So Long Summer by Teresa Herbic
About The Book:
So Long Summer is an inspiring story of youth and the essential bonds of friendship. Meet Madison, a teenager, who travels with her family to the ideal summer place each year. There, she meets a stormy Miss Macey. The two form an instant connection. Macey struggles with the temptations of drugs, alcohol and unhealthy relationships.
With concerns of her own and darkness looming, Madison seeks the hope and light of God. As their lives intertwine and Madison begins to meet other encouraging people along the way, summer bridges the gap between friends and hopefulness—life and escaping despair.
The teens become ladies who can now uncover a faith as remarkable as summer itself. In the midst, Madison meets a special love interest. Could West be the one? As summer fills your spirit, may this book remind you of important and enduring friendships —some last forever and some remain only in the heart. Regardless, all bring us pure joy, precious memories and powerful lessons of life, family and love. For, what would we do without the friendships of a lifetime and the courage to face new tomorrows?
