Summer’s List 
"Summer's List"
Anita Higman

A dying wish alters the course of a young woman’s life.
Life hadn’t been easy for Summer Snow. In acts of selflessness-caring for her ailing parents and running her grandmother’s bookstore-she had forfeited her youth and dreams for the needs of others. And the only tries she had at love… didn’t turn out. She had the bookstore, she had her beloved granny, but she was missing something-or someone.
Opportunity strikes when Granny sends Summer on an unexpected adventure with one Martin Langtree, a kind but gangly young man from Summer’s past. A childhood friendship is rekindled, a romance is sparked, and mysteries are solved in one magical Texas summer. Will Summer strike out on love again, or will things finally go her way?

I've always enjoyed Anita Higman's writing and this book wasn't any different.  She always creates realistic, yet unique characters that you can somehow always relate to.  While this book is fiction, most of it is still very realistic in the things that we may deal with on a daily basis.  But how we deal with them is the important part. 

There were some areas that were a bit strange to me and made me ask "why?"  (Martin's family)  I wish they wouldn't have been so dramatically mean and strange.  

"Summer's List" reminds us that even though life doesn't happen as we think it should, doesn't mean that God has forgotten or abandoned us.  He is still in control and He always works things out.
