Publisher's Summary

A widowed grandmother ready to spread her wings. A 12-year-old granddaughter looking for a summertime adventure. Together, they are going to attempt the impossible.

In Charleston, South Carolina, the summer of 1964, Ida Trueluck moves into her son's house after losing her beloved husband of 40 years. Living with her son's family is quite an adjustment - her daughter-in-law is a bit uptight - and she's trying to figure out who she is on her own.

Her saving grace is her 12-year-old granddaughter Trudy. Smart and feisty, Trudy and her best friend Vel - short for Velvet, who wears all pink and is a Nancy Drew wannabee - are trying to figure out what to do on their summer vacation. When a black boy named Paris saves Trudy from being crushed by a runaway Sunbeam Bread truck, they become friends.

Navigating a multi-racial friendship in 1964 is no easy thing, however. The racism they encounter inspires them to go on an audacious adventure: to take down the Confederate flag that flies atop the South Carolina State House. And they can't do it without the help of Trudy's grandmother, Ida.

If you like funny, heart-warming southern stories, you'll love the unforgettable characters in this captivating novel by Amazon number one best-selling author Susan Gabriel, about the courage friends and family inspire in each other and the risks and rewards of trying to make the world a better place.

    "A Summer of Memories"

    I loved the premise of this book, the way the characters were written and depth of the Grandmother's love. I probably related must closely with the Grandmother but there were times I remember those feelings of the granddaughter.

    I sincerely appreciate that Holly Adams was chosen to narrate this book as she once again took me into the magic of the story as the characters gained life in my mind. She has done this for me in many of the other books she has narrated. She seems to have a special understanding of families and the relationships that come through her narration.

    I'm exceptionally glad this book entered my life this particular summer. It was my first time with this author but I know there will be more.

    Some books I choose specifically because I know the narrator will always find the path that will open up the story for me. Holly Adams is one of those narrators for me.

    I highly recommend this book in audible form and any format that is your favorite
