Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Elkins family runs a small, respectable hotel in a bayside community near Bristol. Donald, Ruth, and their daughters, Charlotte, Josie, and Milly, live in the hotel along with Clover, Donald's mother. The Retreat has several permanent guests and turns a modest profit, and the family enjoys a certain status. Clover, although getting on in years, is cheerfully eccentric. The girls squabble, but everything's right as rain until Clover dies in her sleep after taking sick from one of her midnight walks along the bay in her nightclothes. Theories abound: Was she mad? Was she a witch? Just as the family adjusts to life without her, and the girls get back to their teenage worries, disaster strikes again in the form of a flood that makes hotel uninhabitable. There's no insurance, and the family faces the real possibility of losing their status, home, and livelihood. Popular novelist Summers offers a finely detailed and involving tale of one engaging family's personalities and predicaments. Maria Hatton
