HUMP DAY READING…

The Three Ws are:

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:

Summer of ’69, by Elin Hilderbrand (Coming on June 18, 2019)

When I first saw this book, I knew that I had to add it to my shelves.  So I’ll be watching for it!  I love remembering the 60s, and joining a family in a glorious setting is always my favorite thing.

Synopsis:  Welcome to the most tumultuous summer of the twentieth century! It’s 1969, and for the Levin family, the times they are a-changing. Every year the children have looked forward to spending the summer at their grandmother’s historic home in downtown Nantucket: but this year Blair, the oldest sister, is marooned in Boston, pregnant with twins and unable to travel. Middle sister Kirby, a nursing student, is caught up in the thrilling vortex of civil rights protests, a passion which takes her to Martha’s Vineyard with her best friend, Mary Jo Kopechne. Only son Tiger is an infantry soldier, recently deployed to Vietnam. Thirteen-year-old Jessie suddenly feels like an only child, marooned in the house with her out-of-touch grandmother who is hiding some secrets of her own. As the summer heats up, Teddy Kennedy sinks a car in Chappaquiddick, man flies to the moon, and Jessie experiences some sinking and flying herself, as she grows into her own body and mind.

In her first “historic novel,” rich with the details of an era that shaped both a country and an island thirty miles out to sea, Elin Hilderbrand once again proves her title as queen of the summer novel.

    • Oh, yes, I’m hearing all kinds of 60s tunes as I contemplate this book. Everything from that era takes me back to my younger years…and I almost feel as if I’m there. One of the big reasons for adding this book to my list. Thanks for visiting, Deanna.
