A Week at the Shore is the story of three sisters, a demanding, judgmental father, and a beautiful family home set high on a bluff above the Rhode Island coast. Twenty years have passed and the middle sister Mallory is taking her daughter Joy home to visit the house that she grew up in. She is immediately reminded why she fled to New York; there are family secrets, scandals, resentments and small town gossip. 
If you are looking for a summer escape, this is the book for you. I was immediately caught up in the Aldiss family story and dove in eagerly, letting the waves of the story wash up over me.
— From Lorna


In A Week at the Shore, New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky explores how lives and relationships are forever changed when three sisters reunite at their family Rhode Island beach house.

One phone call is all it takes to lure real estate photographer Mallory Aldiss back to her family Rhode Island beach home. It's been twenty years since she's been gone—running from the scandal that destroyed her parents' marriage, drove her and her two sisters apart, and crushed her relationship with her first love. But going home is fraught with emotional baggage—memories, mysteries and secrets abound.

Mal's thirteen-year-old daughter, Joy, has never been to the place where Mal's life was shaped and is desperate to go. Fatherless, she craves family and especially wants to spend time with the grandfather she barely knows.

In just seven watershed days on the Rhode Island coast three women will test the bonds of sisterhood, friendship and family, and discover the role that love and memory plays in defining their lives.
