One Perfect Summer


" A soft smile played at the corners of her mouth. Wouldn't it be nice if her dad was right? If a long cold winter could lead to abundance in the spring-for both lilacs and people?
It was something to hope for anyway." 

It often amazes me how one author can write passionately in so many different genres. 

The first book I ever read by Irene Hannon was Trapped. That was a suspense novel that bordered on "thriller" about a lady and her missing sister. 
This is an inspirational contemporary romance about a single mother and her beloved daughter. 
This is a short review of a long book.

An older woman who can't find peace until she finds the child she never knew. A young girl who just wants to make a wish come true. 
One Perfect Spring is the story of people who get together to make a change. And who find themselves changing in the process. Multiple characters- Claire, Keith and Maureen- must deal with the past and look to the future. 
This book is at once a peaceful and moving read. 
There is enough detail in the characters inner and outer world that you become invested in their story. And quite a story it is. It's a story about doing the best you can with things you can't change and maybe finding those surprising things like lilacs blossoming when all you expected was leaves.

Thank you Revell for our review copy!
