When spunky Marguerite Westing discovers that her family will summer at Lake Manawa in 1895, she couldn't be more thrilled. It is the perfect way to escape her agonizingly boring suitor, Roger Gordon. It's also where she stumbles upon two new loves: sailing, and sailing instructor Trip Andrews. But this summer of fun turns to turmoil as her father's gambling problems threaten to ruin the family forever. Will free-spirited Marguerite marry Roger to save her father's name and fortune? Or will she follow her heart--even if it means abandoning the family she loves?
I hope readers will come away seeing how much God values truth--especially telling ourselves the truth.
Why the author wrote this book:
My father grew up in the Lake Manawa area and told me many stories about the resort back in its heyday. I wanted to bring the history of this fascinating place alive.
