ABOUT ELIN HILDERBRAND : Although born in Pennsylvania, Elin Hilderbrand looked forward to spending her childhood summers in Cape Cod with her family, playing games, adventuring around the beach and getting the perfect golden tan. When Hilderbrand’s father passed away when she was 16 years old, she spent that summer working in a costume factory warehouse, miles and miles away from her Cape Cod home. She promised herself that for the rest of her life she would always have a real summer.
After traveling extensively, Hilderbrand moved to Nantucket in 1993 and took a job as the “classified ads” writer at a local newspaper and later began her writing career. Hilderbrand is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and the graduate fiction workshop at the University of Iowa.
Hilderbrand released her most recent book titled Beautiful Day, an emotional story of a Nantucket wedding that takes us into the heart of marriage, what it means to be faithful and how we choose to honor our commitments.
