Overview


DO TEENAGE GIRLS COME WITH INSTRUCTION MANUALS?

The call came out of the blue—Annie's sister Dana is in rehab…can her thirteen-year-old daughter come stay in Maine with Annie? But the wild child in black and piercings is not the sweet little girl Annie remembers.

So much for the new pink towels.

Surly, sullen and scared, Summer puts a gigantic wedge between Annie and her lover, her friends, even her wonderful ex-motherin-law. Yet Annie has always described herself as a dandelion: not the prettiest flower perhaps, but the most determined and resilient. She refuses to give up on Summer. As days become weeks, downs (slowly!) become ups and risks turn into rewards. And for Annie, the long walk home to what matters most has been worth every step.

    strong character driven tale

    Her husband who walked on water in her mind died eighteen months ago, but not before Annie learned he betrayed her trust in him. Moving on Annie Jacobs has become the vice president of the loan department at Portland National Bank. Before she can settle in her new position, her estranged sister Dana calls to ask a favor while she is in rehab, can her teenage daughter Summer stay with her aunt in Maine? Reluctantly Annie agrees. --- Annie is shocked when the teen dressed totally in black arrives. Summer is sullen and nasty towards everyone including Annie, her lover Tony Marino and her two best friends. Everyone tells Annie not to put up with the garbage and ship the ungrateful punk home. However, Annie sees a frightened child trusting no adult as neither her mom nor her aunt have ever been there for this neglected Goth teen. Annie plans to change that by taking the guff, but also showering her niece with tough love as they both begin to heal with the help of one another. --- This is a strong character driven tale starring two people hurt and betrayed by those who they respectively love the most in the world. Summer is a fabulous character as Diane Amos provides the audience with a powerful look into a distraught disengaged teen. Though some of the plot seems off kilter to the personalities of the lead pair, readers who appreciate an insightful family drama will want to take A LONG WALK HOME with Annie and Summer. --- Harriet Klausner

    Heartfelt and believable...

    was touched by the relationships within the book and the author's ability to carry each thread through without losing the integrity of the characters. The weary, young girl looking for stability, the set-in-her-ways matriarch with the best of intentions if not the most open of views, and the woman who holds all three generations together through shear tenacity. Mrs. Amos' voice is strong and her characters stronger and in my estimation, A Long Walk Home is the closest to what I perceived the NEXT line to be about.
