Read The Summer That Made Us Online Free - Mothers and daughters, sisters and cousins--they lived for summers at the lake house until a tragic accident changed everything. The Summer That Made Us is an unforgettable story about a family learning to accept the past, to forgive and to love each other again. That was then... For the Hempsteads, two sisters who married two brothers and had three daughters each, summers were idyllic. The women would escape the city the moment school was out to gather at the family house on Lake Waseka. The lake was a magical place, a haven where they were happy and carefree. All of their problems drifted away as the days passed in sun-dappled contentment. Until the summer that changed everything. This is now... After an accidental drowning turned the lake house into a site of tragedy and grief, it was closed up. For good. Torn apart, none of the Hempstead women speak of what happened that summer, and relationships between them are uneasy at best to hurtful at worst. But in the face of new challenges, one woman is determined to draw her family together again, and the only way that can happen is to return to the lake and face the truth. Robyn Carr has crafted a beautifully woven story about the complexities of family dynamics and the value of strong female relationships.

Wow this book was such an emotional read, way more than I was expecting it to be! There were highs and lows, ups and downs and I loved every minute of getting to know the dysfunctional Hempstead family. When I say dysfunctional I’m not even sure that word accurately describes things, this is...

The Summer that made us didn't quite make it with me.
I have read most or Robyn Carr's books and this one is my least favorite of all of them. For some reason I didn't find myself as absorbed in the story. The premise is good. A family spent their summers at their summer home. They were happy and...

This story was really chick-lit with a touch of romance that just pulled me in with all the dysfunctional people and relationships. I so like Robyn Carr's style of writing that feels like constant motion even when characters reminisce. Charley just lost her job and her cousin Megan who is battlin...

In all honesty, I did not enjoy The Summer That Made Us as much as...
