Vacationers_3D_LOW11The Vacationers has been included on many 2014 summer reading lists and has been mentioned on the CBC as a “story of forgiveness”. This novel tells the tale of the Post family – a long-married couple, their adult son and his partner from Miami, their daughter who will be going to university in the fall and the wife’s long-term gay friend and his partner – who travel together to Mallorca for a vacation. They have rented a house and vacation together, each with dealing with their own form of “baggage”.

The story unfolds one day at a time and the reader learns more about each character and their challenges. The story includes infidelity, new beginnings, love and understanding as each individual works through their issues. This book is another light, beach read, perfect for a summer day!
