About the Book:
As a radio show host, Debra spends her mornings as Miss Lonely Heart on air, empathizing with all the broken hearts in the Denver metro area. She spends her evenings watching old musicals and trying not to think about the guy who broke up with her and subsequently fell in love with one of her best friends. Alone in a new city, Debra questions where she belongs and who she is now.
When she stumbles into the indie music scene, Debra meets singer Ben Price. Rock star appeal, with a day job as a worship pastor, Ben is everything Debra wants to avoid. But he’s determined to be her friend, and it so happens she could really use one. Because try as she might, nothing seems to erase the anger and betrayal she feels.
It’s time for a new dream. But how does she start over when she doesn’t even know what she wants anymore?
This story is about learning to breathe again after a crushing blow to the heart, learning to take one step at a time and re-learning how to trust that God's goodness- and His plans- are best. I empathized with Debra's pain, loneliness, and anger as she trudges through her not-asked-for "new" life. And then along came Ben! Ben made this story for me. His easygoing temperament and almost child-like playfulness makes him easy to like right from the start. I appreciated his genuineness and his giving nature with both Christian and non-Christian friends alike. It took some time, but his gentle yet persistent pursuit of Debra opens the door to a whole smattering of blessings and introduces her to a love beyond her wildest dreams. Readers of The Last Summer are sure to join me in cheering for Debra as she finally finds the happily ever after she deserves!
