Four siblings experience the drama, intrigue, and upheaval of a summer when everything changed, in New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand's first historical novel

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 like so much else in America, nothing is the same: Blair, the oldest sister, is marooned in Boston, pregnant with twins and unable to travel. Middle sister Kirby, caught up in the thrilling vortex of civil rights protests and determined to be independent, takes a summer job on Martha's Vineyard. 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 and her worried mother, each of them hiding a troubling secret. As the summer heats up, Ted Kennedy sinks a car in Chappaquiddick, man flies to the moon, and Jessie and her family experience their own dramatic upheavals along with the rest of the country. 

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

Elin Hilderbrand was born on July 17, 1969 in Boston, Massachusetts. She has used her 50 years to write 23 novels and raise three children on Nantucket Island.

Mark Stormzand will be signing copies of his book, "Stormy Outside", in the store on Friday, June 28th from 2-4pm. This is a free signing. 
A compilation of escapades and adventures of a forester and his various canine companions. The stories cover the decades between 1975 and 2015, stretching from Idaho to Maine. Often hilarious and always a good lesson learned, this memoir is heartwarming and full of life knowledge gained from the perspective of a career working in the great outdoors.

With little knowledge of the life of a forester, Mark Stormzand pursued that career based on one assumption: Forests were outside, and that’s where he wanted to be. After graduation from Michigan State University in 1976, with forestry diploma in hand, he and his new bride headed into the wilds to see what life had to offer. Idaho, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Michigan, and

Ontario became the author’s workplace and playground. Northern Michigan eventually became home, where children were raised and many life lessons learned. One of those lessons was, “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than she loves herself.”
