The cover of A Hundred Summers immediately reminded me of Tigers in Red Weather a book that both made me cringe and feverishly read to the end The descriptions sounded relatively similar too and so I was in no particular hurry to get started on this one After having it in my purse for a few days I finally picked it up on the subway ride home and was transfixed For the first time in a long time I was savouring the taste of the words on my tongue rather than racing to the finish line There s something about Beatriz Williams writing that makes you want to fold yourself into it and never come outLily Dane our narrator uncovers the sordid story of her past and present In 1931 she was still in college best friends with Budgie Byrne a heartbreakingly sexy socialite and engaged to Nick Greenwald a Jew Somewhere between 1932 and 1938 Nick and Budgie were married and Lily found herself trying to swim out of the throes of shock and depression Just as she thinks she s accepting of the turns her life has taken Nick and Budgie show up to summer with her in Seaview Rhode Island As the great hurricane of 1938 percolates in the distance Lily s entire foundation starts to unravel She comes closer to learning the truth behind the Greenwald s marriage as well as shameful family secrets that were meant to stay hiddenLily flips back and forth between 19311932 and the present 1938 I have never read a book so perfectly structured between the past and the present Moving between the two times was effortless and complimentary rather than jarring It s no exaggeration that the book seduced me The writing was a tease Every second that I spent in 1938 with Lily Nick Budgie and co I wanted to know about 1931 and vice versa My body tingled with anticipation each time a small piece of the story was unraveled like the buttons of a shirt slowly being undone to reveal a bit skin The scenery was scorching and bright with hints of salty air tingeing every pageWhile the heart of the story involves a love triangle and occasionally a uadrilateral Beatriz William s writing showcases the wrinkles in a time period that is not often written about She subtly ties together America s distrust for the Jews the financial crash the burgeoning of World War II and the plastic exterior of society s finest That last point was the only one that frustrated me about this book the characters themselves We clearly see the severe dysfunction within each person as everyone puts on an overly affected show but aside from a few brief moments of clarity that s all they ever remain I would have willingly immersed myself in 100 pages to learn about the men and women behind the darlings and my dears than to catch glimpses at key momentsWhen I finally finished the book it took awhile to pull myself back to present day I still felt the heat of the beach the grit of the sand and the tension of events that unfolded Maybe a part of me just didn t want to let go
