Join the Random House Reader's Circle for author chats and more.Friendship takes center stage in New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer's captivating, emotionally charged novel featuring all the tenderness and wit, drama and romance that readers have come to expect from this insightful, much-loved writer. When they meet as girls on a beach in Nantucket, Maggie McIntyre and Emily Porter become fast friends—though Emily's well-heeled mother would prefer that she associate with the upscale daughters of bankers and statesmen rather than the child of a local seamstress. But the two lively, imaginative girls nevertheless spend many golden summers together building castles in the sand, creating magical worlds of their own, and forging grand plans for their future. Even as Emily falls for Maggie's brother, Ben, and the young women's paths diverge, the duo remain close friends. Then the unthinkable happens: Handsome, charismatic, charming, and incredibly sexy Wall Street trader Cameron Chadwick upends both their lives and disrupts their friendship. Struggling with the tough choices they must make and the secrets they must keep, the two young women discover that the road to love and fulfillment is full of bumps and twists. And while true love may be rare, Maggie and Emily find that friendship is even rarer—and more valuable still.Praise for Nantucket Sisters "Thayer obviously knows her Nantucket, and the strong sense of place makes this the perfect escapist book for the summer, particularly for fans of Elin Hilderbrand."Booklist "Thayer keeps readers on the edge of their seats with her dramatic story spanning the girls' childhood to adulthood. This wonderful beach read packs a punch."Library Journal Praise for Nancy Thayer Beachcombers "Thayer's sense of place is powerful, and her words are hung together the way my grandmother used to tat lace."—Dorothea Benton Frank "A charming and fun summer read . . .

All [these characters] are involved in life-changing choices, with all the heart-wrenching decisions such moments demand."—The Star-Ledger "An entertaining and lively read that is perfect for summer reading indulgence."—Wichita Falls Times Record News Island Girls "A book to be savored and passed on to the good women in your life."—Susan Wiggs "Full of emotion and just plain fun, this novel is delightful."—Romance Reviews TodayFrom the Trade Paperback edition.
