Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
At 29, Abby Patterson is a widow, having lost her husband and baby daughter in an automobile accident that also left her with a permanently damaged hip. But her overprotective parents still see her as their compliant, soft-spoken daughter. Although she wants to honor her parents as the Lord commands, they are making life too difficult, so Abby moves to the beach community of Seaside. Her new landlord, seminary professor Marsh Winslow, doesn't quite know what to make of his opinionated and beautiful new tenant. Before Abby's first day in Seaside is over, she witnesses a hit-and-run accident involving a little girl, triggering her own tragic memories and causing hysterical amnesia. But the driver at fault isn't about to let her recover her memories, even if he has to kill her. Roper (Spring Rain) crafts a novel filled with wit, humor, romance, and suspense. Though part of a series, this title stands solidly on its own. An outstanding addition for Christian fiction and romance collections. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Highly Recommend - Excellent Storyteller

    This series is the first I've read of Gayle Roper's, but it won't be the last! This is not your 'run-of-the-mill' frivolous story to support romance (although you will get that too). Realistic, life-changing, thought-provoking writing woven with master craftsmanship. I like a story that stays with me, helps me to grow, ends with hope, but leaves a longing for more.

    heartening motivational tale

    Following the accident that took the lives of her husband and child, Abby Patterson underwent endless physical therapy just to become mobile again. Though the pain of every step back was undeniably hellish, worse is the mental of anguish of losing her beloved spouse and their two-year-old child when another driver ran a stop sign while using a cell phone. <P>Not yet thirty, but needing to start over, Abby relocates to Seaside, New Jersey, renting an upstairs apartment from gruff seminarian Professor Marshall Winslow. The first time they meet, he is short and angry towards her. She wonders how her hip will survive going up the stairs, her cat with the monster sized puppy her landlord owns, and her with this male ogre. <P>Abby witnesses a hit and run accident resulting in an injured little girl. However, the shock leaves her unable to describe the driver. As Abby and Marsh begin to fall in love, he becomes her guardian angel as someone, perhaps the driver of the hit and run goes after the only eyewitness. <P>SUMMER SHADOWS is an exciting inspirational romantic suspense tale that hooks the audience through the incredible courage of the lead female protagonist. Just physically and emotionally walking is a tremendous accomplishment, but Abby does more than that as she struggles to understand the bigger picture of why God allows bad things to happen to innocents. Though the turn around in Marsh from nasty landlord to caring protector and Abby¿s response to him seem too fast, readers will turn the other cheek because the lead characters make it worth reading Gayle Roper¿s heartening motivational tale. <P>Harriet Klausner
