Island Girls (amazon link) by Nancy Thayer

I learn the best things from other Women on Fire!  And the choice of Island Girls is no exception.

Women on Fire member Trudy Dujardin gave me this book as a gift to introduce me to the work of her friend New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer.

The book had me at the cover.  Doesn’t it transport you right to your beach chair? 😉  Inside is just as inspiring!

Island Girls is the story of three estranged sisters, who are brought back together by the last wishes of their recently deceased father. The story takes place in their family summer home on Nantucket.

The author paints an emotionally charged, yet entertaining portrait of a family trying to come to terms with their past. It’s nearly impossible not to feel instantly connected to these women, and their struggle to navigate the aftermath of their father’s death.

Another bestselling author Susan Wiggs said about Island Girls, “here is a book to be savoried and passed on to the good women in your life.”

It’s a delicious summer read that I know you will enjoy.

Check out Island Girls and any of Nancy’s other popular titles— and let me know what you think.

Savor these waning days of summer and treat yourself to a little fun!
