If you plan on heading to the beach or would like to curl up with a book on a rainy day during your vacation, The Castaways by Elin Hilderbrand is an engaging and quick read that takes place on Nantucket. While there are plenty of plot twists, flash backs, and eight characters to follow through the novel, you get a very good picture of the personalities involved and their obvious and not so obvious relationships. You find out immediately that two of the characters are not actively in the story but they are an integral part of the life of the remaining six. Each chapter of the book continues the story of one of the characters and you really develop a picture who these people are and why they live in Nantucket. If you want to move on to other books by Ms. Hilderbrand, just pick up Nantucket Nights, Summer People: A Novel, or The Beach Club.
