Book review: The Summer Hideaway, by Susan Wiggs
This moving story about the importance of family and forgiveness, set at peaceful Willow Lake, follows three characters learning to live in the moment. Claire hasn't trusted anyone since the day she witnessed a murder, but her job as a private nurse to an elderly, ailing man keeps her distracted. Her patient, George, is determined to reconcile with his estranged brother before it's too late. Ross, George's grandson, has just returned from fighting in Afghanistan, confused and lonely. As George attempts to reconnect his entire family, Claire and Ross struggle to make the leap of faith necessary to fall in love―all demonstrating that relationships can be mended and hearts can be healed.
