Ann H. Gabhart, author of Scent of Lilacs takes us back to Hollyhill to check back in with Jocie Brooke and her family who are navigating life in the early 1960s. In Summer of Love, Gabhart weaves an eduring tale of small town people from a time gone by who are used to doing life always it had always been done. These simple folk are facing the tumultuous changes of life in the 60s and finding meaning and truth in the process. We enter the story from the perspectives of Jocie, a fourteen year old girl coming of age; and her father David the town newspaper editor and preacher, whose past and future finally find resolution, despite quite a few obstacles.
Summer of Joy is the tale of three, once-bitten twice shy individuals are all learning how to overcome insecurities and trust that they can find love and belonging once again.
