As those chapters unfold, the alternating chapters tell the story of Miranda returning to the Island in 1969 and that picture perfect life that was in store for Isobel, Miranda's mother and Miranda herself, didn't exactly turn out the way it was expected.
The Summer Wives draws you in to the stories of all these women. The mystery of what happened the summer of 1951 and how things went so terribly wrong keeps you turning the pages. To a certain extent, it is a coming of age story and also a story of society during that time. I enjoyed the novel and gave it a four star rating.
I received this book courtesy of William Morrow through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
