First in a new series from a national bestselling author whose novels are like those of Nicholas Sparks and Richard Paul Evans.
In “A Month of Summer,” Hannah Beth has been caring for her aging husband—-who suffers from Alzheimer’s—-and her developmentally challenged adult son for years on her own.
But when she suffers a stroke, estranged stepdaughter Rebecca must take the reins. As she cares for her father and the step-brother she’s barely met, Rebecca slowly begins to heal both herself and her family.
For Rebecca Macklin, an ordinary summer brings about an extraordinary change of heart when she discovers that her aging father has been wandering the Dallas streets alone, and his wife, Hanna Beth, has landed in a nursing home. Now Rebecca must put aside old resentments and return to her childhood home. In this moving story of separation and forgiveness, two women will unravel the betrayals of the past and discover the true meaning of family.
