For the Skinners, their lives divide into two parts: before that heady summer – of unsupervised youth, family crisis and unavoidable tragedy – and after. But mainly after. The events of that childhood summer bound the Skinner siblings together fiercely, but the consequences would never be erased. After what happened, they thought they could never be pulled apart, but it's the million little betrayals echoing through the years that threaten to fray their last fragile ties . . . Spanning five decades and following four unforgettable siblings, The Last Romantics is a sweeping, intimate and compelling portrait of one family – and every family. It is about the responsibilities we bear, how we grow together and apart, but how love will always guide us home. e.
