*InStyle Magazine’s “7 New Page-Turners to Read in July” *Popsugar’s “23 Perfect Poolside Reads” *Liz and Lisa’s “Best Books of July” *Bookbub’s “12 Beach Books to Read Before Summer’s End” *Woman’s World Book Club Cape Cod summers are supposed to remain reassuringly the same, but everything falls apart when three sisters and their families come together for their annual summer vacation—and they are carrying more secrets than suitcases. Maggie is the oldest. She feels responsible for managing the summer house and making sure everything is as it always has been. But she’s hurt that her parents’ recent divorce has destroyed the family’s comfortable summer routines, and her own kids seem to be growing up at high speed. Is it too late to have another baby? Jess is the middle sister. She loves her job but isn’t as passionate about her marriage. She’s not sure she can find the courage to tell Maggie what she’s done—much less talk to her husband about it. Virgie is the youngest, her dad’s favorite. She’s always been the career girl, but now there’s a man in her life. Her television job on the west coast is beyond stressful, and it’s taking its toll on her—emotionally and physically. She’s counting on this vacation to erase the symptoms she’s not talking about. The Herington girls are together again, with their husbands and kids, for another summer in the family’s old Cape Cod house. When their mother, Gloria, announces she’s coming for an unscheduled visit—with her new boyfriend—no one is more surprised than their father, Arthur, who has not quite gotten over his divorce. Still, everyone manages to navigate the challenges of living grown-up lives in close quarters, until an accident reveals a new secret that brings everyone together in heartbreak…and then healing. Poignant, compelling, and so real that you could shake the sand out of the pages, The Summer of Good Intentions is by a rising star who aims her fiction square at the heart of readers who love Elin Hilderbrand, Dorothea Benton Frank, and Mary Kay Andrews.

Sisterhood, motherhood, marriage, baking, and books—these are a few of the things that make this delightful novel a recipe for getting through the tough stuff of life—from the author of The Summer Sail and The Summer of Good Intentions. Ellen McClarety, a recent divorcée, has opened a new bake shop in her small Midwestern town, hoping to turn her life around by dedicating herself to the traditional Danish pastry called kringle. She is no longer saddled by her ne’er-do-well husband, but the past still haunts her—sometimes by showing up on her doorstep. Her younger sister, Lanie, is a successful divorce attorney with a baby at home. But Lanie is beginning to feel that her perfect life is not as perfect as it seems. Both women long for the guidance of their mother, who died years ago but left them with lasting memories of her love and a wonderful piece of advice: “At the end of every day, you can always think of three good things that happened.” Ellen and Lanie are as close as two sisters can be, until one begins keeping a secret that could forever change both their lives. Wearing her big Midwestern heart proudly on her sleeve, Wendy Francis skillfully illuminates the emotional lives of two women with humor and compassion, weaving a story destined to be shared with a friend, a mother, or a sister.

“A great summer read for fans of Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin.” (Library Journal) A trio of college friends who reunite aboard a cruise ship experience an unforgettable vacation in this compelling novel from the author of The Summer of Good Intentions, which was hailed as “everything a summer read should be” by Elin Hilderbrand. Three college roommates are celebrating a twentieth wedding anniversary by taking a cruise to Bermuda. As the ship pulls away from the pier, everyone is looking forward to lounging by the pool, sipping sunset cocktails, and reminiscing. Abby, the mother hen of the group, will be celebrating her wedding anniversary in style, even as she and her husband keep a secret from the group. Ambitious career woman Caroline happily anticipates several stress-free days away from her magazine job with her boyfriend, Javier, who may or may not be finally inspired to propose. And single mom Lee (annoyingly gorgeous and irresistibly popular in college) hopes she’ll win back the affections of her formerly sweet daughter Lacey, who after her first year in college, has inexplicably become a little bit of a monster. As the balmy pink shores of Bermuda come into view, tensions simmer, and old jealousies flare, sending the temperature from soothing to scorching in this engrossing tale of three best friends on a vacation they won’t soon forget—but not for the reasons they expect.

