Elin Hilderbrand’s latest novel begins as a graduation night celebration ends in tragedy. As the story unfolds, Hilderbrand explores the power of community, family, and honesty, and proves that even from the ashes of sorrow, new love can take flight.
Summerland is the latest in a series of best-selling books by Hildebrand. Dubbed “The Queen of the Beach Novel,” Hilderbrand has used Nantucket as the setting for all of her books, including A Summer Affair, Barefoot, The Island, and The Castaways. She grew up in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, and traveled extensively before settling on Nantucket and choosing it as her muse. She is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and the graduate fiction workshop at the University of Iowa.
