Summer of the Loon is the story of a teen girl, Ali, whose life has changed dramatically and she must now live with a grandfather she has never met. We watch as the two try desperately to connect but fall short time and time again. In the midst of this, Ali finds herself falling in love for the first time, much to the irritation of her grandfather. It is a heartwarming story of family trying to reconnect and break the bad memories of the past to create new ones.

"This was by far one of the best stories that I have read in a very long time. It touched on every emotion and definitely had me keep turning the pages. It was so difficult to put the kindle down every time I had to do some thing in 'real life'. I found myself very invested in the characters and the story." - Reader Review

From the author of Maggie's Turn and Sara's Promise comes a heartwarming story of family and first love.

Life can change in a heartbeat…

Ali Jenson's life changed forever the moment her mother died. The sixteen-year-old was suddenly swept away from the life she knew in California to live with her estranged grandfather in the deep woods of northern Minnesota. Ali's life has never been easy, but it seems her grandfather is trying his best to make it even more difficult. Her only hope is to get through the summer and her last year of high school so she can return to her old life in California. What she hadn't counted on, though, was slowly becoming attached to the grumpy old man and falling in love for the very first time.

Benjamin Jenson never planned on meeting his granddaughter, let alone having her live with him. He wasn't thrilled with the idea of a teenaged girl coming into his home or his life. He'd been down that path once before, and he didn't want to relive it again. But he is her only living relative, and he knew his deceased wife, Lizzie, would have wanted him to give Ali a home. Grudgingly, he figured he could put up with the girl for a year. He never expected Ali to find a way into his heart and make him face painful past memories and his worst fear. The fear of losing yet another person he loves.

Will Ben finally put away the past and give Ali the one thing she's always dreamed of? A home.
