The Long Summer


When Sophia was told that she was going to be spending her final summer before going off to Harvard with her eccentric Grandma Mary, she was less than enthused. It was, after all, supposed to be the summer to say goodbye to friends and hello to adulthood, not stuck in a dusty old mansion with a woman she didn’t even know..

It wasn’t long, however, before she discovers a family secret and how it’s shaped even her own life.

Losing herself as she listens to Grandma Mary recount her own scandalous past, Sophia learns about her family, herself and maybe even a little about love.

From best selling author Colleen Nye, The Long Summer takes you on the journey of one family’s choices and how fate can sometimes be relentless.
