Summary:

A novel about a life-changing summer along the beaches of Martha's Vineyard. Oak Bluffs is the most exclusive black beach community in the country, a mecca for the cráeme de la cráeme of black society. Thirty years ago, Amelia Vaux Tanner and her husband built a house high on the bluffs, a cottage they named Chateau Laveau. "Ama's" three gifted "goddaughters:" Esperanza "Perry" Soto, an Afro-Latina lawyer; Olivia Jones, a Wall Street analyst; and Billie Hayden, a marine biologist. Growing up, the three came together each summer at Chateau Laveau. As adults, the cottage is a place they go to slow down from their hectic lives, share private time with Ama, and enjoy the beauty of Oak Bluffs. This summer on the Bluffs, however, will be different: Ama, now nearing seventy-one, is moving to the south of France to reunite with her college sweetheart. She has invited Perry, Olivia, and Billy to spend one last golden summer together with her the way they did when they were kids. And when fall comes, she is going to give the house to one of them. Each of the women wants the house; each is grappling with a secret she fears will hurt her chances. By the end of summer, these three found sisters will discover they aren't the only ones with something to hide.
