Here is Publisher’s Weekly review of OFF SEASON:

No one does coastal melodrama like veteran Siddons (Homeplace). Lilly Constable McCall, 53, has led an enviable life—marriage and children with a successful architect, her own success as a sculptor—but husband Cam’s death sends her spiraling. She returns to the coastal family cottage in Edgewater, Maine, where she spent her childhood, and where Cam died. There, she recalls the summer of 1962, and the arrival in town of new girl Peaches Davenport, who envies all Lilly has. That includes the attentions of attractive older boy Jon Lowell, who awakens grown-up feelings in Lilly’s 11-year-old heart. But it’s Lilly’s place as the daughter of a Washington, D.C., professor and the sporadically successful painter and activist Elizabeth Constable—that makes Lilly’s childhood most attractive to Peaches, and to readers. Jon may have shared her first kiss, and Cam her home and children, but it’s the changing relationship between Lilly and the elusive, enigmatic Elizabeth that makes this story fresh.
