From the Back Cover
Four generations of women and one summer filled with love, family, secrets, and sisterhood. . . .
The Whitaker family’s Connecticut mansion, Muses by the Sea, has always been a haven for artists, creativity—and the occasional scandal. Now, after being estranged for years, four generations of Whitaker women ﬁnd themselves once again at the Muses.
Leo, the Whitaker matriarch, lives in the rambling mansion crammed with artwork and junk. She plans to stay there until she joins her husband, Wes, on the knoll overlooking the cove. Her sister-in-law, Fae, the town eccentric, is desperate to keep a secret she has been hiding for years.
Jillian, a jet-setting actress, has run out of men to support her. She thinks selling the Muses will not only bring her the funds to get herself back on top, but also make life easier for her mother, Leo, and Fae by moving them into assisted living.
Issy, Jillian’s daughter, has a successful life as a museum exhibit designer that takes her around the world. But the Muses and her grandmother are the only family she’s known, and when her sister leaves her own children with Leo, Issy knows she has to step in to help.
Steph, only twelve-years-old, desperately needs someone to ignite her imagination. What she begins to discover at the Muses could change the course of her future.
Despite storms and moonlight dancing, diva attacks and catfights, trips to the beach and flights of fancy, these four generations of erratic, dramatic women may just find a way to save the Muses and reunite their family.
