Format: Single Narration

A Manhattan socialite who loses everything. The mother she’s resented for over twenty years. A return to Martha’s Vineyard, where healing can finally begin.
Janine Potter grew up on the other side of the tracks. Her mother, Nancy, struggled with just about everything—alcohol, men, money—and Janine made a pledge to herself that she would never be like her.
At age nineteen, Janine met Jack Potter, the son of an oil tycoon, and never looked back. Her life became a series of cocktail parties and multi-million-dollar apartments all across the world, and rubbing elbows with celebrities. Slowly, memory of her mother faded, although the trauma never really did.
Fast-forward to the present: Janine is forty-three, with two beautiful daughters, a perfect apartment, a handsome husband who betrays her beyond her wildest dreams.
Soon, Janine is cast out from her picture-perfect life. She has nothing. Her mother, Nancy, who’s gone through trials and triumphs of her own over the previous twenty years, sees Janine’s very public devastation as an opportunity to reach out to the daughter she’s missed so desperately over the years.
"Come to Martha’s Vineyard. Return to me. Let’s heal together, after the shared trauma of our past."
Janine has nowhere else to turn. For the first time in twenty-five years, her mother is her only answer.
But the world that awaits her on Martha’s Vineyard is beyond her wildest dreams. There are new friends, two step-sisters, beautiful ocean waters, and even a potential love interest : a summer she’ll never forget.
Can Janine and her mother find a way to heal the wounds of their past? Can Janine overcome the ultimate betrayal?
