Publisher's Summary

“The ultimate road-trippin’ beach read and just what we all need after the long lockdown.” (Booklist, starred review)

The Summer Seekers is the ultimate road trip book.” (Susan Wiggs, number-one New York Times best-selling author)

Get swept into a summer of sunshine, soul-searching, and shameless matchmaking with this delightfully bighearted road-trip adventure by USA Today best-selling author Sarah Morgan!

Kathleen is 80 years old. After she has a run-in with an intruder, her daughter wants her to move into a residential home. But she’s not having any of it. What she craves—what she needs—is adventure.

Liza is drowning in the daily stress of family life. The last thing she needs is her mother jetting off on a wild holiday, making Liza long for a solo summer of her own.

Martha is having a quarter-life crisis. Unemployed, unloved, and uninspired, she just can’t get her life together. But she knows something has to change.

When Martha sees Kathleen’s advertisement for a driver and companion to share an epic road trip across America with, she decides this job might be the answer to her prayers. She's not the world's best driver, but anything has to be better than living with her parents. And traveling with a stranger? No problem. Anyway, how much trouble can one 80-year-old woman be?

As these women embark on the journey of a lifetime, they all discover it's never too late to start over....

Don't miss Beach House Summer, the ultimate beach story by USA Today best-selling author Sarah Morgan! One woman forges the most unlikely friendship of all, and embarks on a summer of confronting her past in order to build the future she wants.

Great story odd American accent

My only complaint for this book would be the oddly southern accent of the Americans despite living in California. It was weird

Loved this journey of love & restoration!

Forty-year-old Liza doesn’t have a whole lot of free time, but lately she’s been using those moments worrying that her marriage is in trouble. Between working, twin teenage daughters, and a never-ending to-do list, there’s no time for herself let alone her marriage. Liza feels overwhelmed and unappreciated, and I was ticked off on her behalf!

Eighty-year-old Kathleen is being pressured by her daughter, Liza, to sell her beloved home by the sea and move into a residential home. Kathleen has always been an independent woman, she traveled the globe for her show, The Summer Seekers, and she has no intention of giving in. After a wake-up call, Kathleen decides it’s time for another trip, this time to the States driving the historic Route 66. Now all she needs is a driver and this is where Martha comes in.
Martha is living back at home after a few setbacks. She’s reminded constantly of her “bad choices” by her family and it’s chipping away at her soul. When she stumbles upon Kathleen’s ad she jumps at the chance for employment and escape

This story and these women touched my heart! I felt a connection to all of them! I think most can relate to the situations these women found themselves in: What it feels like to be an overwhelmed wife and mother, to question choices and keep oneself at arm’s length for emotional protection. These characters were far from perfect and had made mistakes. Most notable to me was Kathleen and her relationship with her daughter, a bit distant and seemingly cold on her part, but as her story was revealed I could understand how she got there. Liza’s story really spoke to me as a wife and mother, but I found all the stories emotionally compelling.

I can’t talk about The Summer Seekers without mentioning the setting and how vividly it came to life though the author’s talented writing! Oakwood, Kathleen’s home on the Cornish coast sounded beautiful and full of character. I’d never want to sell either! The road trip on Route 66, with all the regional charms made me eager to embark on a road trip of my own!

The Summer Seekers was such a realistic and heartwarming story! The perfect summer read! There’s self-discovery, a bit of romance and a restoration of love and understanding. I loved their journeys to happiness!

Georgina Sutton's performance was perfection!

Could not listen

I enjoyed another Sarah Morgan book recently so bought this one thinking it would be as enjoyable. The premise sounded fun. But the narrator is impossible. Her British accent is so heavy (I don't know another description) that I can't understand half of what she's saying. I'm going to return this. I'll get the book so I can enjoy it.

Give it a whirl n suspend your belief

I would recommend I found it interesting in the beginning I almost gave up on it but I had to suspend my belief in the fiction of the elderly protagonist and finally accept her and once I did that it was fun. I really enjoyed the little tour on route 66 and the character differences that were portrayed and life issues overcome.
