Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Their secret love affair has lasted for decades--but this could be the summer that changes everything"-- Provided by publisher.
When Mallory Blessing's son, Link, receives deathbed instructions from his mother to call a number on a slip of paper in her desk drawer, he's not sure what to expect. But he certainly does not expect Jake McCloud to answer. It's the late spring of 2020 and Jake's wife, Ursula DeGournsey, is the frontrunner in the upcoming Presidential election. There must be a mistake, Link thinks. How do Mallory and Jake know each other? Flash back to the sweet summer of 1993: Mallory has just inherited a beachfront cottage on Nantucket from her aunt, and she agrees to host her brother's bachelor party. Cooper's friend from college, Jake McCloud, attends, and Jake and Mallory form a bond that will persevere -- through marriage, children, and Ursula's stratospheric political rise -- until Mallory learns she's dying. Based on the classic film Same Time Next Year (which Mallory and Jake watch every summer), 28 Summers explores the agony and romance of a one-weekend-per-year affair and the dramatic ways this relationship complicates and enriches their lives, and the lives of the people they love.

    In 2020, Mallory Blessing is dying, and she asks her son to call Jake McCloud, husband of Ursula DeGournsey, who may well become the next president of the United States. Flashback to 1993, when Mallory inherits a Nantucket beach house, and Jake attends her brother 's bachelor party. Jake and Mallory have a weekend fling that ends with them watching the movie, Same Time, Next Year. They decide to recreate the story: every Labor Day weekend, Jake will come to Nantucket, no matter what. So begins a long-term secret affair that continues "through the good, the bad, and the ugly." The novel's chapters cover each year, and each begins with a reminder of the hot topics of the time. Readers follow these characters not only while they are together, but also during their larger lives, including their jobs, friendships, marriages, children, and politics. This propulsive, if a tad long-winded, love story is filled with empathetically portrayed flawed characters. Prolific Hilderbrand (What Happens in Paradise, 2019) has crafted another endearing work of women's fiction sure to be a summer hit. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
