A Month of Summer 

Booklist Review: After a call from the Dallas police, Rebecca Macklin leaves her family and law practice in California to return to her childhood home to deal with her estranged father, who is suffering from Alzheimers disease. She has built up a lifetime of resentment toward her father after he divorced her mother and married Hannah Beth. Arriving at the house, she finds everything in disarray and Hannah Beth recovering in the nursing home from a debilitating stroke. Hannah Beths mentally disabled sons simple joy starts to thaw the resentment that Rebecca has built up for decades, and she is torn as she takes care of her father, who confuses her with her mother, and desperately misses her own family even though there are problems with her marriage. With her signature gentle spiritualism, Wingate sheds light on the toll that aging and disease take on families as she launches a new series with broad appeal. --Patty Engelmann
