Summer of Joy

summer of joy



As summer draws to a close Jocie’s world seems serene–but is it just the calm before a storm?

Unbeknownst to Jocie Brooke and her family, two people are making their way to the small town of Hollyhill, Kentucky. One everyone thought was gone for good and the other no one’s ever heard of. Still, one thing is sure–they promise trouble. The past is coming to call, threatening to destroy strong relationships that everyone has simply taken for granted.

The summer of 1964 may be winding down, but the controversy in this little community where nothing ever seems to change is just heating up.

Bestselling author Ann Gabhart invites you to Hollyhill for a story both exciting and enduring that will stick with you long after you turn the last page.



I enjoyed this book so much, it is just a sweet story! After struggling through several problems in the small community of Hollyhill, Kentucky, things seem be simmering down and everyone is looking forward to hear of wedding plans. But can David find the nerve to ask the could be bride?

And just when David thinks things are calm and quiet, and he’s overcoming his nervousness, the past comes back to haunt him. The community is again in a whirlwind when two people show up unexpectedly. Join the fun as you follow the journey of these realistic and believable characters!

Another wonderful story from Ann H. Gabhart, full of family, friend, love and just enjoyable characters.
