Four siblings experience the drama, intrigue, and upheaval of the '60s summer when everything changed in Elin Hilderbrand's #1 New York Times bestselling historical novel. Welcome to the most tumultuous summer of the twentieth century. It's 1969, and for the Levin family, the times they are a-changing. Every year the children have looked forward to spending the summer at their grandmother's historic home in downtown Nantucket. But like so much else in America, nothing is the same: Blair, the oldest sister, is marooned in Boston, pregnant with twins and unable to travel. Middle sister Kirby, caught up in the thrilling vortex of civil rights protests and determined to be independent, takes a summer job on Martha's Vineyard. Only-son Tiger is an infantry soldier, recently deployed to Vietnam. And thirteen-year-old Jessie suddenly feels like an only child, marooned in the house with her out-of-touch grandmother and her worried mother, while each of them hides a troubling secret. As the summer heats up, Ted Kennedy sinks a car in Chappaquiddick, man flies to the moon, and Jessie and her family experience their own dramatic upheavals along with the rest of the country. In her first historical novel, rich with the details of an era that shaped both a nation and an island thirty miles out to sea, Elin Hilderbrand once again earns her title as queen of the summer novel.… (mais)

Much better than I thought. Very enjoyable summer read. Relaxing ( )

Summer of 6️⃣9️⃣

I had to pause on the paradise series.
I have one book left. I’m saving it for December. I don’t want it to end.

This book I can tell will be a tear jerker. Very much like 2️⃣8️⃣ summers

Tiger the only son is in Vietnam. His mother Kate is a basket case over it. His sisters Kirby and Jessie are discovering themselves. And there’s a house full or darn secrets. And plenty of lesson are learned.
The book was great. I did cry. Not like 28 summers. But it required a tissue ( )

Elin Hilderbrand's worst! I have listened to and read many other books by the author but I did not like this one. The terrible thing is that she wrote it as a gift to her twin brother. They were born the day after the twins were born in this book.

What I did not like was most of it was like a soap opera of the rich and removed from the rest of this world. It was very depressing at the beginning and near the end it got better and then for me it fell of the cliff into ruin. Tiger, Blair's son who was sent to Vietnam seemed too goody-goody to me. I did not feel that he was affected enough by the deaths of his pals.

Blair really need to reread Betty Friedan's the Feminine Mystique. I remember staying up to three in the morning reading it and I felt that Blair had too much of a black and white response to it. Blair seemed very sheltered and not understanding the reality of women at that time. Her mother, Kate has a long time secret. That secret did not sit well with me, I am sure it would have for my mother and my grandmother!

That leaves Kirby and Jessie, Kate's daughters. I remember 1969, the shock of Teddy Kennedy going off the bridge and the drowning, Woodstock and Nixon. I really wanted to be at Woodstock, but it was difficult. I have memories of Flower Power, hippies, people taking LSD, the Nixon daughters, Martin Luther King's speeches and many more. It may be that year was bigger and more eventful than our own private lives.

I bought this audiobook because I usually like and love the author's books, As a woman who did not feel ready for college, I took off time to work at my father's office and later went to college. I was writing to a friend who was in VietNam. That year was so full of things happening that it seemed to be exploding. ( )

"The atmosphere of the country in the summer of 1969 was Tumultuous: Nixon was a new President, the war in Vietnam was raging right along with the protests against the war, civil rights and women's lib were hot topics, and Woodstock was planned as a tribute to the nation's youth, who wanted peace, love and rock-n-roll" Elin Hilderbrand

This was my first Hilderbrand book and I found it wonderful. The characters were easy to love and the true-to-the-times events made this book easy to read.

Meet the Levin/Foley family where every summer they board the ferry for Nantucket. But for them (and the world) the summer of '69 would bring growth, wisdom and a whole lotta love.

Blair (the eldest daughter) is pregnant with twins at home in Boston, Kirby (the wild child) has decided to take her chances on Martha's Vineyard, Tiger (the only Foley son) has been deployed to the front lines of Vietnam leaving Jessie (turning 13) alone with her distracted mom, Kate, and her intimidating grandmother. Nantucket is the last place she wants to be.

Written from each family members perspective, they are all on the verge of change. Kat and each of her daughters will take turns examining their views on life, revealing secrets, and building relationships. Here they will learn, people are people.

If you want a quick read that will keep you captured and leave you longing for a bit of your own youth, this will do the trick.

I am now a fan of Elin HIlderbrand and cannot wait to check out more of her books.

This book is for the three people who were with me in then early-morning hours of July 17, 1969.

My mother, Sally Hilderbrand, who went into labor four weeks before her due date.

My maternal grandmother, Ruth Huling, who "ran every red light" to get my mother to the Boston Hospital for Women.

My twin brother, Eric Hilderbrand, who i imagine turned to me and said, "Are you ready for this?"

It seemed the cruelest circumstance life had to offer---that someone she loved so profoundly could hurt her so badly and still that love did not die. If anything, it intensified.
Ten or twenty years from now, when she looks back on the summer of 1969, she will think: That was the summer I became real. My own real person.
