Overview

Summer Light by Luanne Rice

When it comes to love and family, the things you can’t see are what matter most of all.

Bestselling novelist Luanne Rice has inspired the devotion of readers everywhere with her “rare combination of realism and romance.”(The New York Times Book Review) Now she presents her most magical novel to date, an entrancing story of love at first sight, the true meaning of family, and angels right here on earth.

May Taylor works as a wedding planner, passing on the timeless traditions of her grandmother and mother. The Taylor women have always believed in the presence of magic in everyday life--especially the simple magic of true love and family. Yet May’s own faith in true love was shattered when she was abandoned by the father of her child. Still, she finds joy in raising her daughter Kylie, a very special five-year-old who sees and hears things that others cannot. . .

Martin Cartier is a professional hockey player and sports legend. His father, a champion, taught him to play to win--at all costs. Now Martin’s success veils a core of heartache, rage, and isolation. Yet Kylie glimpses the transcendent role Martin will play in May’s life and her own--unless his past tears their blossoming love apart. Then only Kylie will see the way home--and only May will be able to lead them there, if she can believe in magic once more.

I became interested in hockey when i got a pen friens who loves it. I love romance and i love romance about sport men too. I seached for hockey romances and came acroos this and it sounded interesting. I went out and bought it. This book was one of the best romaces i have ever read. It made me laugh, cry, get angry and for me not many books do that or movies for that mattere. So When it happens i am deeply touched. This book was written so beautifully i stayed up and rad it in one night. I am going to read it again too. This is the first book i have read by Luanne Rice and I have thank her for writing this. It was to me everything romance should be and being a big romantic I was delighted to read something so poignant. I felt as though I wanted to be part of the book. I was wishing it was a true story and that I could meet this Martin Cartier. I highly recommend everyone read it.

This is a good book to read between heavy reading. It is light and fun. It is the story of a mother and a daughter. The daughter is able to see ghosts. The pair of them hook up with a hockey player and that is when their lives take some turns. It is a good book that is fun to read a good story. I like this author and would read other things written by her. I don't usually like "ghost stories" but this one was not so fakey and hoaxey (are those even words). Try it out.

I picked up this book not knowing what to expect since I have never read one of Ms. Rice's book before. I found that I could not put this book down though it is not the fast past easy romance type of book I am use to reading, I found it to be deeply moving and heart warming. This is a story of great love, family and the human spirit.

It was the most powerful book i've ever read. I was hoping throughout the book that Martin wouldn't go blind. When he lost the puck in Game 7 because he blacked out I just knew it was going to go down hill for him. When the world was starting to go dark in his summer house in Canada I started to cry. And then Niagra Falls came down when he went into the locker room for the next season to his enemy. I recommend you have kleenex near you.

It was the summer and my grandma gave me the book because I was just watching to much tv. At first I really didn't want to read it but as I read on and on I got more intrested. I read it constantly and could not put it down. Some of the parts were so cool with the whole hockey thing. But others made you say "awwwwww!!!" out loud. It was so cute and i really want it to turn into a movie one day!!!!
