When Tessa’s husband passes away, she has a hard time imagining she can ever be happy again. But when her mom suggests they take her children to spend August at the beach—the same beach where Tessa had enjoyed so many youthful holidays—she knows the break is exactly what they all need. Once there, she slowly heals, and enjoys memories of her first love—her summer love—Daniel.
Maybe this month at the beach will bring her more than mere memories...
In this sweet story of new beginnings, Tessa is learning to rebuild her life after the death of her husband. In need of some quiet and rest, she takes her family to the beach where she spent her days as a young teen girl. She is bombarded by memories of a happier time and healing begins to slowly soothe the pain.
This story was so adorable and believable. It didn’t jump to a happily-ever-after, but allowed you to see the struggle and heartache of losing a loved one. It showed that time is needed to heal the wounds, but that there is joy to be found around the corner.
There was a feeling of hope and rainbows that left the reader believing in the promise of brighter tomorrows.
