It's a brilliant cool summer day, my windows are open and right now at this moment the kids are watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates. I have a few moments to write this review out. I also wanted to give you another cute picture of my oldest Kylar. She is an avid reader, she loves laying about and reading. I hope you enjoy it :)
That Certain Summer by Irene Hannon is a multi-faceted story of several characters who are in essence thrown together. Circumstances bring two estranged sisters together, as well as a broken musician and a widowed father. Karen and Val's ornery mother has suffered a stroke and Val must come home to help with the care taking. While Scott is recovering from a tragic accident that stopped his career, and David is looking to start over after the loss of his wife. As the story enfolds more truths are unveiled and the four come to understand what God has for them.
This story was something that you needed to read and ponder. This book made me experience emotions that only come from a well written book. I was angry at the mom! She was definitely not a nice woman, and she made life miserable for her two daughters. She was controlling and manipulative and really not a very nice person. When you have an author that create emotions in you whether they may be good or bad, I would say it's a good book. Just know that this book touches on issues that may not be appropriate for a young reader. So dear readers if you want a book that is a contemporary romance that brings emotions out of you, please read That Certain Summer.
