The Summer of New Beginnings by Bette Lee Crosby blurb

Book review by HelenThis is a beautifully penned story, a story of loss, hope, the struggles of life and love when George Briggs passes away suddenly he leaves behind his wife Lila and two daughters Tracy and Meghan. Tracy is working in a bank and Meghan is just about to go off to college to become a journalist. Losing her father changes all of that as she decides to stay home and run the business that her father started. This is a story that will have you turning the pages to join this family on their new path in life.

Meghan was always very close to her father. She is the sensible daughter and Tracy can be a bit of a wild child and losing their father affects them differently. Lila worries that things will be hard for them all. Tracy falls in love with Dominic and goes against her mother’s wishes and moves to another state. Meghan supports Tracy saying that she must find her way in life. This ends in the birth of a little boy and Tracy struggling.

Meghan continues to write in her journals and run the Snip and Save magazine and does well but she does struggle. When she rescues a dog from a swollen lake her life takes on a new meaning, and Sox as she calls him seems to be a gift, but from who? And this leads her to the new local vet, Tom. Emotions and feeling blossom in such a gorgeous way between the two of them
.
This is another beautiful and compelling story from Ms Crosby. She knows how to pull at the readers’ heartstrings, bring characters to life and to make the reader feel a part of the story. This one is moving and emotional and ticks all of the boxes for a story that I would highly recommend. And yay, it is the first in a series, so I look forward to more stories set in Magnolia Grove and keeping in touch with Meghan and Tom, Tracy, Lucas and Gabriel. Thank you Ms Crosby for another keeper.
