In 1931, All the boys were crazy for Budgie Byrne. Budgie was the life of the party and knew how to get what she wanted by just batting her eyelashes. Lily Dane was nothing like Budgie, but the two were the best of friends since forever. Lily was used to all the attention being on Budgie, until good looking Nick Greenwald had eyes only for Lily.




Fast forward to the summer of 1938 in Seaview, RI. Lily is summering with her 6 year old sister, mother and aunt when Mr. and Mrs. Nick and Budgie Greenwald walk back into Lily's life. Budgie wants to pick up their friendship like she hadn't just married Lily's former fiance. Lily being her sweet self goes right back to being Budgie's faithful friend. Soon Budgie's old self returns with wild parties, but she is determined to help Lily find love, too. 




As summer progresses, it's undeniable that the feelings between Nick and Lily are still very present. Before Lily can move on she needs to get to the truth behind what happened between the two of them years ago, unexpected truths emerge changing everything for the two! Just as the truth is revealed a cataclysmic hurricane falls on their beautiful summer town, bringing with it lifetime changes.




This is a beach read you need to get your hands on! I loved how the story moves forward in 1931 in one chapter and in the next chapter 1938 moves forward, so you know something has happened but you don't know what or you think you kinda do. So good! I mean you fall in love with Nick and Lily in the 1931 storyline. You can't really imagine how things could pull them apart, but you need to know! And you don't know whose fault it was that they are no longer together. I don't want to say to much more about the story, because I don't want to ruin it at all. I wish I was part of a book club cause I would love to chat about A HUNDRED SUMMERS!




I seriously loved this book! A HUNDRED SUMMERS has it all: sex, love, lies, betrayal, cover-up! If you are looking to buy a book for the beach this is the one! Highly recommend!

    Just finished A Hundred Summers and this is the best book I have

    Just finished A Hundred Summers and this is the best book I have read this year. It involves romance, love, families, friends and life's unexpected disappointments as well as life's unexpected surprises. I have ordered Overseas because I like the author's writing style and talent for keeping me turning the pages and reading in the middle of the night, just because I have to see what is next for Lily. Found this book browsing B&N, noticed right away the cover and the title. The kind of story that makes me get to The End and spend more time still thinking of the characters and their story. A must read!!!!!

    I have been a fan of Beatriz Williams since reading "Overseas" but I liked “A Hundred Summers” the best so far. It perfectly captured the 1930’s for me. What a time that must have been. The world was in riot and Seaview had Lily.

    Great summer read.

    This book is a quick, great summer read. Just enough history, mixed with romance - a tale of friendship, family, romance - and how they can all get complicated very quickly.
