The Guest Cottage

By Nancy Thayer

Sophie Anderson, and Trevor Black unwittingly rent the same Nantucket beach cottage for the summer. Sophie, looking for time to consider her life in the face of a potential divorce from her husband, has brought her two children to Nantucket for some breathing space. Trevor Black is looking for a new situation to help his young son recover from the death of his mother. When they both show up at the same cottage, (complete with a whittling grandfather in a separate apartment), the adventure begins.

Well developed characters and good storytelling by Ms. Thayer, who lives on, and writes about Nantucket, make for a good beach read, with a refreshingly different twist.
