About this book
The brand-new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr that Kirkus calls "a blissful beach read." The Summer That Made Us is an unforgettable story about a family learning to accept the past, to forgive and to love each other again.

That was then…

For the Hempsteads, summers were idyllic. The lake was a magical place, a haven where they were happy and carefree. All of their problems drifted away as the days passed in sun-dappled contentment. Until the summer that changed everything.

This is now…

After an accident turned the lake house into a site of tragedy and grief, it was closed up. None of the Hempstead women speak of what happened, and relationships between them are uneasy at best to hurtful at worst. But in the face of new challenges, one woman is determined to draw her family together again, and the only way that can happen is to return to the lake and face the truth.

Robyn Carr has crafted another beautifully woven story about the complexities of family dynamics and the value of strong female relationships.

My thoughts
I don't think I have read a Robyn Carr book that I have not loved. She has a way of making you feel as if you are at home in the pages of her books. The author makes the character feel so real. This story could be your own family. She takes real life situations and makes them end in a happy way. I liked how this story pulled at your heartstrings while reading it. It takes you on a emotional roller coaster as you read it. It took Meg getting sick to bring a family back together that was torn apart by a tragedy. Each of the ladies in this story have their own issues in their lives and going back to the lake can be a way to make things better. The way this book was written you felt as if you were along on the journey with the girls. As I always I highly recommend Robyn Carr's books to my book friends.
