The Summer Place

When Ruby and Gabe announce that they have set a date for their wedding, Sarah is thoroughly surprised but smiles as a good stepmother should. It will be held at her childhood summer home on Cape Cod. Eli apparently has little to say. The dependable, handsome endodontist - who would normally have an opinion regarding his only daughter getting married at 22 - can barely pay attention to the conversation. Gabe is lovely and has spent a year during the pandemic living with the Danhausers in Brooklyn while he and Ruby finished college online. But Gabe resembles a sweet overenthusiastic puppy with little direction and zero skills unlike Ruby who has always been a determined, focused student. Sarah cannot understand how Eli has changed over the past year. It’s clear they were all getting on each others nerves during quarantine but she and their two young boys have forged ahead while everything Eli does grates on her very last nerve. Wondering whether her husband is having a midlife crisis, an affair or both - Sarah is at her wits end to save their marriage as she plans Ruby’s. Out at the beach Sarah is constantly reminded of the power of first love, the loss of her father and conflicting childhood memories of her own mother. The Cape Cod home, with its big beating heart is at the very center of the Danhausers lives. Three generations face many of life’s difficult decisions and reveal the untold secrets that challenge the true meaning of family. Drama with a dash of humor at its best, another winner by Jennifer Weiner. Available May 10, 2022. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
