Fripp Island, South Carolina, is the perfect destination for the wealthy Daly family: Lisa, Scott, and their two girls. For Lisas childhood friend Poppy Ford, however, the resort island is a world away from what she and her family are used to. Everyone brings secrets to the island, distorting what should be a convivial, relaxing summer on the beach. Lisa sees danger everywherethe local handyman cant be allowed near the children, and Lisa suspects Scott is fixated on something, or someone, else. Poppy watches over her husband, John, and his routines with a sharp eye. For the children, its a summer of change: Ryan Ford prepares for college in the fall, Rae Daly seethes on the brink of adulthood, and the two youngest, Kimmy Daly and Alex Ford, are exposed to new ideas and different ways of life as they forge a friendship of their own. The ones who return from this vacation will spend the rest of their lives trying to process what they witnessed, the tipping points, moments of violence and tenderness, and the memory of whom they left behind.
