Dear Reader

A few years ago, my wife’s ex-boyfriend from England came to visit for a few days. We got on fine, but I thought…”What if?” And that was the inspiration for The Best of Adam Sharp.

It’s not a simple love story like The Rosie Project: things get complicated when you’re older. But, you should recognize the male point of view, the humor, and hopefully the heart. And it has a classic rock soundtrack.

Dear Reader,

My first two novels took readers to Paris. With my third, I hope to transport you to summertime in Nantucket. The story was inspired by an article about the erosion of the island’s bluff and shoreline.

In The Book of Summer, physician Bess Codman has returned to her family’s Nantucket compound for the first time in four years. Her great-grandparents built Cliff House almost a century before, but due to erosion, the once-grand home will soon fall into the sea. Though she’s avoided visiting, Bess must now pack up the house and deal with her mother, a notorious town rabble-rouser, who refuses to leave.

The secrets of Cliff House’s past are told through Ruby Packard, an idealistic newlywed on the eve of WWII, and the home’s definitive guestbook, known as “The Book of Summer.” Ruby always said theirs was a house of women, and by the very last day of the very last summer at Cliff House, Bess will understand the truth of her grandmother’s words in ways she never contemplated.

Dear Reader,

Against the backdrop of the Sonoran Desert, Lynne Hartke asks the hard questions as cancer arrives to take it all. As her days become a blur of appointments and treatments, she wrestles with tangled emotions and a shaken faith. And then, the unthinkable as cancer threatens the lives of both her parents.

With a lyrical voice, Hartke learns that even in life’s hardest places, she was not alone in her fear, not foolish to hope, and never forgotten by a loving God.
