Book Review

THE SUMMER WIND
by Mary Alice Monroe

Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction

RT Rating

The second book in Monroe’s Lowcountry Summer trilogy is pleasant and furthers the storyline of the sisters, but it doesn’t contain a great deal of substance. This installment focuses a bit more on Dora than the other two women, and those portions of the story, as well as the parts featuring dolphins, are the most interesting and well plotted.

Returning home from Florida, Carson has some serious decisions to make. Meanwhile, Dora is struggling trying to balance caring for her autistic son, supervising the remodeling of her previous home in order to sell it, and dealing with her soon-to-be-ex and his demands. Dora herself seems to be lost in the shuffle of it all. Harper is beginning to discover her own personality and tentatively makes strides in that area. Mamaw hopes that the girls can form a true sisterly bond before the summer ends and they go their separate ways. (GALLERY, Jun., 320 pp., $27.00)
