Ruthie’s life is perfect…until summer comes along
On Memorial Day weekend in a Long Island seaside town, art museum director Ruthie, her still-adored ex-husband, Mike, and their sullen, 15-year-old daughter, Jem, pack up their household in preparation for the arrival of a wealthy renter. They can only afford to keep their beautiful house by leasing it out during the best part of the year.
Soon Ruthie’s relationship with Mike is in danger, and the job she loves is under siege from rich women who want to use it for social climbing. An old flame who betrayed her is back, causing Ruthie to re-evaluate their romance. And Jem may be involved in a destructive relationship of her own.
