Summer's Child
Mass Market  Mass Market  
From Luanne Rice, the celebrated author of Beach Girls and many other New York Times bestsellers, comes this powerful novel of a mystery, a love affair, and a bond that cannot be broken set in a seaside town where miracles are made....

On the first night of summer, Leila Jameson went out to water her garden–and was never seen again. Years after her disappearance, no one could forget the expectant mother whose glowing smile had captured the heart of a nation–especially not those who’d known her: Maeve Jameson, still mourning the loss of a granddaughter she had struggled to protect…Mark Murphy, a dogged police detective obsessed with a vanished woman... and Lily Malone, drawn to the rugged beauty of the Nova Scotia coast and its promise of a new life. Here Lily hopes to raise her eight-year-old daughter, Rose, far from the pain and loss of the past. Here she will meet a gifted teacher, Liam Neill, whose life is on a similar trajectory from heartbreak to hope. And before the season is over, Lily will find the magic that exists in people we love the best…the everyday miracles that can make the extraordinary happen anywhere.
