The Short of It:
Tragedy and heartache can ruin a family but for the Quinn sisters, their love for one another helps them come to terms with the events of the past.
The Rest of It:
The Quinn family spent summer after summer at Whit’s End, their summer house on the Cape. With four sisters and one brother they were a formidable bunch but their time on the Cape was always magical and memorable. But in the summer of 1964, eight-year-old Easton drowns under the watch of one of his sisters and the events of that night forever haunt them.
The Quinn sisters, now grown and all living on the Cape, find themselves leaning on one another as they deal with health scares, crumbling marriages, new relationships, addiction and the overwhelming grief they carry with them from that fateful night.
Rossiter is known for writing stories with heart. Firefly Summer is no exception. The setting, the food, their conversations and their real-life struggles make this the perfect summer read.
I’ve had the pleasure of reading all of Nan Rossiter’s novels and they are all wonderful. You can’t go wrong with any of them. They center around family and she always has these wonderful settings. Check out her website for more information.
