I entered the generous Spring Fling 2015 book giveaway with no knowledge of any of the authors except, Selina Fenech from my previous review. I was given many free ebooks from that and intend to read and write honest reviews on them all as a thank-you. It is just taking more time than I had hoped.
Having no idea what to expect, I was very pleasantly surprised by Watermelon Summer. It is just a nice, sweet book. An easy, fun read.
18 year old Forsythia, decides she would rather know about her biological father’s life and the intentional community where she was born than go on her planned trip to Europe before college. It is a coming of age story where she decides what is really important in her life and how to work hard for it. But her idealism is also kept grounded by supportive family and friends.
Looking up author Anna Hess, you can tell that she draws on a lot of real-life experience in homesteading as her character Forsythia works to revitalize the intentional community.
