Between The Pages - Amanda in the Summer
Amanda in the Summer
By Brenda Whiteside
Three generations of women...and the secret that strengthens their love.
A line of women, all named Amanda, stretches back for generations. Each with her hopes, her joys, her pain--each pouring out her heart in correspondence with a dear family friend who shares their lives, understands their loves, and joins in their sorrows.
But within the correspondence lies a secret. And as the youngest of the Amandas retraces the journey through the years--beginning in post-war America and following through to modern day--the letters reveal, layer by layer, the Amandas who came before her. Soon, the truths and lies hidden in the letters lead her down a path of self-discovery that forges a bond between her past and future.
Between The Pages
Letters that take a reader through the years. A short story, yet engaging with interesting characters and family connections. Thoroughly entertaining.
