The Summer of New Beginnings by Bette Lee Crosby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Summer of New Beginnings by Bette Lee Crosby is a sweet read about the family dynamics between mothers and daughters and sisters. Meghan is forced to leave her dream of becoming a journalist behind in order to take over her father’s business when he dies unexpectedly. Her sister, Tracy, is irresponsible and takes off to another state with her boyfriend. When Tracy returns with her young son, Meghan knows that there is something not quite right with the child. Yet her mother and sister are in denial. It is up to Meghan to convince them to seek treatment. Meghan’s lovable dog plays a key role in helping this to happen, and in sparking the relationship between Meghan and a potential beau, the town’s new veterinarian. Spiritual undertones emanate throughout this book and give it a flavor of hope, even in life’s more dire circumstances.
