Raise one last glass with the Quinn Family at the Winter Street Inn.

It's been too long since the entire Quinn family has been able to celebrate the holidays under the same roof, but that's about to change. With Bart back safe and sound from Afghanistan, the Quinns are preparing for a holiday more joyous than any they've experienced in years. And Bart's safe return isn't the family's only good news: Kevin is enjoying married life with Isabelle; Patrick is getting back on his feet after paying his debt to society; Ava thinks she's finally found the love of her life; and Kelly is thrilled to see his family reunited at last. But it just wouldn't be a Quinn family gathering if things went smoothly. A celebration of everything we love--and some of the things we endure--about the holidays, WINTER SOLSTICE is Elin Hilderbrand at her festive best.

Follow the Quinn family through the entire Winter Street Series:

Booklist Review
In this somber coda to the Winter Street trilogy (Winter Street, 2014; Winter Stroll, 2015; Winter Storms, 2016), Hilderbrand revisits the lives, loves, and challenges of the Quinn family at the Winter Street Inn. Set during the last three months of the year and peppered with cameo appearances from earlier books in the series, Winter Solstice gives equal weight to threads of hope and despair. Patriarch Kelley is ailing, and his wife, Mitzi, is trying to keep everything together. Kelley's grown children, Kevin, Patrick, and Ava, are living their own lives while maintaining their connection to the inn, and Kelley and Mitzi's son, returned POW Bart, struggles with PTSD. Gathering for a party on Halloween, celebrating the traditional family Thanksgiving, and returning once more on the titular winter solstice, the Quinns come together to support each other in grief and envision a hopeful future.Fans of Hilderbrand will enjoy the return to Nantucket and Winter Street, newcomers will feel right at home, and readers who appreciate a strong sense of place and interesting characters will be well satisfied.--Moroni, Alene Copyright 2018 Booklist
