They have the whole summer ahead of them. Is it enough to rekindle the friendship they once shared?
Harriet Greenleaf dreams of spending the summer in a beautiful ancient priory on the Somerset coast with her two best friends—but her dream is bittersweet. On the one hand, it’s a chance to reconnect three lives that have drifted apart; on the other, she has a devastating secret to share that will change everything between them forever.
First to arrive is Audrey—the workaholic who’s heading for a heart attack unless she slows down and makes time for herself. Then Lisa, the happy-go-lucky flirt who’s always struggled to commit to anyone—or anything. Ever the optimist, can Harriet remind them of the joy in their lives and the importance of celebrating good friendship before it’s gone?
Through the highs and lows of a long, glorious summer, these three women will rediscover what it means to be there for each other—before they face the hardest of goodbyes.
Harriet has to go away soon. Her wish is to celebrate good memories with her best friends Audrey and Lisa. The last six years they hadn’t much been together and now Harriet is inviting them to stay at an imposant priory at Somerset coast. This summer the priority is enjoying their friendship and finding peace at a harmonious place.
Harriet didn’t let anything coming between their visit and thought of everything. Everybody has to calm down now and have to forget work for a time. Priorities are changed instantly when every day is a gift.
Audrey and Lisa are sometimes having trouble to set the pause button on. Six weeks, no TV, no work that sounds very dull for Audrey. Nonetheless, at this holiday they have to find peace with themselves. Audrey has to take better care of herself and Lisa has to find some balance in her lovelife.
Harriet has never told her friends why this trip is so special. During their stay sometimes situations are difficult and it is obvious that saying goodbye not easy is.
The lovely personalities with their own sores and amazing characters, the hilarious dialogues with newly discovered friends and the sad moments, those combination is a winner in One last Summer.
Even though the secret is hard to cope with and the reality is undeniable, this book is not a tearjerker. One last summer is a beautiful celebration of the true spirit of friendship and love and is a thought provoking novel.
