The Heart of Summer

We rated this book:


Hanna Casey is the librarian on the West Irish Peninsula, known as Finfarra. She’s recently moved in with Brian. But it’s taken her time to trust a man again after the disastrous marriage to ex-husband Malcolm. And when Brian’s son Mike comes for an extended stay, Hanna decides it might be a good time to take a trip to London to see some old friends. London is a much-needed break, and Hanna might also have a new job offer, but will she be tempted to stay? Or will she return to the life that she’s built in Finfarra?

The Heart of Summer is a wonderful family, commitment, and community story. It’s full of a cast of characters trying to create new directions in their lives and find a sense of place to call their own. My favorite character by far was Fury, who had a great gift of wisdom and could provide advice to anyone he met. This one will likely hit the spot if you are looking for a warmhearted and entertaining read.
