Her family's cottage about to be sold?
Adie Lou couldn’t do it...The Summer Cottage had too many memories.
Instead of selling the cottage, Adie Lou decided to turn it into a bed and breakfast and a retreat for women.
We follow Adie Lou as she moves through getting a divorce, struggling with her decision to keep the cottage, having the cottage updated and made into what she wanted, and hoping she can make ends meet.
THE SUMMER COTTAGE had me in tears at times because of the sad but mostly the happy things.
Each section of the book was titled as one of the positive rules of the cottage.
They were rules that we all should incorporate into our daily lives especially #1 Leave Your Troubles at The Door.
Viola Shipman has created another beautiful story about family, friendships, and what is important in life. I fell in love with Adie Lou, the cottage, Michigan, and the story line, and I think anyone who reads this book will too.
Viola Shipman writes so beautifully, with such warmth, and in such detail that you'll clearly see the cottage, the cottage's history, the characters, and even feel the frigid Michigan temperatures.
The writing and story line made me want to jump into the pages and to be at the cottage so I could be part of the love and warmth the characters had for each other, the cozy feel of the small town, and the love Adie Lou had for THE SUMMER COTTAGE.
If you need a positive, uplifting read, THE SUMMER COTTAGE should be your next read.
It is a huge, emotional hug....LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book. 5/5
This book was given to me as an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
