When the friendly Colin Maudsley stops to change her flat tire, American widow Laura Johnston is enchanted with his boyish charm and English manners. Colin soon works his way into her heart by offering to repair the thatched roof of a treasured cottage on her farm. Wounded in spirit by her husband's long illness and death, Laura finally finds with Colin her zest for life again. But is Colin really who he appears to be?

Just read Summer between Eternities, and thouroughly enjoyed it. This well-written novel itertwined the lives of its characters in a very realistic manner. Reading it reminded me of the importance of daily obedience to our Heavenly Father. Loved the ways the lives crossed at the end, and so happy to know we have Heaven to look forward to. However, I really loved the way life was enjoyed daily by the believers! What a blessing it was to get caught up in the importance of allowing Christ to be Lord of our lives here on Earth.
