• I think Williams is writing the best historical fiction out there. It's lush with period detail but feels immediate.

    — Elin Hilderbrand

  • [Williams'] novels are packed with complex, daring, and intriguingly human women.

    — NPR.com

  • Williams’ particular gift as a writer is peeling back the pages of history to breathe life into the interior lives of women — how they lived, loved, and lost within the expectations and limitations of their time.

The legendary writing team returns with an unforgettable journey through the past and present of America’s iconic seaside resort.

“Three stories elegantly intertwine in this clever and stylish tale of murder and family lies from Williams, Willig, and White… This crackerjack novel offers three mysteries for the price of one.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
