Posted on May 23rd, 2009 by in Fiction

From the bestselling author of Second Chance, Jane Green comes a captivating novel about the strength of family, friendship, and self-discovery – The Beach House.

The Beach House by Jane Green, ISBN 9780141022031
Known in Nantucket as the eccentric woman who lives in the rambling house atop the bluff, Nan doesn’t care what people think. She’s sixty-five years old, her husband died twenty years ago, her beauty has faded, and her family has flown. If her neighbours are way, why shouldn’t she skinny-dip in their swimming pools and help herself to their flowers? But when she discovers the money she thought would last forever is dwindling and she could lose her beloved house, Nan knows she has to make drastic changes.

So Nan takes out an ad: Rooms to rent for the summer in a beautiful old Nantucket home with water views and direct access to the beach.

Slowly, people start moving into the house, filling it with noise, with laughter, and with tears. First arrives handsome Daniel, quiet and contemplative and struggling to break free of his secrets. Then there is Daff, a recent divorcee who is looking to relax and reconnect with that part of herself that is neither wife nor mother, while her rebellious teenage daughter spends the summer with her father. Nan’s son comes home for the summer, and as the house comes alive again, Nan finds her family expanding until an unexpected visitor turns all their lives upside down.
