Descripción

It's a hot August Saturday on Nantucket Island. Over the course of the next 24 hours, two lives will be transformed forever.

Marguerite Beale, former chef of culinary hot spot Les Parapluies, has been out of the public eye for over a decade. This all changes with a phone call from Marguerite's goddaughter, Renata Knox. Marguerite has not seen Renata since the death of Renata's mother, Candace Harris Knox, fourteen years earlier. And now that Renata is on Nantucket visiting the family of her new fiancé, she takes the opportunity, against her father's wishes, to contact Marguerite in hopes of learning the story of her mother's life—and death. But the events of the day spiral hopelessly out of control for both women, and nothing ends up as planned.

Welcome to The Love Season—a riveting story that takes place in one day and spans decades; a story that embraces the charming, pristine island of Nantucket, as well as Manhattan, Paris and Morocco. Elin Hilderbrand's most ambitious novel to date chronicles the famous couplings of real lives: love and friendship, food and wine, deception and betrayal—and forgiveness and healing.

A Macmillan Audio production.

    Marguerite Beale receives a phone call from her goddaughter, Renata Knox that she is on Nantucket and coming to visit. Renata has been forbidden to see Marguerite by her father for her whole life. Renata’s father has always loved her too much and felt too responsible for her and Renata feels as though he is weighing her down. Renata’s mother, Candace died when she was only three years old. Marguerite was Candace’s best friend. Renata, recently engaged is on the island to visit her fiancé, Cade’s parents. She has overlooked the obvious objections that it was too soon and she was too young to get married, but can she continue to overlook these things?Marguerite has pretty much been the island recluse for the last fourteen years. She used to be a famous chef and have a very popular restaurant, but after Candace’s death, Marguerite punished herself by becoming a hermit. When Renata calls, old feelings rise to the surface for Marguerite. “There was a twinge on Marguerite’s heart, like someone tugging on the corner of a blanket, threatening to throw back the covers and expose it all.” Marguerite begins to feel all the things she has forbidden herself to feel for the past fourteen years. There is a lot of drama on the island and secrets are revealed one by one. This is your typical juicy, summer read from one of my favorite author’s, Elin Hilderbrand.

    Just who is Marguerite Beale, one time chef of once hot Les Parapluies, a trendy Nantucket restaurant? This novel tells us that and more. The chef has kept herself in her house on the island, until her godchild, Renata, calls to announce that, while on the island meeting her newly affianced parents, she wants to visit Marguerite (or Daisy, as she is known by familiars) to find out anything she can about her mother, who died when she was about five. This is the story of Renata’s day on the island and how she comes to realize that her life is not really what she thought it was and of Daisy, who spends the day remembering her ties with Renata’s mother. Both are in for a whirlwind, turning and twisting day, where nothing is as it seems and nothing turns out as it was supposed to. The author has provided an excellent perspective on the lives of these two women as well as on island life for the fiancé’s rich and well-connected family. The short time span of this novel distinguish it from other of the author’s novels, but the overall themes of love, friendship, family ring true as in her other novels. This novel is a bit deeper because it probes many areas where novels such as his one tend to gloss over. The shortened timeframe make characterization, description of the then and now and memories more important, and the author has risen to this. This novel provides an excellent look into the life of a small group of people and their lives spanning a number of years. I found it interesting the way the author managed to seamlessly cross the years from present to past. This is a good novel for the reader who is interested in love and all its ins and outs.

    This is the story of Marguerite, a woman who is living alone on Nantucket after a mental breakdown some years before. The book begins on an optimistic note, re-introducing the people from her past into her life; but toward the end, it takes a chilling turn. I thought this novel was well-written, but it was definitely not a beach read and not quite what you'd expect from Elin Hilderbrand.
