Description

Lexi Laney and Clare Hart grew up together having wondrous adventures across picturesque Nantucket. And when it was time to share intimate secrets and let their imaginations run free, they escaped to their private hideaway: Moon Shell Beach. But nothing stays the same. With the complicated pressures of adulthood, their intense bond is frayed, hurtful words are exchanged, and Lexi flees Nantucket to a life of luxury while Clare stays behind. Ten years later, a newly divorced Lexi returns to make amends with those she left in her wake particularly Clare, who still simmers with resentment toward her friend. Their emotional reunion is beset with major challenges, as Lexi s return sets off a series of startling events. And as Clare s life takes an abrupt detour, Lexi wonders if the happiness and peace they once knew on Moon Shell Beach will, in the end, prove to be as fleeting as time and the tide."show more

Review quote

"There's nothing like two best friends and a secret beach to get a story rolling, and that's just the beginning. Ms. Thayer captures her beloved Nantucket like no one else, celebrating the island's nature and beauty, using it as a rich backdrop for this deeply moving novel of friendship. I read it straight through, and when I was finished all I wanted to do was walk barefoot on the beach with my best friend." -Luanne Rice "Nancy Thayer's sense of place is powerful, and her words are hung together the way my grandmother used to tat lace." -Dorothea Benton Frank "Best friends take center stage in this poignant testament to the enduring power of the bond between women. Moon Shell Beach is an absorbing read about the things that matter most in life. Give your best friend a copy of this big, beautiful book!" -Susan Wiggs "Nancy Thayer has a deep and masterly understanding of love and friendship, of where the two complement and where they collide. Read Moon Shell Beach and get swept away." -Elin Hilderbrand "A beautifully textured story about love, friendship, and forgiveness, a great beach read. It will make you want to pack your bags for Nantucket." -Kristin Hannah "Moon Shell Beach reminds readers of what they held dear as children, and if that changed as adults. It is also brings back memories of friendships and family ties and how our choices affect both.--"Durham Herald-Sun " "Thoroughly enjoyable . . . The focus on women's friendship as opposed to romance makes for an enjoyable change of pace."--"Booklist "show more
