Steven Recht is pleased to follow up his successful debut novel, Sandy Cove, with Summer of Hope, Summer of Dreams. A graduate of Washington University in St. Louis and the Washington College of Law, Steven's initial writing was confined to the legal brief genre. More recently, freed from the bonds of adjectiveless legalese, he has expanded the scope of his writing to include fiction of the literary bent. He strives to one day write a novel that would live up to his mother's high standards. Mr. Recht lives in Pittsburgh, PA, with his wife, three children and Airedale Terrier.
