Summary
"Becca Meister Fitzpatrick - wife, mother, grandmother, and pillar of the community - is the dutiful steward of her family's iconic summer tradition. That is until she discovers her recently deceased husband squandered their nest egg. As she struggles to accept that this is likely her last season in Long Harbor, Becca is inspired by her granddaughter's boldness in the face of impending single-motherhood and summons the courage to reveal a secret she was forced to bury long ago. She has a daughter she gave up fifty years ago. The question now is how her other daughter, Rachel with whom Becca has always had a strained relationship, will react. Eden is the account of the days leading up to the Fourth of July weekend, as Becca prepares to disclose her secret and her son and brothers conspire to put the estate on the market, interwoven with the century-old history of Becca's family - her parents beginnings and ascent into affluence, and her mother's own secret struggles in the grand home her father named Eden." -- Back cover
