"It's a hot August Saturday on Nantucket Island. Over the course of the next twenty-four hours, two lives will be transformed forever." "Marguerite Beale, former chef of culinary hot spot Les Parapluies, has been out of the public eye for more than a decade. This all changes with a phone call from Marguerite's goddaughter, Renata Knox. Marguerite has not seen Renata since the death of Renata's mother, Candace Harris Knox, fourteen years earlier. And now that Renata is on Nantucket visiting the family of her new fiance, she takes the opportunity, against her father's wishes, to contact Marguerite in hopes of learning the story of her mother's life - and death. But the events of the day spiral hopelessly out of control for both women, and nothing ends up as planned." "Welcome to The Love Season, a story that takes place in one day and spans decades; a story that embraces the charming, pristine island of Nantucket, as well as Manhattan, Paris, and Morocco."--BOOK JACKET.Hilderbrand, Elin is the author of 'Untitled #2' with ISBN 9780312993771 and ISBN 0312993773.
