A Year with the Harrisons (Paperback--328 pages)
It’s summer in Midville, Texas, and Letty Harrison’s back from college. She and her sisters, Luna and Lamia, live in a sleepy old white house that bears a strange resemblance to an obscure bed-and-breakfast. But peace and quiet are rare where this family of grown-up homeschooled girls is involved. Crippled Luna can’t hide in the house forever, enigmatic Lamia is up to her own business right and left, and the new pastor, Dr. Bunsen, is bringing an argument about music that’s almost as intense as the bad impression Letty seems to have made on hyper-sensitive David Gark.
Then there’s the little girl who’s staying with the Harrisons because her mother, a restaurant owner who happens to be their father’s cousin, is reconnecting with her mother, Brenda. Brenda Hilligan is a famous singer with a past she’d rather not remember—and that Letty’s father might know about. And when the man who is Brenda’s nemesis turns out to be the father of the friendly young athlete Letty has met at college, the lives of four families interconnect in a heartwarming drama of adventure, hope, and Texas sunshine.
