Overview

From the author of A Month of Summer, an inspiring new novel in the Blue Sky Hill series about one woman's effect on a struggling Dallas neighborhood.

With her adopted son missing and the rest of her family increasingly estranged, Sandra Kaye Darden is drawn to the little pink house where her Uncle Poppy once provided security. What begins for Sandra as a simple painting project, meant to prepare the house for sale, becomes a secret venture that eventually changes everything.

Cass Blue is having trouble keeping food on the table since she ditched foster care. When Sandra Kaye shows up with lunch one day, Cass has no way of knowing that the meeting will lead to the creation of a place of refuge that could reunite a divided community.

In this moving story of second chances, two unlikely allies realize their ability to make a difference...and the power of what becomes known as the Summer Kitchen to nourish the soul.

    Deep, meaningful, Excellent!

    I began reading The Summer Kitchen because our book club was reading it, but I'm also a fan of Lisa Wingate's books. The Summer kitchen is the sort of read that makes you think and makes you look at the people around you differently. In today's difficult times, this book has a lot to say to those of us who may be too focused on perfection or material possessions. I also enjoyed the spunk of Cass, the young runaway in the book, who values reading and books, even while trying to deal with the trials of everyday survival with no parents to take care of her. Lisa Wingate does a fantastic job of taking you into the minds and hearts of her characters. This is a read that will stay with you long after you read the book. The characters and situations are realistic, and the ending tied up in a way that was real, yet satisfying and hopeful. Excellent read!

    Quick and Light

    There were some good messages in this book: 1. Making you think about how you judge people by the way they look, where they live, etc 2. No matter what your problems are, there's always someone whose situation is worse 3. Things can look perfect on the surface (doctor's family) but that not be how things really are.

    I liked the idea of going to your "mind place" to escape.

    The book was an easy read...finished it in two days. I enjoyed the characters but the ending was like an after school movie where everything wraps up too neatly. I think of this as "reading lite." It was enjoyable but it left me ready to read something with more substance.

    A terrific book! As usual, Lisa Wingate knocks this one out of the park. It was hard to put down.

    The Summer Kitchen by Lisa Wingate

    The Summer Kitchen is Lisa Wingate's new exciting and inspirational book! It is one of those straight through books-Can't put it down until finished.

    Seventeen year old Rusty and his twelve year old sister, Cass Salley Blue, runaway from home just after their mother's funeral, to avoid foster care. Barely earning enough to keep a place to live and food on the table, they end up in a dilapidated apartment in a struggling section of Dallas. SandraKaye Darden is preparing her deceased uncle's little red house for sale. The house is located near Cass and Rusty's apartment.

    The Summer Kitchen is laced with inspirational quotes. Cass Salley Blue: "Some lady told me once that when you don't like where you are, you could close your eyes and think of the place you'd rather be...If you believed it enough she said, it'd be just like you were there. A mind trip she called it."
    "If the mountain's big, you gotta dream bigger, Cass Salley Blue. Nothing is impossible if you've got enough faith. You remember that."

    Cass Salley Blue and Opel in her new "tshoos" will be long remembered!

    This is a very special book by an extraordinary author! A book that hopefully makes it to the movies soon.

    I highly recommend "the Summer Kitchen"!
