INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Weiner, the undisputed boss of the beach read, is back with another stunner." --The New York Times "That Summer Is Your *IDEAL* Beach Read." --Cosmopolitan Named a Most Anticipated Book of Spring 2021 by Marie Claire, Bustle, Good Morning America, CNN, PopSugar, Good Housekeeping, Frolic, Country Living, and Working Mother From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Summer comes another deliciously twisty novel of intrigue, secrets, and the transformative power of female friendship. Daisy Shoemaker can't sleep. With a thriving cooking business, full schedule of volunteer work, and a beautiful home in the Philadelphia suburbs, she should be content. But her teenage daughter can be a handful, her husband can be distant, her work can feel trivial, and she has lots of acquaintances, but no real friends. Still, Daisy knows she's got it good. So why is she up all night? While Daisy tries to identify the root of her dissatisfaction, she's also receiving misdirected emails meant for a woman named Diana Starling, whose email address is just one punctuation mark away from her own. While Daisy's driving carpools, Diana is chairing meetings. While Daisy's making dinner, Diana's making plans to reorganize corporations. Diana's glamorous, sophisticated, single-lady life is miles away from Daisy's simpler existence. When an apology leads to an invitation, the two women meet and become friends. But, as they get closer, we learn that their connection was not completely accidental. Who IS this other woman, and what does she want with Daisy? From the manicured Main Line of Philadelphia to the wild landscape of the Outer Cape, written with Jennifer Weiner's signature wit and sharp observations, That Summer is a story about surviving our pasts, confronting our futures, and the sustaining bonds of friendship.… (més)

That Summer by Jennifer Weimer did not interest me at first and I almost did not finish reading. The book discloses strong women devoid of a college degree fighting for equality. A fifteen-year-old girl goes to Cape Cod as a mother’s helper. The summer ends with Diana, the mother’s helper, being raped by an entitled boy that she loved and trusted. Many years later, Diana tracks her tormenters and seeks revenge. Enter Daisy/Diana, Beatrice, and Hal as the ideal family. Daisy centers all her love and energy on home. Her teen-age daughter, Beatrice, rebels against all the comforts of an ideal life. I like the method that Weimer utilizes to show that education and corporate jobs are not the measure of success. A big contrast in masculine character rests with Michael and Hal. Is Hal capable of change? The attitude that men are entitled to whatever they want, and no excuse given presents itself when Vernon, Hal’s father, gives him a box of condoms when Hal goes off to Emlen. Very sad rendering of life. ( )

I read the Summer books two right in a row and it was a little confusing as the settings the same and some of the characters contended ot this book. Not the Authors writing, just my reading. Cape Cod, or to us MA people, The Cape, is such a beautiful place winter or summer and these books really spark an interest in getting back to see it again! The story plots are great also. ( )

This was a really good book that features two women—Daisy and Diana, and to a lesser degree, Daisy’s daughter Beatrice. Daisy has a cooking business and runs a busy household, caring for her husband and daughter. She meets Diana, who seems to have a very different lifestyle as a successful businesswoman. But it’s not immediately apparent how the two women are connected. It took me a little while to get into the flow of how the book is written. The chapters jump around in terms of who is narrating and also in terms of time period, spanning decades. I found myself lost at several points in the first half of the novel, not really getting where things were leading, even as I loved the setting (lovely descriptions of Cape Cod) as well as the characters. However once we get to the halfway point in the novel and Diana’s backstory is revealed as well as the way she and Daisy are connected, things fell into place, and I couldn’t put this down. I won’t say much more for the sake of spoilers, but I thought this was really well written.

I’m not even sure how to summarize or review this one. Super close to 5 stars, but it does take a while for the story to start coming together. The book focuses on three strong female characters- Daisy, Diana and Beatrice - who I hope we’ll see in future books. ( )

Every book I've read by Jennifer Weiner has delivered a thought provoking and deep narrative mixed with funny and charismatic characters. That Summer dives into some of these deep topics using two very lovable characters. The reader is able to feel as though they are in each character's shoes as the plot moves along.

Told from 2 views, the book moves along fast. This is one you'll read over a few days and it'll stay with you the rest of the week. ( )

WILD GEESE

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
    love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting----
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
            --Mary Oliver
It's just a girl in the world.
That's all that you'll let me be.
            --Gwen Stefani, "Just a Girl"
