In the small inlaid wooden box, Matt's mother had kept all his childhood memories. Amongst them are many photos of Matt as a child, growing up. But something about the photos has always puzzled Matt - was that really him? Why did he not remember those clothes? The toys? And where, in the photos, was his sister Imogen? He has a strange unresolved feeling that there is something missing in his life. Imogen is living with her husband, a country vet, and their gorgeous baby in a rented cottage. Since her childhood she has loved the Summer House, a charming folly in the grounds of her oldest friends' beautiful and ancient house on Exmoor, and now they have the chance of buying.

The village of Markušovce is a major treasury of cultural monuments in Spiš and its history is linked to the Máriássy family. According to the first written mention from 1280, Markušovce arose as a border and guarding village. Its landmark is the medieval castle (fortified mansion ) and the Church of Saint Michael. An important monument in the village is the originally Renaissance Máriássy manor house from 1643, built by Francis Máriássy III. The building’s rococo style is from the years 1770 to 1775. Currently, the building is managed by the Spiš Museum in Spišská Nová Ves and it shelters the Exhibition of Historical Furniture. It displays the development of furniture art from the Renaissance to the first half of the 20th century, complemented by applied art objects. The surroundings of the manor house are adapted as a French park. The Dardanely summer house is located on its highest terrace, an important Rococo architecture monument in Slovakia. Wolfgang (Farkas) Máriássy permitted it to be built in the last third of the 18th century for social and ceremonial reasons. Currently, there is an exhibition of keyboard instruments, with a unique collection of small organs - positives, pianos, clavichords and table pianos of Slovak provenance. The hammerklavier is an extraordinary instrument, made ​​by Carl (Károly) Schmidt, the manufacturer from Bratislava, richly decorated with inlays of mother of pearl, ivory and metal. He made it in 1846 for Count Mariássy. The community hall upstairs stands out due to the Greek mythology fresco. It’s used as an exhibition area and a concert hall, hosting classical music performances. Mostly Christmas concerts are a tradition here. The Dardanely summer house is also a center for a music history department, along with all the museum’s professional activities. The Spiš Museum still maintains contact with Heidi Máriássy, who lives in Stockholm, and the family living in Košice.

When Flossy Merrill summons her children to the beloved family beach house to celebrate their father’s eightieth birthday, both cherished memories and long-kept secrets come to light in this charming and lyrical novel from the author of The Lake Season and Mystic Summer. Flossy Merrill has managed to—somewhat begrudgingly—gather her three ungrateful grown children from their dysfunctional lives for a summer reunion at the family’s Rhode Island beach house. Clementine, her youngest child and a young mother of two small children, has caused Flossy the most worry after enduring a tragically life-altering year. But Samuel and his partner Evan are not far behind in their ability to alarm: their prospective adoption search has just taken a heart-wrenching turn. Only Paige, the eldest of the headstrong Merrill clan, is her usual self: arriving precisely on time with her well-adapted teens. Little does her family know that she, too, is facing personal struggles of her own. No matter. With her family finally congregated under one seaside roof, Flossy is determined to steer her family back on course even as she prepares to reveal the fate of the summer house that everyone has thus far taken for granted: she’s selling it. The Merrill children are both shocked and outraged and each returns to memories of their childhoods at their once beloved summer house—the house where they have not only grown up, but from which they have grown away. With each lost in their respective heartaches, Clementine, Samuel, and Paige will be forced to reconsider what really matters before they all say goodbye to a house that not only defined their summers, but, ultimately, the ways in which they define themselves. Featuring McKinnon’s “sharp and evocative” (Kirkus Reviews) voice, this warm-hearted novel is perfect for fans of Elin Hilderbrand and Mary Alice Monroe.

One hot New York City summer in the 1970s, the lives of three very different people - each uncomfortable with their surrounds and struggling to find a place where they can feel a sense of belonging - are forever changed. Raymond, an overly cerebral 17 year old, lives in the Bronx with his increasingly estranged parents. He's decided that the time has come for him to fall in love even if he is soure why or with which gender and grapples with the conflicting directions in which he is pulled by his desires and fears. As his parents become increasingly estranged, his mother leaves for a trip to Israel leaving Raymond and his father housemates in an apartment in which neither feels at home. Jerome, one of the legion of unrecognized poets marginally employed as a delivery man Seven Wonders Gourmet Foods, cannot rid himself of his obsession for the woman he loved and lived with - until she threw him out when he uncovered her secret past. His mentor - and sole friend - is the aging, erudite Maurice Rose, who - like Jerome - is about to thrown out of his home. Lester, Raymond's maternal uncle, is the middle aged owner of Seven Wonders Gourmet Foods and an unsuccessful suburbanite living on the edges of New York City. In a family and area were success and status are everything, he must confront the miseries of his failing business, a tense home life, and a persistent obscene caller who knows a bit too much about his wife. Drawn together by chance, circumstance, and mysterious woman with a secret in her past, their lives' intersect, collide, pull apart, and irreversibly change.
