About the book
Ava Johnson has had a decade of wild living in Atlanta and now she’s returning to her home town of Idylwild in Michigan, her fabulous career plans in tatters. Ava is certain that Idylwild is the end of the road for her, but instead it turns out to be a new beginning. She falls for Eddie, a tough, but tai-chi-practising, Vietnam veteran; she rediscovers her relationship with her recently widowed sister Joyce; she supports the town’s teenage mothers. But Ava also makes enemies. The Reverend and his formidable wife seem determined to drive her out of town. But what secrets are they hiding?
Reviewed by Abbotts Ann reading group:
We all enjoyed this book very much. Characterisation excellent and it made us all want to go to sit by the lake in Idlewild. Good ending.
