Description (from the author’s website)
Book Two of THE LOWCOUNTRY SUMMER TRILOGY
The Summer Wind is the second book in Monroe’s Lowcountry Summer series, following the New York Times bestselling The Summer Girls. This series is a poignant and heartwarming story of three half-sisters and their grandmother who is determined to help them rediscover their southern roots and family bonds. In book two, Dora’s facade collapses and she suffers “broken heart” syndrome. Carson returns from Florida to face life changing decisions, Lucille confronts a health scare, and an unexpected visitor has Harper reconsidering her life’s direction.
My Review (5 Stars: Loved it!)
Dora has “let herself go” over the last ten years of her marriage, has a young son with autism, and is going through a divorce. With the help of her sisters, Mamaw and Lucille she is getting stronger, gaining self-confidence, exercising and having some fun.
Carson’s story, from the fist book, The Summer Girls, is carried on. Dora’s son, Nate, and Carson travel to Florida to visit the dolphin, Delphine. Also Nate enters a special program where he works with dolphins and learns more about them.While this is an uplifting story, there are some tough challenges and sad events that brought tears to my eyes.
