The New York Times bestselling novel. Rhode Island, 1938. A sweltering summer of secrets, passion and betrayal...Lily Dane has returned to the exclusive enclave of Seaview, Rhode Island, hoping for an escape from the city and from her heartbreak.

Through lazy days and gin-soaked nights, Lily is drawn back in by Budgie's glamorous and enticing influence, and the truth behind Budgie and Nick's betrayal of Lily begins to emerge. And as the spectre of war in Europe looms, a storm threatens to destroy everything...
