"A moving romance"
Obstetrician gynecologist Ellen Markowitz loves living in
Shelter Rock Cove, however not as much as she loves Dr.
Hall Talbot. She knows her feelings remain unrequited as
he still loves Annie Galloway, who is married to someone
else and has been for quite awhile.
Ellen and Hall get drunk one evening and share a
passionate night of love. The next day both are awkward
with one another sharing the same bed. Both fear the
impact on their friendship and professionalism that this
one night stand can cause. When Ellen's half sister
Deirdre arrives needing a temporary place to stay, she
serves as a stimulus that makes the two medical
practitioners understand that the heart is the most
precious place for friendship to reside. Though they
exchange feelings of love, will either one take the bold
risk of saying so at the cost of their friendship?
Fans of relationship dramas will appreciate GIRLS OF
SUMMER though wonder about three strikes and your out with
the lead protagonist failing four times and still
infatuated with a married woman. The story line is loaded
with angst not only from the regretting lead couple, but
also between the step-siblings. Barbara Bretton provides
deep tale of individuals struggling with caring
connections of the heart.
