Author Info
Elin Hilderbrand
Bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand is often called the "queen of the summer novel," because each of her books is set on or around Nantucket, a picturesque island located 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod. A native of Collegeville, Pennsylvania, she graduated from Johns Hopkins University in 1991 and subsequently earned a master's degree in creative writing from the University of Iowa. In 1994 she settled on Nantucket, which she had visited previously while on vacation. Her debut novel, THE BEACH CLUB (2000), was inspired, in part, by the hotel and resort her husband then managed there. Writing for Kirkus Reviews, one critic deemed it "a feisty, evanescent first novel, lively enough to keep a sunbather awake." Hilderbrand's subsequent novels have enjoyed equal popularity, and she sees little reason to change either the setting of her books or the location of her home. "Nantucket, for me and for many, is a place of healing. It's one of the few authentic places left in America," she has said. "I am not fully comfortable unless I am on Nantucket."

Editors Note Visiting Nantucket with their children during a summer vacation, three women befriend a local youth and share their struggles with such challenges as infidelity, the loss of a job under scandalous circumstance, and health problems. By the author of Nantucket Nights.
Annotation Part tearjerker part inspirational Mom-lit, BAREFOOT chronicles two sisters and a friend as they escape to a Nantucket beach house to heal after serious personal traumas. One woman has just undergone several failed in-vitro treatments, only to discover that that her husband is a serial cheater. Another has been diagnosed with cancer, and the third just lost her job after dallying with one of her students. Hildebrand promises lots of high drama and female bonding, and even manages to throw in a sexy local college boy. Fans of Hildebrand's sultry SUMMER AFFAIR are sure to gobble up this equally enthralling beach read.
