Twenty years ago, the summer of '77 was supposed to be the best summer of Summer Wilde's life. She and her best friends, Spring, Autumn, and Snow--the Four Seasons--had big plans.

But those plans never had a chance. After a teenage prank gone awry, the Seasons found themselves on a bus to Tumbleweed, "Nowhere," Oklahoma, to spend eight weeks as camp counselors. All four of them arrived with hidden secrets and buried fears, and the events that unfolded in those two months forever altered their friendships, their lives, and their futures.

Now, thirtysomething, Summer is at a crossroads. When her latest girl band leaves her in a motel outside Tulsa, she is forced to face the shadows of her past. Returning to the place where everything changed, she soon learns Tumbleweed is more than a town she never wanted to see again. It's a place for healing, for reconciling the past with the present, and for finally listening to love's voice.

So good! I loved how the author left rabbit trails throughout the entire book to keep us wondering exactly what would happen. Seeing life through each of the girls’ eyes helped me really get a good idea of why each girl said and did what they did. I loved how different they all were, how they were loyal to each other, and their unusual but honest friendship. The Preacher was an unexpected part of the story and I loved the intrigue and emotion this brought.  The book had mystery, romance, tension, friendship, heartache, and love. A definitely winner!
