“Oh, I still smile when I think of my trip to Nantucket! Aside from the fact that it's a gorgeous island steeped in history, the people there were the finest of hosts. And the kids were welcoming and fun as well - so much so that I promised them I'd include Nantucket in my next novel; and I did! I look forward to visiting Nantucket!” Lynda Mullaly Hunt, 2014 NBF Visiting Author
