"A feisty, evanescent first novel, lively enough to keep a sunbather awake." - Kirkus Reviews on The Beach Club
"A strong, emotional pull... readers will remain absorbed until the surprising denouement."- Publishers Weekly on The Beach Club "Surprisingly touching... a work of fiction you're likely to think about long after you've put it down."- People on The Beach Club " Summer People is striking not only for the ingenuity of its riveting plot, but also for the acute sense of character and the finely tuned craftsmanship with which Elin Hilderbrand brings its every nuance to life."-Madison Smartt Bell, author of Anything Goes "I find there is so much to admire in this book, from its crystalline prose to the deeply felt and finely rendered emotion of characters younger and older, male and female alike. By the end, the characters feel like good friends. Reading Summer People makes you feel like you've taken a long weekend in Nantucket. Simply a great read."-Kathleen Hughes, author of Dear Mrs. Lindbergh: A Novel
