"She had never known what she had been missing. She had never known how it was supposed to be." ~ pg. 48
Jane Green is a household name. Whether you are a chick lit fan, women's fiction reader or prefer contemporary written works, you have seen or heard of author Jane Green. I have only read a couple of her bestsellers but fell in heart with the cover of her newest release, Summer Secrets. Based on first impressions only, I downloaded the eBook and purposely started reading at the end of this summer.
Cat lived it up in London in her 20s: great job, great friends, partied hard and wreaked havoc. She finds the father she never knew she had but it jeopardizes the new family she craves. Now in her late 30s, Cat is sober, divorced, building on the relationship with her teenage daughter and making amends for her past. But that one summer night can—and will—change her life forever.
Summer Secrets is a literary example of two clichés: your past will come back to haunt you. What happens in the dark comes out in the light. It also has one central theme: addiction. Whether you know an alcoholic or not, you will gain a new understanding of addiction from reading Cat's story.
