For June, the Online Book Club will read and discuss One Summer by David Baldacci. I’ve only read one other David Baldacci book, which was not his typical style – The Christmas Train. I really enjoyed the book. I also read a book written by his sister called A Sundog Moment, which was about a woman dealing with multiple sclerosis. It was well-written as well. I’m looking forward to reading this book.
Here is the Goodreads summary of One Summer:
It’s almost Christmas, but there is no joy in the house of terminally ill Jack and his family. With only a short time left to live, he spends his last days preparing to say goodbye to his devoted wife, Lizzie, and their three children. Then, unthinkably, tragedy strikes again: Lizzie is killed in a car accident. With no one able to care for them, the children are separated from each other and sent to live with family members around the country. Just when all seems lost, Jack begins to recover in a miraculous turn of events. He rises from what should have been his deathbed, determined to bring his fractured family back together. Struggling to rebuild their lives after Lizzie’s death, he reunites everyone at Lizzie’s childhood home on the oceanfront in South Carolina. And there, over one unforgettable summer, Jack will begin to learn to love again, and he and his children will learn how to become a family once more.
Plan to join the discussion on the blog or on Facebook in a closed group on June 27!
