About the book
It’s an unusually rainy summer in Park Slope, Brooklyn, when two unhappily married women, Lottie Wilkinson and Rose Arbuthnot, spot a battered index card on their children’s preschool bulletin board:
Little Lost Island, Maine.
Old pretty cottage to rent on a small Maine island.
Spring water, blueberries, sea glass.
Neither of them can afford to take a month away from their spouses and kids, but one look at Hopewell Cottage online and they are smitten. To share expenses, they find two unlikely companions—Caroline Dester, the damaged, beautiful darling of the independent movie scene, and Beverly Fisher, an older man recovering from a heartbreaking loss—and after a rocky start to the month, all four of them relax into island life. As the sea breeze works its magic, they rediscover the best versions of themselves, and find, to their surprise, that they can indeed be happy, and with the people they least expect.
Generous, optimistic, and as refreshing as a summer cocktail, Enchanted August is a feel-good summer read, whether you’re at the beach or just dreaming of being there.
