Sonnet Romano’s life is almost perfect. She has the ideal career, the ideal boyfriend, and has just been offered a prestigious fellowship. But when she learns that her mother is unexpectedly expecting in a high-risk pregnancy, she puts everything on hold and heads home to Avalon. Once her mom is out of danger, Sonnet intends to pick up her life where she left off.

But when her mother receives a devastating diagnosis, Sonnet must decide what really matters in life, even if that means staying in Avalon and taking a job that forces her to work alongside her biggest, and maybe her sweetest, mistake—award-winning filmmaker Zach Alger. And in a summer of laughter and tears, of old dreams and new possibilities, Sonnet may find the home of her heart.

At once heartbreaking and uplifting, Return to Willow Lake plumbs the deepest corners of the human heart, exploring the bonds of family, the perils and rewards of love, and the true meaning of home. Profoundly emotional and resonant, this is Susan Wiggs at her finest.

    " I enjoyed reading this book. I've read a few from this series and I enjoy the characters. It reminded me to follow your heart, and that love and family is what is important life. Count your blessings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 12/25/2013

    " A great story of self-discovery and what's really important in life! Another great feel-good book with characters I know and love! Thanks, Susan! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryAnn | 12/21/2013

    " I've really enjoyed this series. I'm seeing a book on Max coming next?! This was an easy, 'take me away' type read. Predictable but good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 12/20/2013

    " I enjoyed returning to this series, it is like going home. Great storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 12/18/2013

    " I first read Marrying Daisy Bellamy and LOVED it so I was excited to read this book as well. I really liked Sonnet as Daisy's best friend and stepsister so it was nice to get to know her as a main character in this book. She is an amazing and truly likeable character with much depth. We watch her struggle with finding her place in the world, learning to live for herself and not her formerly absentee father's expectations for her life. She also struggles with accepting her mother's illness and her feeling for Zach, another great character. The one thing I struggled with in the beginning was Sonnet's surprise over how extremely attractive Zach has become as an adult and it is made to seem as if they haven't seen each other in many years, but in Marrying Daisy Bellamy I recall them spending time together and hanging out with Daisy together shortly before Return To Willow Lake would have taken place. It doesn't affect the overall story but that inconstancy hugged me. "

    " Started this yesterday, liking it so far. Liked this all the way to the end. It was good to see Sonnet realize how conditional her father's love was. I was a bit surprised by the twist with "perfect" Orlando! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellie | 10/26/2013

    " Susan Wiggs writes nice, predictable stories about people you like. Her novels are like comfort food for the brain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michal Hope | 10/2/2013

    " This hit a personal chord for me, being the daughter of a cancer victim following 2 attempts to eradicate it. I could really identify w/ Sonnet's struggle to be there for her mother and find her own path. I love Susan Wiggs' books but this one in particular goes down as one of my all time favorites. "
