Product Description:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mary McNear brings you home to Butternut Lake and a novel filled with irresistible characters who you will want to call your friends.

It’s summertime on Butternut Lake, where the heat of noon is soothed by the cool breezes of the evening, where the pace grows slower, and sometimes, just sometimes, the summer light makes everything clearer...

For the lovely Billy Harper, Butternut Lake is the place she feels most at home, even though lately she feels the only one listening to her is Murphy...her faithful Labrador Retriever. Her teenage son, Luke, has gone from precious to precocious practically overnight. Her friends are wrapped up in their own lives, and Luke’s father, Wesley, disappeared before his son was even born. No wonder she prefers to spend time with a good book, especially ones where everything ends in perfection.

But Billy is about to learn that anything is possible during the heady days of summer. Coming to terms with her past—the death of her father, the arrival of Cal Cooper, a complicated man with a definite interest in Billy, even the return of Wesley, will force her to have a little bit of faith in herself and others...and realize that happiness doesn’t always mean perfection.

“Butternut Lake is so beautifully rendered, you’ll wish it was real.”—Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author  

“This triumphant story had me reading until the wee hours of the morning.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber on The Space Between Sisters



 

 

 

 



Billy Harper loves her job as the head librarian in Butternut Lake, where she settled several years ago with Luke, her thirteen-year-old son, and her Lab, Murphy. Books are her passion, and she holds daily discussions with Murphy believing the canine understands her like no other.

When Luke shows signs of teenage angst and gets suspended for smoking on school grounds, Billy begins to worry. Luke, always a good kid, is questioning Billy about the father he never met. Billy had gone to Alaska on a fishing trip with her dad when she was a teenager and surrendered to the appeal of a guide named, Wesley. There she lost her virginity and became pregnant, deciding to keep the baby even though she was unable to locate Wesley.

Now they both enjoy a good life, yet something is missing for Billy. She realizes Luke is growing up and won't need her much longer, but her history with men makes her unwilling to jump into the dating pool. Then, handsome, rich, and very attractive Cal Cooper arrives in town, and though Billy is drawn to him, the pain from her past keeps her aloof.

Billy and Luke are grieving over the loss of Billy's dad to whom they were close. Billy's dad hired a detective to find Wesley and gave her his dossier before he passed away, but Billy never felt the time was right to contact Wesley or tell Luke. Now she must tell him before his animosity gets him into more trouble.

The Light in Summer is an emotional tale of redemption and faith where Billy and Luke gain trust and love.
