Summer of '69 by Elin Hilderbrand Summary

Four siblings experience the drama, intrigue, and upheaval of the '60s summer when everything changed in Elin Hilderbrand's #1 New York Times bestselling historical novel. Welcome to the most tumultuous summer of the twentieth century. It's 1969, and for the Levin family, the times they are a-changing. Every year the children have looked forward to spending the summer at their grandmother's historic home in downtown Nantucket. But like so much else in America, nothing is the same: Blair, the oldest sister, is marooned in Boston, pregnant with twins and unable to travel. Middle sister Kirby, caught up in the thrilling vortex of civil rights protests and determined to be independent, takes a summer job on Martha's Vineyard. Only-son Tiger is an infantry soldier, recently deployed to Vietnam. And thirteen-year-old Jessie suddenly feels like an only child, marooned in the house with her out-of-touch grandmother and her worried mother, while each of them hides a troubling secret. As the summer heats up, Ted Kennedy sinks a car in Chappaquiddick, man flies to the moon, and Jessie and her family experience their own dramatic upheavals along with the rest of the country. In her first historical novel, rich with the details of an era that shaped both a nation and an island thirty miles out to sea, Elin Hilderbrand once again earns her title as queen of the summer novel.

Summer of '69 by Todd Strasser Summary

Drawing from his teenage years, Todd Strasser's novel revisits a tumultuous era and takes readers on a psychedelically tinged trip of a lifetime. With his girlfriend, Robin, away in Canada, eighteen-year-old Lucas Baker's only plans for the summer are to mellow out with his friends, smoke weed, drop a tab or two, and head out in his microbus for a three-day happening called the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. But life veers dramatically off track when he suddenly finds himself in danger of being drafted and sent to fight in Vietnam. If that isn't heavy enough, there's also the free-loving (and undeniably alluring) Tinsley, who seems determined to test Lucas's resolve to stay faithful to Robin; a frighteningly bad trip at a Led Zeppelin concert; a run-in with an angry motorcycle gang; parents who appear headed for a divorce; and a friend on the front lines in 'Nam who's in mortal danger of not making it back. As the pressures grow, it's not long before Lucas finds himself knocked so far down, it's starting to look like up to him. When tuning in, turning on, and dropping out is no longer enough, what else is there?

A Summer in '69 by Dee Davidson Dosch Summary

A Summer in '69 is the true story of three college coeds who took a summer vacation in Europe and discovered more than just a travelogue. --- Dee Davidson and two of her girlfriends worked and hitchhiked their way through Western Europe in 1969. She kept a diary of their adventures and wrote about how three naive young women from the Midwest tried to take the world by storm. Their inauspicious start as maids in West Germany and waitresses in Switzerland, led them to travels in a dozen countries that were often fun, educational, exciting and sometimes "unfortunate." --- Ultimately, this coming-of-age memoir is also a wonderful journey for three young women that is as unforgettable for them as it will be for readers. "Our limited budgets never got in the way of our extravagant appetites for seeing and doing as much as we could possibly do in the short amount of time we had."

La rumeur by Elin Hilderbrand Summary

Madeline King et Grace Pancik sont meilleures amies et tout le monde sur Nantucket leur envie leur couple parfait, leurs beaux enfants, leurs soirées du samedi tous les quatre avec leurs maris dévoués. Mais cet été-là, quelque chose a changé et, s'il y a bien une chose que Nantucket aime encore plus que les cocktails sur la plage, c'est une bonne rumeur. Et la rumeur court... ... que Madeline, romancière, n'arrive plus à écrire. Son éditeur s'impatiente, les factures s'accumulent et l'angoisse de la page blanche la conduit à prendre une très mauvaise décision. ... que Grace, occupée à transformer son jardin en véritable paradis, collabore d'un peu trop près avec son séduisant paysagiste. ... que le mari de Grace, l'agent immobilier Eddie Pancik à qui tout réussit, s'est lancé dans une activité plutôt singulière. ... que l'idylle entre le fils de Madeline, Brick, et la fille de Grace, Allegra, bat de l'aile, et que le désastre menace. Alors que la rumeur enfle et que leur bonheur est menacé, Madeline et Grace tentent de démentir ; mais la vérité est peut-être encore plus sombre qu'elles ne le pensaient.

