    Karen and Val are family - yet they're anything but close. Karen has carried the burden of responsibility for her aging mother ever since her gorgeous sister left town years ago to pursue a career in theater. But Val had darker reasons for leaving town - as well as a secret to keep - and coming home has never been an option...until their mother suffers a stroke. Reunited in their hometown, Karen and Val must grapple with their past mistakes, their relationship with each other, and their issues with a mother who is far from ideal.

    California Reader says: "Another excellent book by Irene Hannon"

    Story
    Would you listen to That Certain Summer again? Why?

    Yes, the story flowed well between the two main characters and their potential love interests. Although there was romance, I enjoyed the relationship between the sisters more than courtships.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of That Certain Summer?

    The most memorable moment was the mother's letter to her unborn child that Val read at the rehearsal. Abortion is a key issue that Irene Hannon deals with in a sensitive manner.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the entire book. The scene when Val met with the minister and finally began to forgave herself was especially touching.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Facing the past
