Editorial Reviews

Review

“The Summer List is a sparkling debut novel filled with nostalgia that will make you long for your childhood friends and carefree summer days.” —PopSugar, Best New Books to Put in Your Beach Bag

“This is a lovely debut by Doan, exploring themes of motherhood, daughterhood, and first love with tenderness and humor. The writing is fresh and charming, a perfect read for anyone who spent her teenage years reading the racy bits of cheap paperbacks out loud to their best friends.” —Booklist (Starred Review)

“This accomplished debut novel from Doan cleverly blends a coming-of-age tale, the story of a long-simmering mystery, and a thoughtful study of relationships between childhood friends.... With lovable characters and a scenic small town, Doan’s pleasant mix of mystery and high school nostalgia will please readers who grew up with the novels of Judy Blume.” —Publishers Weekly

“With a vivid sense of place and characters as real as your high school besties, this debut novel is sure to please fans of Kristin Hannah and Elin Hilderbrand.”—Library Journal

“Read this one on the beach with your BFF.” —HelloGiggles, Books Coming Out This Week You Don’t Want to Miss

“A trip down memory lane becomes a hunt for long-buried secrets in Amy Mason Doan's gripping and poignant debut about the bond between two compelling outsiders. The Summer List is an evocative tale of family, first love, and the unique and lasting gift of a friendship formed in girlhood.” —Meg Donohue, USA Today bestselling author

“There's not a word or plot line out of place in this fabulous debut about two girlhood friends from a small lakeside town who reunite as adults to try to salvage their broken relationship. Dive beneath the surface and you’ll find a complex and finely wrought story as full of mystery and vitality as the lake itself. These characters and their stories are going to stick with you for a long, long time.” —Meg Mitchell Moore, author of The Admissions and The Captain's Daughter

“In her mesmerizing debut, Amy Mason Doan challenges everything we think we know about family and forgiveness. Readers will be swept up in this haunting story of buried secrets and lost love.”—Lynda Cohen Loigman, author of The Two-Family House

“With its exquisite detail, The Summer List wouldn’t let me go, and the unexpected ending gave me chills. An irresistible novel of friendship and home.” —Jennifer S. Brown, author of Modern Girls

“A tender novel about friendship lost and rekindled, and uncovering the truth of the past. Equal parts bildungsroman and homecoming story, The Summer List is an opportunity for a second chance at love and a healing journey to repair estrangements before it’s too late.” —Polly Dugan, author of So Much a Part of You and The Sweetheart Deal

From the Back Cover

Secrets to making home the place your family longs to be
In our deepest hearts, we want home to be a place where our spirits are filled. A lifegiving haven of warmth, rest, and joy that will encourage everyone who enters it; a welcoming respite in an isolated culture.

Join beloved authors Sally and Sarah Clarkson to discover the path to a lifegiving home―from a mother who’s known for creating one and her daughter who was raised in it. This is their story: a story about a home where a real family learned to flourish, grow, and belong. Together they offer a treasury of wise advice and spiritual principles to help you create a place for all that is beautiful, good, holy, and foundational to life.

The Lifegiving Home will lead you on a new path to creating special memories for your children; establishing God-centered traditions; and cultivating an environment your family will cherish their whole lives long. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Apparently it's all about a candle.
By sarah on August 12, 2018
I wanted to love this book. I really did. I just DON'T. The whole thing is all about how Sally perfectly raised her children, how perfect their adventures in the world were, and how she perfectly lights her candles every day all day. People coming over? LIGHT A CANDLE. Eating a meal or snack? LIGHT A CANDLE. Relaxing with a book? LIGHT A CANDLE. Feeling sad? There's a CANDLE for that too!
I mean, don't get get me wrong, I like a good candle in my life....but just... C'mon!
Oh and in just about every section theirs some sort of obviously exaggerated, highly unlikely, perfectly worded quote from her kids. She writes it as if kids actually talk that way...I have a very difficult time believing they actually said any of it. I'll add a picture of one of the quotes.
