Cape May; Chip Cheek
Celadon Books/Macmillan Audio - 2019


"The beaches were empty, the stores were closed, and after sunset, all the houses on New Hampshire Avenue stood dark.  For months, Effie had been telling him about this place and the many things they would do here, but she had only known it in summer, and this was the end of September. She had not understood what 'off season' meant. They came up from Georgia on the overnight train.  They were supposed to spend two weeks here, for their honeymoon."

"I love it, Henry said their first evening. It's like we got the whole place to ourselves."

What do you think? Read more or pass?
