It is the summer of 1962 and Harv Sullivan has delivered his family to Hyannis Port's elite Honeysuckle Inn where each family member will embark on a month long journey revolving around Harv's unwavering American dream: to live like a Kennedy. Harv's son, Jack, soon discovers that the glossy Honeysuckle Inn brochure fails to capture what happens behind the scenes of the affluent men and women socializing at the clambakes and cocktail parties. And the lavish bedroom photos are erased clean of the darkness that even the wealthiest of families come to know. While the brochure's parting guest photo reads: See you next summer! beneath a throng of beaming faces, not every guest leaves the Honeysuckle with a smile, though a few will fight to leave with integrity. For Jack, the Honeysuckle Inn has been made bearable by a deep and unexpected friendship with a blithe Southern blonde, Isabelle Whitney. But his friendship with Isabelle is just the beginning of what Jack discovers that summer. Join him on the Cape, if only in your imagination, as you read a story that begins with people striving to make grand impressions, and ends with Jack's life having been impressed upon in the most meaningful ways, through friends turned family, through powerful first love, and through a startling loss.
