Lisa Wingate has been favorably compared to authors Nicholas Sparks and Richard Paul Evans. In A Month of Summer, Hanna 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.

    " It brought to the forefront life experience we all are most likely to face, too much was crammed into "summer". The development of the characters was pretty amazing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 11/1/2010

    " I don't know why, but Wingate's books are really slow reads for me. I like them, but they take me forever. This one was good. I liked how everything was resolved. I knew it was going to happen that way, but that's okay. Predictable can be good. "

    " It was uplifting - and made you count your blessings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 9/15/2010

    " What a surprisingly wonderful story! It's truly a story of family love and redemption. If you get a chance to get your hands on this one, you will love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lncropper | 8/26/2010

    " I liked this book. The author is a Christian and faith figures in the story a lot. It is continued in at least one more book, which I have read. The characters are likeable people--well, most of them anyway--unlike those in some books I have read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 8/5/2010

    " Auntie Lucy lent me this book about a year ago, and I am just getting to read it. I didn't know if I'd like it, but I love it. It is a very intense account of an impossible situation - identity theft on a family with severe health problems. Very scary. Almost done~! "
