I have got to stop reading books about the elderly and the infirm right now. With my mom giving my Grandma around the clock care and another family member in end-stage cancer. I just need to stop reading these types of books.
But I read the synopsis when I picked up the book. I only have myself to blame. A Month of Summer is a book about a daughter, Rebecca, who is estranged from her father. Rebecca hasn't seen her father in 33 years when she gets a phone call from the police, who found her elderly father disorientated and wandering the streets.
Rebecca does the right thing and goes to Texas. Where she finds her Step-Mother in a nursing home recovering from a stroke. And the hired help has apparently absconded with all of the money. Rebecca has walked into a mess that she is not sure she can fix.
The book was just "meh". I enjoyed watch the relationship between Rebecca and Teddy grow. Her fondness increased with each page turn. I did NOT like how her husband rushed in and solved all of her problems in one page. It does a great disservice to the character growth that had been going on. Not to mention their was no real resolution between Rebecca and her husband. Then the story abruptly ended.
I read the whole book, but given what is going on in my own family, I should have just put the book down and went on to something fluffy.
