Summer's List, by Anita Higman {a book review}

About the book

A dying wish alters the course of a young woman’s life.

Life hadn’t been easy for Summer Snow. In acts of selflessness-caring for her ailing parents and running her grandmother’s bookstore-she had forfeited her youth and dreams for the needs of others. And the only tries she had at love… didn’t turn out. She had the bookstore, she had her beloved granny, but she was missing something-or someone.

Opportunity strikes when Granny sends Summer on an unexpected adventure with one Martin Langtree, a kind but gangly young man from Summer’s past. A childhood friendship is rekindled, a romance is sparked, and mysteries are solved in one magical Texas summer. Will Summer strike out on love again, or will things finally go her way?

What I thought about the book

I found this to be an enjoyable story. I especially enjoyed the descriptive, oftentimes-little-used-words sprinkled throughout. This story has a fairy-tale quality to it. It sort of reminded me of Cinderella, only with a male peasant and a princess.

One thing I want to mention: if you believe what the Bible says about death in the following verses, you may have a problem with this story: Psalm 6:5; Psalm 115:17; Psalm 146:3,4; Ecclesiates 9:5,6; Job 7:9,10; Job 21:32; John 5:28,29; John 20:10.