Im Sommer 1914 besucht der Medizinstudent Hugh seine geliebte Tante Agatha, deren Ehemann ein hoher Beamter in der Regierung ist. Er wird begleitet von seinem Cousin Daniel, der von einem Leben als Poet und englischer Gentleman träumt. Agatha besteht darauf, dass das Säbelrasseln auf dem Balkan unbeachtet verklingen wird und dass König, Kaiser und Zar wie immer in ihren Sommerurlaub gehen werden. Zudem ist sie mit weitaus Wichtigerem beschäftigt: Seit kurzem ist sie Mitglied des örtlichen Schulbeirates und befürwortet die Einstellung einer weiblichen Lehrkraft. Als Beatrice Nash mit einem Schrankkoffer und riesigen Bücherkisten in der Kleinstadt ankommt, ist schnell klar, dass sie deutlich freidenkender – und attraktiver – ist, als eine Lateinlehrerin es sein sollte. Beatrice, die kürzlich ihren Vater verloren hat, will vor allem in Ruhe gelassen werden. Ihre ganze Energie fließt in ihre Schriftstellerei und in das Entmutigen möglicher Heiratskandidaten. Nichts ist Beatrice wichtiger als ihre Unabhängigkeit. Doch Daniels Charme und Hughs scharfer Verstand wie auch sein nobler Charakter lassen sie in ihrer Haltung schwanken. Mit Ausbruch des Krieges findet der idyllische Sommer ein jähes Ende. Als die Bewohner von den ersten Soldaten Abschied nehmen müssen, ahnen alle, dass sich ihr Leben grundlegend ändern wird.

In this original, extraordinarily moving, and highly personal novel, world-renowned stage and film director Ingmar Bergman goes back to the time of his parents and grandparents, to the years shortly before, during, and just after World War I. Set in the decade beginning in 1908, The Best Intentions is, ultimately, a love story on many different levels: a man and woman in love; parents and children; and love as miracle, that love which is overriding and, so often, inexplicable. Bergman was inspired to write this loosely biographical novel when he began rummaging through the voluminous family picture albums. That, plus family letters and records, and his own memories and unique imagination, helped him recreate this lost world in evocative and graphic detail. Henrik is a poor divinity student. Anna is the much loved but slightly pampered daughter of bourgeois parents. They fall in love and, after a long and tortuous courtship, marry, despite the objections of Anna's parents - especially of Anna's mother, Karin. Karin uses everything in her power, including deceit, first to prevent the marriage, then to break it up. Yet, even her basest actions are never monstrous but filled with good intentions. In fact, all the characters act with the "best intentions", however wrongheaded their behavior. "That Bergman can extend sympathy to such behavior is a great and generous gesture, one that allows him to create characters of astonishing depth", wrote Caryn James in the New York Times. Incorporating some of the elements of stage and screen, including filmic dialogues and personal "asides", which he weaves artfully into the narrative flow, Bergman has written a novel of great beauty and uncompromisinghonesty, a work filled with joy and sadness, sacrifice and reconciliation - and above all, abiding love.

Zwischen dem Swinging London der 60er Jahre und dem schwülheißen Andalusien am Vorabend der Spanischen Revolution entspinnt sich diese fesselnde Geschichte zweier jungen Frauen, die durch ein Gemälde schicksalhaft miteinander verwoben sind. London, 1967. Odelle Bastien, aus Trinidad nach England gekommen, um ihren Traum vom Schreiben zu verwirklichen, ergattert einen Job in der renommierten Kunstgalerie Skelton. Durch einen sensationellen Fund – ein Gemälde des seit dem Spanischen Bürgerkrieg verschollenen Künstlers Isaac Robles – wird Odelle in eine Geschichte verstrickt, die ihr Leben völlig auf den Kopf stellt. Denn um das Gemälde rankt sich ein folgenschweres Geheimnis, das ins Jahr 1936 zurückreicht.
