TRUE FRIENDSHIPS--LIKE TRUE LOVE--ARE MADE TO LAST FOREVER.... Acclaimed author of THE SECRET HOUR and many other NEW YORK TIMES bestsellers, Luanne Rice brings readers the unforgettable story of a friendship that echoes across generations, and the mystic coastal town where it all began....
Twenty-five years ago three friends grew from girls to women on the sandy shores of Hubbard's Point, Connecticut, forging a bond they swore would last always. Then time and distance drew them apart--and one was lost forever. Now her nine-year-old daughter has returned to the Point with her widowed father, longing to find the "beach girls" of her mother's stories.
But after years of heartbreak, artist Stevie Moore has withdrawn into a self-imposed exile. And for Maddie Kilvert, Hubbard's Point has become a place where innocence and tragedy forever intertwine. Can memories of blue skies and laughter bring them together again to embrace a lonely girl and a wounded man? If they can believe once more in the power of the past and the magic of a new summer, it may light the way toward a new chance at love for them all....
This is #1 in Hubbard's Point Series.
