あらすじ・解説

A sweeping debut novel about the generations of a family that spends summers in a seaside enclave on Maine's rocky coastline, for fans of Elin Hilderbrand, Beatriz Williams, and Sarah Blake.

The year 1944: Maren Larsen is a blonde beauty from a small Minnesota farming town, determined to do her part to help the war effort - and to see the world beyond her family’s cornfields. As a cadet nurse at Walter Reed Medical Center, she’s swept off her feet by Dr. Oliver Demarest, a handsome Boston Brahmin whose family spends summers in an insular community on the rocky coast of Maine. 

The year 1970: As the nation grapples with the ongoing conflict in Vietnam, Oliver and Maren are grappling with their fiercely independent 17-year-old daughter, Annie, who has fallen for a young man they don’t approve of. Before the summer is over, a terrible tragedy will strike the Demarests - and in the aftermath, Annie vows never to return to Haven Point. 

The year 2008: Annie’s daughter, Skye, has arrived in Maine to help scatter her mother’s ashes. Maren knows that her granddaughter inherited Annie’s view of Haven Point: Despite the wild beauty and quaint customs, the regattas and clambakes and sing-alongs, she finds the place - and the people - snobbish and petty. But Maren also knows that Annie never told Skye the whole truth about what happened during that fateful summer. 

Over seven decades of a changing America, through wars and storms, betrayals and reconciliations, Virginia Hume's Haven Point explores what it means to belong to a place, and to a family, that holds as tightly to its traditions as it does its secrets.

Great story written and read

I heard about this book from Dana Perino while watching the Five and I bought it. I’m so glad - Dana was right - great story. I loved this book and will definitely tell others about it. Cassandra Campbell also did an excellent job of reading it; her voice and skill with the characters was perfect. It’s one of those books where I’m sad my read is over.

Lovely story.

Lovely story focusing on three strong women. Starts in 1940's Washington DC. Virginia adds lovely tidbits about the training of Nurses during WW2. She tells the story of a Grandmother, Mother, and daughter and their friends and family. Most of the story takes place in their summer home in Maine. You'll laugh and you'll cry.

My summer escape

Loved this book as it was exactly what I needed to escape. I’m not a big reader but always desired to be. I listened and was captivated by the imagery and enjoyed every word. Thank you, Virginia Hume for helping a momma out! ✨

It all made sense at the end..

Great summer read. I really enjoyed this family and their journey through life. At times I didn't agree with how some issues were handled but by the end of the book, I understood.

Overall, loved this book..

Loved it!

This story was enjoyable from start to finish. It was a reflection of the life of a family that was relatable to this reader. The characters were believable. It was well written. I did not have to check my morals at the door to read it and at the same time did not want to fall asleep due to boredom. I finished listening in 2 days time.

The narration was excellent. She added to the enjoyment of the book.

sweet beach read

sweet, simple, well written
not syrupy-cute like a Nicolas Sparks book, but innocent and satisfying in the same way.
