Product Description:

The brand-new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr that Kirkus calls "a blissful beach read." The Summer That Made Us is an unforgettable story about a family learning to accept the past, to forgive and to love each other again.

That was then…

For the Hempsteads, summers were idyllic. The lake was a magical place, a haven where they were happy and carefree. All of their problems drifted away as the days passed in sun-dappled contentment. Until the summer that changed everything.

This is now…

After an accident turned the lake house into a site of tragedy and grief, it was closed up. None of the Hempstead women speak of what happened, and relationships between them are uneasy at best to hurtful at worst. But in the face of new challenges, one woman is determined to draw her family together again, and the only way that can happen is to return to the lake and face the truth.

Robyn Carr has crafted another beautifully woven story about the complexities of family dynamics and the value of strong female relationships.



Families! We all have them, some better than others. But in The Summer That Made Us,  Robyn Carr combines the good and the bad, the mystery with the predictable.

Sisters Jo and Lou married brothers. They both had three girls but that’s about all they had in common. Lou married a very responsible man and had a somewhat easy life. Jo married a very irresponsible man and always worried about money.

Every summer the sisters got together with their girls and visited the lake house at Lake Waseka in Minnesota. They loved it there even when things weren't perfect.   A tragedy involving one of the girls tore the families apart and they closed up the lake house.

Over twenty years later, some of the girls decided to reopen the lake house and try to bring the families back together. It wasn’t going to be easy. Jo’s girls: Hope, lived in a fantasy world, Krista spent over 20 years in prison and Beverly was finally on the mend. Lou’s girls: Charley was a talk show host recently out of a job, Meg trying to survive four years of breast cancer.

Robyn Carr has the ability to delve into everyone’s personalities and have you involved in their lives and loves, mysteries and the mundane. You root for all the characters as if they were your own, faults and all!
