Three generations of women unexpectedly head out to the family’s cottage at the Straits of Mackinac for a small-town Michigan summer together. Jaycie begins an Archeology internship on Mackinac Island. Her mother, Tamara, takes a break from teaching kindergarteners. And her grandmother, Dawn, struggles with a decision to sell her successful travel agency and possibly retire.Each has her own journey to pursue during this short respite time from “normal” life. One of them has a secret that will change all of their lives. Can she make this one special summer to remember or will all be devastated? Faith for family and friends will be tested, with some finally able to put the past behind them and begin anew.(Set in 2018, pre-Pandemic.)

Book Takeaway:

Follow God's guidance. Life doesn't always go as you think it should. Family matters.

Why the author wrote this book:

My mother as her last wish asked me to tell people to NOT have a Whipple procedure done for pancreatic cancer. I'd taken a pause in my writing but I felt compelled to finally honor my mother's last request of me--I want to do something that might reach more people. However, as a historical romance author in CF, I realized that I would have to venture out into uncharted waters for me. The story had to be contemporary, since the Whipple is a modern invention although Mom would have considered it a torture device. I wrote three endings to this book before finally settling on the actual end that I gave it.
