Descripción

Three college roommates are celebrating a twentieth wedding anniversary by taking a cruise to Bermuda. As the ship pulls away from the pier, everyone is looking forward to lounging by the pool, sipping sunset cocktails, and reminiscing. Abby, the mother hen of the group, will be celebrating her wedding anniversary in style, even as she and her husband keep a secret from the group. Ambitious career woman Caroline happily anticipates several stress-free days away from her magazine job with her boyfriend, Javier, who may or may not be finally inspired to propose. And single mom Lee (annoyingly gorgeous and irresistibly popular in college) hopes she'll win back the affections of her formerly sweet daughter Lacey, who after her first year in college, has inexplicably become a little bit of a monster.

As the balmy pink shores of Bermuda come into view, tensions simmer, and old jealousies flare, sending the temperature from soothing to scorching in this engrossing tale of three best friends on a vacation they won't soon forget—but not for the reasons they expect.

    Three college friends getting together for their yearly catch-up decided on a cruise paid for by Abby and her husband.Abby had a loving husband, twin boys, and a secret.Lee was a single mother with a college-aged daughter who had problems of her own.Caroline was single and hoping her boyfriend of three years would propose to her on the cruise.All the characters worked well with each other. Ms. Francis made each character come alive with most being likable.The story line was pleasant and made you want to go on a cruise to Bermuda as well as think about all your blessings.If you need a pick me up and an idea for getting back together with friends from your younger years, THE SUMMER SAIL will make you want to give your best girlfriends a call and suggest meeting. THE SUMMER SAIL was a lovely change of pace for me. This book is about love, friendship, caring, and learning to live life to the fullest. There were some nice quotes to think about as well. ENJOY when you read THE SUMMER SAIL. 4/5This book was given to me as an ARC by the author. All opinions are my own.

    The idea of celebrating a 20th anniversary and renewal of vows via a cruise certainly fits the bill for a good summer beachy read. Abby and her college roommates have made a point of getting together over the years. Even though their personal lives have taken different directions, they find the time together rejuvenating. Abby decides to host everyone on a Bermuda cruise to celebrate her and her husband, Sam's twentieth anniversary, while keeping secret from their family and friends some future hardship. Although I have never been on a cruise, I found the descriptions of daily life on board the ship to be interesting and the descriptions of Bermuda to be stunning. Career driven Caroline and single mom Lee round out the trio. Everyone has something to both hide and share it seems, during this year's reunion of friends.

    My Review of ” The Summer Sail” by Wendy Francis Published by Touchstone May, 2018“The Summer Sail” by Wendy Francis is a perfect enjoyable summer read. What more could you ask for in a novel about friends and cruising to the sea and surf in beautiful Bermuda? I love the author’s scenic descriptions of the landscape on the boat, in the water, and on the land. The Genres of this novel are Fiction and Women’s Fiction.The timeline of this story is in the present and goes back to the past or mentions the future when it pertains to the events or the characters.Wendy Francis describes her colorful cast of characters as complex, troubled, secretive, and loyal. This is a wonderful book about friends and sisterhood. Three college roommates meet together with their families and significant others on a cruise to celebrate one of their twentieth Anniversary Wedding Celebrations.Many things have changed ,yet stayed the same in the twenty years span for the friends. Abby and her husband Sam along with their twin teenage sons are celebrating twenty years of being married by taking her friends on a cruise. Caroline in now a high-profile Magazine writer and is with her boyfriend Javier. Caroline is hoping for a proposal, but is Javier, who has been with her three years on board with that? Single Mom Lee, is trying to stabilize her relationship with her daughter Lacey, who has changed since her first year of college.This is a heartwarming, captivating and endearing story of friendship, sisterhood, family, love, faith and hope. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy Woman’s Literature.

    The Summer SailByWendy FrancisWhat it's all about...Three former college roommates...Abby, Caroline and Lee...set sail on a cruise to Bermuda. They are taking with them their families and all of their issues. The cruise is to celebrate the 20 year marriage of Abby and her husband Sam. Abby has something she needs to share with everyone at the end of the trip. Caroline has a goal, too...to finally get her boyfriend to commit to marriage. Lee has a different goal...she wants to fix the unsatisfactory relationship she now has with her daughter. Why I wanted to read it...The idea of a Bermuda cruise and the story of three friends reuniting for it was very appealing. It’s summer and sand and food and fun. It’s also the story of each family’s connectedness. Abby has a weight to bear...Caroline wants a committed relationship and Lee needs to learn how to become close to her daughter again. What made me truly enjoy this book...The stories and friends meshed beautifully. The flow of this book was sweet and smooth. It was a relaxing book to read. Why you should read it, too...Readers who love a summery kind of book about different kinds of relationships should really love this book. I received an advance reader’s copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley and Amazon. It was my choice to read it and review it.

    Love, love, love this cover. Who does not love a cover which looks like instant relaxation!Three college friends and their families are setting sail on a cruise to Bermuda, basically to celebrate the renewal of vows for Abby and her husband. This turns into a trip to remember.This is a quick, good, all around beach read. And to tell you the truth, I have no idea what was so great about it. It really is a normal beach read about life, family, friends. Nothing special. But, I was captivated! All the way through.Each character brings a different story into the mix. Caroline and her boyfriend Javier..is he going to propose? Single mom Lee and her college aged daughter Lacey…is she pregnant? And then there is Abby with her twins and her great husband…what is wrong with Abby? On top of all these questions, the setting of the cruise ship and Bermuda just kept me glued to the pages.All the characters compliment each other and really give this story the kick you need to start off BEACH SEASON! HOORAY!I received this novel from Edelweiss for a honest review
