The New York Times bestselling novel.

Rhode Island, 1938. A sweltering summer of secrets, passion and betrayal...

`I wish I could remember more. I wish I had taken down every detail, because I didn't see him again until the summer of 1938; the summer the hurricane came and washed the world away...'

Lily Dane has returned to the exclusive enclave of Seaview, Rhode Island, hoping for an escape from the city and from her heartbreak. What she gets instead is the pain of facing newlyweds Budgie and Nick Greenwald - her former best friend and former fiance.

During lazy days and gin-soaked nights, Lily is drawn back under Budgie's glamorous and enticing influence, and the truth behind Budgie and Nick's betrayal of Lily begins to emerge. And as the spectre of war in Europe looms, a storm threatens to destroy everything...
