What was supposed to be an idyllic wedding leads to an unexpected journey of self-discovery . . .
When Lillo Gray pulls up to Kennebunkport’s most exclusive hotel wearing a borrowed dress and driving a borrowed VW van, she knows she’s made a big mistake. She’s not even sure why Jessica Parker invited her to her posh wedding. They haven’t seen each other since they were unhappy fourteen-year-olds at fat camp. And now they’re from two completely different worlds. There’s no way Lillo fits in the rarefied circles Jess travels in.
Jess isn’t even sure she’s ready to go through with this wedding. But her two best friends, Allie and Diana, are powerless to stop it. Until Lillo arrives and they discover Jess’s fiancé philandering in the hotel parking lot. There’s only one thing to do.
They all pile into Lillo’s old van and head up the coast to Lighthouse Beach. But what begins as a flight from a wedding soon becomes a journey of self-discovery for them all: Jess, bullied all her life and willing to sell her future to a man who doesn’t love her; Allie, a young widow who refuses to accept love; Diana, too intent on business to embrace life; and Lillo with a secret too painful to bear.
None of them will be able to resist the healing power of Lighthouse Beach.
