Description

Free Download 28 Summers Ebook. A "captivating and bittersweet" novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Summer of '69: Their secret love affair has lasted for decades—but this could be the summer that changes everything (People).

When Mallory Blessing's son, Link, receives deathbed instructions from his mother to call a number on a slip of paper in her desk drawer, he's not sure what to expect. But he certainly does not expect Jake McCloud to answer. It's the late spring of 2020 and Jake's wife, Ursula DeGournsey, is the frontrunner in the upcoming Presidential election.

There must be a mistake, Link thinks. How do Mallory and Jake know each other?

Flash back to the sweet summer of 1993: Mallory has just inherited a beachfront cottage on Nantucket from her aunt, and she agrees to host her brother's bachelor party. Cooper's friend from college, Jake McCloud, attends, and Jake and Mallory form a bond that will persevere—through marriage, children, and Ursula's stratospheric political rise—until Mallory learns she's dying.

Based on the classic film Same Time Next Year (which Mallory and Jake watch every summer), 28 Summers explores the agony and romance of a one-weekend-per-year affair and the dramatic ways this relationship complicates and enriches their lives, and the lives of the people they love.

  • Very disappointing

    Not a very good storyline. What made it worse is she felt the need to get political towards the end of the story. I do not purchase these books to read about your political views.
  • Didn’t want it to end

    Full disclosure: I love the movie Same Time Next Year, so I might have been predisposed to love this book. I appreciated how the author integrated the parallels to the classic movie into her work to a degree. I also liked how she provided some pop-cultural context each year. Though admittedly, some characters are richer than others, the author gets you vested in their lives. One is reminded that people are complicated, sometimes surprising. Above all else, life takes some interesting and unexpected turns. This is a great beach chair read. But wear sunscreen because it’s hard to put down.
  • Did Elin Hilderbrand really write this?

    I’m usually a huge fan. Hate the story(years of cheating) and all the parentheses with other people’s thoughts. A woman who won’t stand up for herself and says she’s worth more than a weekend for years is not a good heroine.
  • She does it again!
