The Best Summer of Our Lives, by Rachel Hauck
- Author: Rachel Hauck
Twenty years ago, the summer of '77 was supposed to be the best summer of Summer Wilde's life. She and her best friends, Spring, Autumn, and Snow, known as the Four Seasons, had big plans.
Those plans never stood a chance. A teenage prank sent the Seasons on a bus to Tumbleweed, "Nowhere", Oklahoma, to spend eight weeks as camp counselors. All four arrived with hidden secrets and buried fears, and those two months changed their friendships and their lives.
Now, thirty-something, Summer is at a crossroads. When her latest girl band leaves her in a motel outside Tulsa, she is forced to face the shadows of her past. Returning to the place where everything changed, she soon learns Tumbleweed is more than a town she never wanted to see again. It's a place for healing, for reconciling the past with the present, and for finally listening to love's voice.
