ummer dreamin'At the opposite side of the country, three women who share a birthday reunite to reconsider their lives as they turn 40. The Summerhouse by Jude Deveraux (audio) is an evocative and poignant exploration of "what might have been," when fate provides an opportunity for a new outcome.
Leslie, Madison and Ellie met on the cusp of adulthood at the New York DMV full of dreams, hopes and ambitions; summer girls filled with zest and beauty. But ambitions have unexpected results whether fulfilled or not, their outcomes don't follow expected paths. Now, at midlife, all three women are given the opportunity to remake the choices they've made in life.
Jude Deveraux's writing is enchanting and exquisite in this story of women exploring themselves and their loves and discovering new paths along the way.
