My rating: (4 / 5)
The title seemed fitting to take on as a vacation read, and so this was number two in my bag that was toted along on our trip north this year, tucked away to be read under the summer sunshine.
The Summerhouse is a light read about second chances. What would you do differently if you could have a “re-do” on the most pivotal time in your life? Could you choose a particular two weeks where your life could be altered for the better by a few different steps? And even if you could live a different life, would you trade what you have now, or who you are now, for a different you on a different path? Three friends who haven’t seen one another in twenty years come together at a friend’s summer house for a reunion and a run-in with a local psychic who gives them the opportunity to have a second shot at one short interval in their lives, and the choice to live the lives they have, or with the consequences of their hindsight-is-twenty-twenty choices.
This is a fun book, lighthearted, and an easy read.
