In Elin Hilderbrand’s moving novel, three women find themselves with three very different problems at a summerhouse in Nantucket. Brenda has lost her prestigious job as a literature professor thanks to a passionate affair with one of her students. Her sister, Vicki, a mother of two, has been diagnosed with cancer. Their friend Melanie, after seven failed in-vitro attempts, has found out she’s finally pregnant—and that her husband is having an affair. But they all have two things in common: they yearn to set their lives back on track, and one 22-year-old Nantucket native named Josh is going to help them.
Home from college for the summer, Josh Flynn is dealing with an unstable ex-girlfriend and a summer job he hates. But when he meets up with the women, he quickly becomes indispensable to them, acting as babysitter, handyman, companion, and eventually even lover to one. Soon they can’t imagine their lives without him, nor he them. But his greatest gift may be inspiring them to move forward—even if their futures don’t include him. Poignant and bittersweet, Barefoot explores the power and unpredictability of love.
