NATIONAL BESTSELLER Friendship takes center stage in New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer's captivating, emotionally charged novel featuring all the tenderness and wit, drama and romance that readers have come to expect from this insightful, much-loved writer.   When they meet as girls on a beach in Nantucket, Maggie McIntyre and Emily Porter become fast friends--though Emily's well-heeled mother would prefer that she associate with the upscale daughters of bankers and statesmen rather than the child of a local seamstress. But the two lively, imaginative girls nevertheless spend many golden summers together building castles in the sand, creating magical worlds of their own, and forging grand plans for their future.   Even as Emily falls for Maggie's brother, Ben, and the young women's paths diverge, the duo remain close friends. Then the unthinkable happens: Handsome, charismatic, charming, and incredibly sexy Wall Street trader Cameron Chadwick upends both their lives and disrupts their friendship.   Struggling with the tough choices they must make and the secrets they must keep, the two young women discover that the road to love and fulfillment is full of bumps and twists. And while true love may be rare, Maggie and Emily find that friendship is even rarer--and more valuable still. Praise for Nantucket Sisters   "Thayer obviously knows her Nantucket, and the strong sense of place makes this the perfect escapist book for the summer, particularly for fans of Elin Hilderbrand." -- Booklist   "Thayer keeps readers on the edge of their seats with her dramatic story spanning the girls' childhood to adulthood. This wonderful beach read packs a punch." -- Library Journal   Praise for Nancy Thayer   Beachcombers   "Thayer's sense of place is powerful, and her words are hung together the way my grandmother used to tat lace." --Dorothea Benton Frank   "A charming and fun summer read . . . Readers will love this story of family and love." --The Plain Dealer   Summer Breeze   "Nancy Thayer is the queen of beach books. . . . All [these characters] are involved in life-changing choices, with all the heart-wrenching decisions such moments demand." --The Star-Ledger   "An entertaining and lively read that is perfect for summer reading indulgence." --Wichita Falls Times Record News   Island Girls   "A book to be savored and passed on to the good women in your life." --Susan Wiggs   "Full of emotion and just plain fun, this novel is delightful." --Romance Reviews Today

display_description "When Maggie and Emily meet as girls on the Nantucket beach, they are instant best friends--even though Emily's mother would much prefer she play with the daughters of senators and statesmen than a seamstress's kid like Maggie. But after many golden summers spent building sandcastles and sharing their dreams for the future, Emily and Maggie grow apart. In her twenties, beautiful and spirited Emily worries she'll never amount to more than the glittering wife of a successful husband, while hardworking redheaded Maggie scrimps and saves her pennies, wondering if she'll ever have the luxury of a passionate romance. It seems they have little in common...until Cameron Chadwick appears on the island. A wealthy Wall Street broker, Cameron takes moonlit walks on the dunes with Maggie and romances Emily in Manhattan with lavish nights on the town. When both women discover they're pregnant, it looks like the end of their already-distant friendship. But as Maggie and Emily struggle to decide what their lives will be, they realize more than ever before how very much they need a friend"--
