Book Review: Summer Island
Summer Island - Kristin Hannah

Book: Summer Island

 

Author: Kristin Hannah

 

Genre: Fiction/Family/Healing

 

Summary: Years ago, Nora Bridge walked out on her marriage, leaving her daughters behind. Now she is a celebrity talk-show host, famous for her stern moral advice. Her daughter Ruby is a struggling comedienne. The two haven't spoken in more than a decade. Then a scandal from Nora's past is exposed, and Ruby is offered a fortune to write a tell-all about her mother. Reluctantly, she returns to the family house on Summer Island, a home filled with frayed memories of joy and heartache. Confronting a past that includes a never-forgotten love, a sick best friend, and a mother who has harbored terrible family secrets, Ruby finally begins to understand the complex ties that bind a mother and daughter - and the healing that comes with forgiveness. - Ballantine Books, 2001.

Tea, Rain, Book's COYER Summer Vacation 2017 Sign Up Post

To sign up and for rules, see COYER Summer Vacation 2017 post

 

This is my second COYER (my first was last year's summer edition) and I really enjoy the book discussions (on FB and Twitter) and giving me incentives to keep reading during the summer.

 

COYER Summer Vacation has two ways to play this year: one way is to do basic "read anything you want in whatever format you want" COYER and the other way is to build your own summer reading list (a throwback to summers spent reading off a list given by teachers). I decided to go with the COYER Summer Reading List, as I like a focused group of books to track. I made two copies of my summer reading list, here on BL and on GR. My list is a mix of print and e-books, all from my personal library. I don't know if I will add more books as I read down the original list (see rules in the linked post); that will be a decision I make come in early August.

 

For the summer reading list, there will also be mandatory read-a-thons- the last read-a-thon will happen at the same time as Bout of Books Cycle 20, so I can participate in two read-a-thons in one week (of course, the read-a-thons end the day before school starts).

 

Now I just need to wait patiently for June 17th to come around.

The Gypsy Moth Summer: A Novel - Julia Fierro

There are certainly a lot of things going on in this book and it all happens in just one summer. There are back stories for some of the characters, as well. Most of the characters are teenagers doing what teenagers do. It all comes crashing down in the end when racial tensions, environmental concerns and a plot for revenge meet head on.

A pretty good story that I found interesting and entertaining. The whole story seems to be crashing towards a pretty bad ending for the characters. The author gives you a hint that someone gets shot. My intuitions kept going back and forth as to who this character would be. Definitely a sad ending.

Thanks to St. Martin's Press for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

 #Synopsis:

 

Win the game. Lose your heart.

 

Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That’s supposed to be the “per” of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don’t want just any woman; I want her.

 

She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can’t stop thinking about the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.

 

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She’s every ballplayer’s dream woman. And I’d do anything to make things right with her.

 

I’m done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.
