Descripción

Early on the morning of her eleventh birthday, on the beach beside her North Carolina home, Daria Cato receives an unbelievable gift from the sea: an abandoned newborn baby. When the infant's identity cannot be uncovered, she is adopted by Daria's loving family.



Now, twenty years later, Shelly has grown into an unusual, ethereal young woman whom Daria continues to protect. But when Rory Taylor, a friend from Daria's childhood and now a television producer, returns at Shelly's request to do a story about the circumstances surrounding her birth, something precarious shifts in the small town of Kill Devil Hills. The more questions Rory asks, the more unsettled the tiny community becomes, as closely guarded secrets and the sins of that long-ago summer begin to surface. Piece by piece, the mystery of summer's child is being exposed, a mystery that no one involved-not Shelly, Daria, not even Rory-is prepared to face.

    I have read almost all books by this author and this one was my favorite so far. You think you have it figured out early on but throughout the story surprises keep lurling around the corner. Likeable characters, strong plot, nice setting, overall a great read. One summer an 11yr old finds a newborn on the beach. Fast forward 22 years and the reader is thrown into the life of Shelly and her adoptive family. Shelly is now a young adult who wants to find out how she came to be deserted on the beach.

    An amazing and captivating novel!
  • (5/5)
    Great story but the audio was done poorly. The end of each chapter cut off in mid sentence.

    Otherwise it was great!

    Well written, during this pandemic, gentle on my soul. Loved it.

    After completing Summer’s Child by Diane Chamberlain, I’m not sure how I actually feel about this story. On so many levels, I thought it was terribly contrived in the twists and turns that the author presented, almost to the point of my feeling annoyed by the author’s manipulation throughout the novel. Needless to say, I did not anticipate the resolution to the story, and by then, I was slightly fed up by the dysfunctional group of characters and the choices that they made. I’m sure that this scenario could indeed be reality to some families, but as far as I was concerned, I thought that the author got carried away in trying to lead the reader astray. Nevertheless, I will say that Diane Chamberlain continues to present an enticing story that captivates the reader throughout. She is a master storyteller who certainly knows how to weave an interesting tale. As I read this book, I recalled a previous phone conversation that our book club held with her. During the conversation she stated that she used a storyboard to map out her novels prior to writing. Upon reading Summer’s Child, I could not help but whimsically imagine the complexity of such a storyboard for this particular novel.
