Publisher's Summary

Sonnet Romano’s life is almost perfect. She has the ideal career, the ideal boyfriend, and has just been offered a prestigious fellowship. There’s nothing more a woman wants - except maybe a baby...brother?When Sonnet finds out her mother is unexpectedly expecting, and that the pregnancy is high risk, she puts everything on hold - the job, the fellowship, the boyfriend - and heads home to Avalon. Once her mom is out of danger, Sonnet intends to pick up her life where she left off. But when her mother receives a devastating diagnosis, Sonnet must decide what really matters in life, even if that means staying in Avalon and taking a job that forces her to work alongside her biggest, and maybe her sweetest, mistake - award-winning filmmaker Zach Alger. So Sonnet embarks on a summer of laughter and tears, of old dreams and new possibilities, and of finding the home of her heart.
At once heartbreaking and uplifting, Return to Willow Lake plumbs the deepest corners of the human heart, exploring the bonds of family, the perils and rewards of love, and the true meaning of home. Profoundly emotional and resonant, this is Susan Wiggs at her finest.

Another Great Read from Susan Wiggs.

This is 9th in the series, and I have enjoyed them all and loved Sonnet's story with a catch up on Nina her Mum as well.While this is 'romance' it is more women's fiction and a young person finding her real self.It begins and ends with a wedding, all very satisfying.While this is a series book, it can easily be read by itself, the series just gives backgroound knowledge of some of the minor characters to the reader who has read them all. No big deal.Joyce Bean does an excellent narration.

Good Story about What's Really Important in Life

Young, smart and beautiful, Sonnet has the world by the tail. She has a great job, has a handsome boyfriend, and has just won a coveted fellowship to an overseas post. Her dad is a retired general who's running for US Senate. Her mother, Nina, sacrificed her own youth, not even telling the young West Point cadet that she was pregnant, until many years later. When Nina needs her daughter, Sonnet moves back home to Avalon to be close to her family, and it's here that she begins to question the choices she's made. The audio book is so much more than a light love story. It's an honest searching of a woman's soul, about peeling away the layers of veneer and getting to the heart of things. It's about politics and people who cannot ever get past being polite and working their own agenda. And it's about those brave enough to be true to themselves and to others, despite the emotional cost.
