It is the last of a trilogy of Mary Huckleberry books.
The book begins in 1982, the summer between the two heroines' junior and senior years at Traverse City high school. Both of the heroines, Mary Huckleberry and Sally Summerfield grow up considerably that summer. They have their first boyfriends and make decisions that will influence the rest of their lives.The book ends in 1993 and describes the girls' lives as young, married adults. It is a book about possibilities, choices, decisions, and consequences.
The author did the writing and his wife, Anne Sullivan, did the editing. This book is dedicated to her.
The author is the retired Chairman and one of the founders of Sullivan, Cotter and Associates, a nationwide human resources consulting firm. Prior to establishing the firm he was a faculty member and Associate Director of the Graduate School of Human Resources at Michigan State University.
He is the author of several professional publications but the Mary Huckleberry trilogy is his first attempt at fiction.

My little granddaughter and I have very much enjoyed the author's first two colorful and charming Mary Hucklberry books, but we'll have to wait a few years to fully appreciate the adventures of this somewhat older heroine. In the meantime, it's been fun to reacquaint myself with Traverse City!
I found this book to be fun, charming and very well written! The characters come alive and the book is full of great but carefully-concealed advice for young people. I'm a Traverse City native and look forward to sharing this insightful book with my 13 year old grandaughter !! TC Patti
