The Summer Seekers by Sarah Morgan is an amazing, moving, emotional tale of three women, three generations, each having a crisis with how their life is at the moment. Join these women on adventurous road trip with laugh-out-humor, understanding, forgiveness, self-reflection, and emotional healing, and a reminder that life is too short for anyone not to grab a fresh start on life, no matter what age they might be. Warning: keep tissues nearby. Kathleen might be eighty years old, living alone in the countryside, but after s an encounter with an intruder her daughter fears for her safety and wants her to move into a residential home. Kathleen is a very independent women and refuses; craving an adventure like she used to have. Liza has tried to understand her mother, but that bond never formed. Liza is a take control person, taking care of everyone else, never herself. The daily stress of her family life and demands is overwhelming her and the last thing she needs is her mother jetting off on a crazy holiday with a stranger. All of this is making Liza long for a summer by herself; no demands, no picking up after her twin teen daughters or busy husband. Martha is having her own crisis, despite only being in her twenties. She is a kind soul who took care of her ailing grandmother, helps her elderly neighbors yet is unemployed, unloved, and unable to please her parents. Martha has no idea how to get her life together or what she wants to do with her life, and with low self-esteem and constantly being treated like the help it’s hard to get inspired. She knows something has to change but has no idea how to make the change. Seeing Kathleen’s advertisement for a driver and companion to share an epic road trip across America might just be the answer to Martha’s prayers. As these women embark on the journey of a lifetime, they will discover it's never too late to start living life as they have dreamed of. Ms. Morgan wrote a story that illustrated the soul and growth of her characters. I loved this wonderful, heartwarming, multi-generational story, which I could not put down. I highly recommend The Summer Seekers to other readers and it should be on everyone’s summer reading list. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
