Publisher's Summary

From the USA Today best-selling author of Two Truths and a Lie and The Islanders, a delicious summer listen set in midcoast Maine, tackling family secrets, marriage, motherhood, and privilege. 

Louisa has come to her parents’ house in Maine this summer with all three of her kids, a barely-written book, and a trunkful of resentment. Left behind in Brooklyn is her husband, who has promised that after this final round of fundraising at his startup he will once again pick up his share of the household responsibilities. Louisa is hoping that the crisp breeze off Penobscot Bay will blow away the irritation she is feeling with her life choices and replace it with enthusiasm for both her family and her work. 

But all isn’t well in Maine. Louisa’s father, a retired judge and pillar of the community, is suffering from Alzheimer’s. Louisa’s mother is alternately pretending everything is fine and not pretending at all. And one of Louisa’s children happens upon a very confusing and heartfelt letter referring to something Louisa doesn’t think her father could possibly have done.

Louisa’s not the only one searching for something in Maine this summer. Kristie took the Greyhound bus from Pennsylvania with one small suitcase, $761, and a lot of baggage. She’s got a past she’s trying to outrun, a secret she’s trying to unpack, and a new boyfriend who’s so impossibly kind she can’t figure out what she did to deserve him. But she can’t keep her various lives from colliding forever.

As June turns to July turns to August, secrets will be unearthed, betrayals will come to light, and both Louisa and Kristie will ask themselves what they are owed and what they owe others. A delicious summer listen and an exploration of family, responsibility, ambition and loss, Vacationland is Meg Mitchell Moore at her best.

Overall a a good book!

While listening to this book I envisioned a large home overlooking the Main coast and fell in love with this place. Full of memorial and family along with some surprises as well. The book moved along too slowly in the beginning but luckily it picked up and turned out to be a solid read.

Not worth the credit

Sappy, poorly edited, treacle. Narrator made the women all whine and the author made them brats. Ugh.
