I Praise this Author
This author took on a very complicated project that included several important issues that in themselves would be difficult to write about and do it well. Ms. Flaherty has done this brilliantly.
She has created strong characters who experience challenges and face them with humor as well as bravery.
A book that could have been depressing is in fact extremely entertaining.
I highly recommend this one.

800 Miles of Entertainment
I listened to this book on a 950 mile trip and it kept me entertained for 800 miles, until the book finished. I can't say that this was a light-hearted, Happily-Ever-After book because it was more of a real-life story. It addressed some tough subjects, but I thought it was enjoyable, even with my tears.
One More Summer never lost my attention and I never became bored with the characters. Grace was definitely damaged but Ms Flaherty wrote her as a fragile but tough and caring woman. The secondary characters were likable people with very human flaws.
The narrator did a good job and that is always a plus.
I do recommend this book but be sure to have your hankie out and be ready to cry.
