Intriguing and Absorbing
on October 16, 2000
The Summer House is an intriguing story, filled with surprising twists and turns, which keeps the reader on-edge until the end! This is not a mush and gush romantic tale - but one of love and lost love. The heroine, Liz Adams, sacrifices herself for her father's wishes, dreams, and commands. Liz lives her life based on the decisions her father makes for her, as well as for her three other siblings. All of their lives become intertwined when Liz's husband, Michael, runs for the Presidency and even more so, when their patriarch dies and Liz is left to confront the façade and charade she has lived, and the love that she yearned for and could not have.
This tale had many characters, and all were equally interesting but not to the point of confusion - a nice mix and balance.
This story kept me guessing and I would really love to see a sequel to this book!! Too many unanswered questions and too many open-ended issues left in the book!
This is my first book by Jean Stone and I would enthusiastically recommended this book to other readers. I am now in search of her other books to absorb!
