When 30-year-old Julia, mourning the death of her husband, decides to sell the Santa Cruz beach house they owned together, she sets in motion a final summer that will change the lives of all the families who rent it year after year. Teenaged Chris discovers the bittersweet joy of first love. Maggie and Joe, married sixty-five years, courageously face a separation that even their devotion cannot prevent. The married woman Peter yearns for suddenly comes within his reach. And Julia ultimately finds the strength to rebuild her life-something she once thought impossible. With equal measures of heartbreak and happiness, best-selling author Georgia Bockoven's unforgettable novel tells of the beauty of life and the power of love, and speaks to every woman who has ever clung to a child or loved a man.

Really interesting introducing new guests
The characters were interesting but a bit dated and old fashioned.
Predictable. It all ended very neatly, nothing unexpected. A few twists and turns would have added interest.
Absolutely not! She over pronounces every syllable and makes the characters dialogue sound stilted and very unbelievable. Nobody talks like that! I would have ordered the sequels if they were performed by someone else.
A better performer reading it.
The story was good enough that I would consider reading the sequels but absolutely wouldn't listen to this performer again.
