So here we are in the glorious Hamptons.
Diana Long is an attractive middle-aged widow who rents rooms in her East Hampton home, but she is feeling pressured to make changes in her life.
She loves the Hamptons, but should she sell the house and move on? Should she stay, perhaps settling for just one tenant or housemate, or only rent seasonally?
A retired librarian, Diana is an English as a Second Language tutor and enjoys volunteering for local organizations, like Guild Hall and the Horticultural Alliance. Three Rooms, Shared Bath shows the Hamptons up close, from Hampton Bays to Sag Harbor to Montauk, with real sites and scenes and events, such as Authors Night, the Hampton Classic, and the Shinnecock Indian Pow Wow.
The summer of 2008 is almost over. The Democratic Convention is in progress, with Obama taking the stage. The Beijing Olympics have just ended, and Hurricane Gustav is heading toward Louisiana. The world seems to be changing, but Diana feels she is standing still.
We meet and learn about many tenants, the good, the bad and the ugly, who have passed through Diana’s house. These include present tenants: Mark, a rude character in his twenties, Brett, a young architect and exceptionally nice guy, and Basia, a Polish beauty from hell, along with Diana’s good friend, Frank, her Mexican ESL student, Teresa, and others.
Should she make a change? Love enters the picture and that may alter all her choices, as love often does.