L'été sauvage by Elin Hilderbrand Summary

Birdie Cousins s’est jetée à corps perdu dans les préparatifs du fastueux mariage de sa fille Chess, depuis la piste de danse flottant sur l’étang de sa résidence du Connecticut à la couleur des serviettes en papier. Comme toute mère, elle doit essuyer des tempêtes d’excitation et de chaos, de larmes et de joie. Mais Birdie, qui se targue de pouvoir faire face à n’importe quelle éventualité, n’aurait jamais pu prévoir le coup de fil nocturne de Chess lui annonçant brutalement la rupture de ses fiançailles. Ce n’est que le premier indice de ce qui sera un été de bouleversements et de révélations. Bien vite, les nouvelles empirent, précipitant Chess dans une spirale de désespoir. Birdie vole au secours de sa fille aînée, avec l’aide de sa cadette, Tate, et de sa propre sœur, India. Bientôt, les quatre femmes prennent la direction de Tuckernuck, une magnifique île au large de Nantucket. Un lieu sans téléphone, télévision ni supérette, un lieu sans distraction aucune, où fuir leurs problèmes. Mais lorsque sœurs, filles, ex-amants et vieux secrets se donnent rendez-vous sur une île coupée de tout, ce qui s’annonçait comme une retraite paisible prend une toute autre dimension. Avant la fin de l’été, des vérités tragiques seront révélées, d’anciennes amours renouées et de nouvelles idylles auront émergé. Traduit de l’anglais par Mathilde Bouhon

Woodstock by Wilco Robertson Summary

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock festival with this in-depth retelling of those famous three days of peace, love, and music—overflowing with images and behind-the-scenes information, you'll be fully immersed in the '60s vibe. Half a million fans, described as a "swarm of hippies," flowed non-stop into Yasgur's Farm, Bethel, New York, over the weekend of August 15–18, 1969, to watch 32 legendary music acts, including Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix. With all the roads around Bethel gridlocked, helicopters ferried in performers who couldn't reach the venue any other way. Rolling Stone magazine said the Woodstock festival was a moment that changed history, but some festival-goers, soaked by rain, wallowing in muddy fields, and without enough bathroom facilities, described it as total chaos. Electrical problems and ankle-deep water on stage caused havoc with the schedule and a thunderstorm suspended performances on Sunday afternoon. So it was 9 a.m. on Monday morning by the time the star of the show, Jimi Hendrix, appeared, and many people were already heading home. Despite all the criticism, the festival is regarded as a defining moment of the 1960s. Some superlative musicians gave unsurpassed performances captured forever in the Woodstock movie. Many performed songs expressing opposition to the Vietnam War—a sentiment shared by the vast majority of the audience—and, 50 years later, the term "Woodstock Generation" is still used to describe the anti-war youth counterculture of the 1960s.

A nous by Elin Hilderbrand Summary

Trois rivales. Une même maison. La porte ouverte à toutes les jalousies... Laurel Thorpe, Belinda Rowe et Scarlett Oliver n'ont que deux choses en commun : l'amour pour un homme qu'elles ont toutes les trois épousé, Deacon Thorpe (un chef célèbre doté d'un appétit insatiable pour la vie) et la profonde antipathie qu'elles se témoignent mutuellement. Trois femmes uniques et indépendantes, mais radicalement différentes. Laurel : la première petite amie de Deacon, rencontrée au lycée, une assistante sociale à la beauté naturelle. Belinda : une actrice hollywoodienne capricieuse et difficile à vivre. Scarlett : une beauté du sud vivant des rentes de sa famille et de son sex appeal. Au fil des années, elles ont adopté la meilleure stratégie qui soit : s'éviter à tout prix. Mais cet équilibre fragile menace de s'effondrer quand Deacon trouve la mort dans son endroit préféré au monde : une vétuste villa de vacances de Nantucket. Le dernier souhait de Deacon est que sa famille recomposée se réunisse sur son île adorée pour lui faire ses adieux. À contrecœur, Laurel, Belinda et Scarlett acceptent. Et les voilà contraintes de partager le même toit avec les enfants de Deacon et son meilleur ami, dans cette villa où chacune a ses souvenirs.Avant la fin du weekend, il y aura suffisamment d'accusations, de mensonges, de larmes et de drames pour transformer ces trois femmes qui ont épousé le même homme en ennemies jurées. Alors que les membres de cette famille improbable font leurs adieux à l'homme qui les a réunis – pour le meilleur et pour le pire – seront-ils capables d'oublier leurs différences le temps d'un toast en l'honneur de Deacon ?

L'été de la deuxième chance by Elin Hilderbrand Summary

Fuir à Nantucket était exactement ce dont Meredith Delinn Martin avait besoin. Son existence parfaite s’était brutalement brisée quand le monde avait découvert que son mari, Freddy Delinn, avait détourné plusieurs milliards de dollars à ses riches investisseurs. Traquée par la presse, vilipendée par la société, séparée de ses fils, Meredith n’avait personne vers qui se tourner, excepté son amie de toujours, Constance Flute. Malgré leur brouille récente, Connie accepta de recueillir Meredith dans sa maison de Nantucket, au bord de l’océan. Ce qui était au départ une retraite forcée s’avéra bientôt pour les deux femmes l’été de la deuxième chance. Bien décidées à se battre contre les revers de l’existence, elles virent leur petit univers bouleversé par un séduisant veuf, natif de l’île, et par un fantôme du passé de Meredith, revenu troubler son âme. Peu à peu, les deux femmes comprirent que même si leur cœur était brisé, il battait toujours... Traduit de l’anglais par Carole Delporte
