She made a life with one man–but always loved another at…The Summer House.Jean Stone captured readers’ imaginations with the "graceful prose, vivid imagery and compassionately drawn characters" (Publishers Weekly) of novels like Tides of the Heart and Places by the Sea. Now, in her latest novel, she reveals the public scandals of a family destined for political greatness–and the private secrets of a woman who traded her childhood dreams for a role she was born to play….As a young girl, Liz Adams always knew that her father, Boston power broker Will Adams, had big plans–dreams and schemes that would bring Liz’s older brother all the way to the White House. But when fate deals the family a tragic blow, Will is forced to change his picture-perfect plans–and place the family’s political future squarely on Liz’s shoulders.Two decades later, Liz has married the man her father molded into the perfect presidential candidate. But weeks before the election, tragedy strikes again–and this time Liz can’t hide the pain of a life lived by someone else’s rules. Seeking refuge at her family’s home on Martha’s Vineyard, Liz finds only painful memories of the past–and the long-lost love she let slip away. Now, as her family’s darkest hour looms, the woman torn between two men will finally discover what her heart has known all along….
