Book Giveaway: The Castaways By Elin Hilderbrand

I'm authorized to give away 3 copies. Rules for entry in the drawing are below. Please read them carefully.

The Castaways

By Elin Hilderbrand
(c) 2009
Back Bay Books

Greg and Tess MacAvoy are one of four prominent Nantucket couples who count each other as best friends. As pillars of their close-knit community, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers are important to their friends and neighbors, and especially to each other. But just before the beginning of another idyllic summer, Greg and Tess are killed when their boat capsizes during an anniversary sail. As the warm weather approaches and the island mourns their loss, nothing can prepare the MacAvoy's closest friends for what will be revealed.

Once again, Hilderbrand masterfully weaves an intense tale of love and loyalty set against the backdrop of endless summer island life.

I have not read any of Elin Hilderbrand's books; actually hadn't heard of her until I started seeing wonderful reviews for THIS book! It's on my "to buy" list, but if I win it, that makes it even better!
