May Taylor works as a wedding planner with her best friend and great-aunt, passing on the timeless traditions established by her grandmother and mother. The Taylor women have always believed in the presence of magic in everyday life—especially the simple magic of true love and family.

Yet May's own faith in true love was destroyed years ago when she was abandoned by the father of her child. Still, she has found joy in raising her daughter Kylie—a special five-year-old who sees and hears things that others cannot. Her unique visions will lead May to a love she never expected and a life she never imagined.

It is Kylie who first glimpses the role Martin will play in May's life and her own. May and Martin feel an immediate attraction, but each fears being hurt again. Yet the intensity of their connection leads them to begin to believe in a shared future.

But just as happiness as a family seems within reach, Martin's past threatens to tear them all apart. Only Kylie sees the way home—and only May can lead them there, if she can somehow finally believe that miracles can come true....

Deftly illuminating the everlasting bonds among mothers, daughters, fathers, and sons, Luanne Rice celebrates life's simple pleasures and the joy of meeting the one person you are destined to love forever.Summer Lightis a moving tribute to the enduring power of love and an exhilarating testament to the magic always at work in the world for those with the courage to see it.

It was okay. The main guy character was a little too macho for me, but I'm always game for a love story. Read full review
