  • Very interesting read!

    I received a free electronic ARC of this debut novel from Netgalley, Christina Clancy, and St. Martin's Press. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this novel of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. Ms. Clancy has brought us a tight tale with well-rounded, personable protagonists facing realistic troubles handled in age-appropriate ways, the family who despite their differences cannot help but recognize the love that binds them together. I enjoyed the way the old family home in Wellfleet, Cape Cod, Massachusetts ties together all of the elements of this tale. The Wisconsin Gordon family, current generation Madison educators, and their children spend every summer in Wellfleet in this the third and fourth generations of the Gordon family. Ed and Connie with teen daughters Ann and Poppy and their recently adopted orphaned schoolmate Michael hit the road as soon as summer vacations begin, and spend the summer on the cape, lovingly patching up the beloved 200-year-old home they all hold dear and living in the sand and water as much as possible. The area of Wellfleet and Cape Cod are clearly detailed and enjoyably pictured. Our story covers 1999 through 2015, as we watch the children grow up and clearly see the influences of the old family home on their life's decisions. We watch as the Gordon family ushers in the fifth generation and introduces them to sunny Wellfleet summers. The Second Home was an interesting and engrossing read. I am pleased to add new author Christina Clancy to my list of authors to watch for and to recommend her work to friends and family.

    Thanks for your feedback!
