversary sail. As the warm weather approaches and the island mourns their loss, nothing can prepare the MacAvoy's closest friends for what will be revealed.
Once again, Hilderbrand masterfully weaves an intense tale of love and loyalty set against the backdrop of endless summer island life.

Katie Hale portrays four close-knit Nantucket couples, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers, who call one another "the Castaways." Hale's depiction of their complex relationships, including their sharing of children and marriage partners, is believable, although some aspects of the story are maudlin. When the MacAvoys set sail alone for Martha's Vineyard to celebrate their anniversary, tragedy strikes--and the question of murder arises. Hale's stylistic portrayals give each character a distinct voice and a credible set of circumstances. However, the plot is somewhat overdone, and the novel would be better as an abridgment. Solving the mystery of the couple's death is the most compelling part. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
