Barrett Bookstore’s Ladies of Summer will be held at Wee Burn Country Club, 141 Hollow Tree Ridge Road, Darien on Wednesday, June 21 at 6 p.m. It will feature three authors who have books coming out just in time for great summer reading. “This is the third year we have organized this evening,” says Sheila Daley, owner of Barrett Bookstore. “It is a lot of fun to hear the authors discuss the backstory of their new novels. The evening begins with wine and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace and a chance to meet the authors, followed by the authors’ presentation and a joint Q&A.
In Jamie Brenner’s “The Forever Summer,” 28-year-old Marin Bishop is at the top of her game. But an office fling in a moment of weakness costs Marin her career, as well as her upcoming marriage. And, when Rachel shows up claiming to be her half-sister, her life further unravels. Seeking escape, she joins Rachel to meet the grandmother she never knew she had at the B&B she owns in Provincetown. As the summer unfolds, it becomes clear that the truth of her half-sister is just the beginning of revelations that will change Marin's life forever.
