Summary

One fateful summer. Four lives changed forever.

The perfect listen for fans of Little Fires Everywhere and We Were Liars.

For the Skinners, their lives divide into two parts: before that heady summer - of unsupervised youth and tragedy - and after. But mainly after.

The events of that childhood summer bound the siblings together fiercely, but the consequences would never be erased. For it’s the million little betrayals echoing through the years that threaten to fray their last fragile ties....

Spanning five decades, The Last Romantics is a sweeping, compelling portrait of one family - and every family. It is about betrayal, the responsibilities we bear and how we can lose - and sometimes rescue - the ones we love.

Beautiful recount of real love

I liked the flow through this book the story of hiding something precious and love lost.
Reinforced that very little in our lives is forever.
