"Divine....A delicious summer read." ---Elin Hilderbrand, author ofBeautiful Day

Spending the summer of 1928 in a big house on the Maine coast with his 10 older cousins and a gaggle of aunts and uncles seems like a dream come true to lonely 13-year-old Richard.

But as he wanders through the bustling house, Richard witnesses the family he adores disintegrate into a tangle of lust, jealousy, and betrayal. Merely an avid spectator as the summer begins, Richard soon finds himself drawn into the confusion, battling with his own first experience of infatuation, and forced to cover for his relatives' romantic intrigues.

With jump-off-the-page characters and a captivating sense of place, SHORECLIFF examines the loyalty and rivalry that can both knit a family together and drive it apart.

Editorial Reviews

"DeYoung's vivid evocation of a summer home in Maine along with the enthralling, flawed members of the extended Hatfield clan held me captive from the very first page to the electrifying conclusion. Shorecliff reads like the work of a seasoned veteran of the form, not a debut novelist."-Meg Mitchell Moore, author of So Far Away
