More About That Certain Summer by Irene Hannon
 
 
 
Overview
Karen and Val are family--yet they're anything but close. Karen has carried the burden of responsibility for her aging mother ever since her gorgeous sister left town years ago to pursue a career in theater. But Val had darker reasons for leaving town--as well as a secret to keep--and coming home has never been an option . . . until their mother suffers a stroke.

Reunited in their hometown, Karen and Val must grapple with their past mistakes, their relationship with each other, and their issues with a mother who is far from ideal. When a physical therapist raising his daughter alone and a handsome but hurting musician enter the picture, the summer takes on a whole new dimension. As their lives intersect and entwine, can each learn how to forgive, how to let go, and how to move on? And strengthened by the healing power of faith, might they also find the courage to love?

With her trademark compelling characters and heartwarming hope, fan favorite Irene Hannon offers her readers an inspiring true-to-life tale of complex family relationships, transgressions revealed and forgiven, and the complicated process of finding love.

RITA-winner Hannon (In Harm’s Way) offers an emotional story filled with romance and small dramas. Four people living in Washington, Mo., connect to the pain of their pasts with unexpected results. Val, a high school drama teacher, returns to her hometown during summer vacation to nurse her ailing mother. As the summer progresses, she has to nurture her own heart and spirit in order to forgive herself for youthful mistakes. Karen, Val’s sister, however, is bitter. While Val was away pursuing her dreams, Karen cared for their mother (not an easy task) and neglected her own life as a result. Scott lived and breathed music and his band until an accident changes his life. After meeting Karen at church, his days take a turn for the better. Will he have the courage and strength to move on? David wanted a better life for his daughter Victoria. After he meets Val by chance at his office, he can’t seem to get her off his mind. Is he ready to embrace the challenges of his new move to Washington? The lives of these endearing characters intertwine over a summer and undergo change as Hannon has readers rooting for each one of them in this uplifting story about love and redemption. Agent: Chip MacGregor, MacGregor Literary. (June)
