About "Summer of Light"

From the Christy Award-winning Author of Levi's Will

"You never know what the day will bring..."

Mick Brannigan, a construction worker, loses a good-paying job because of some freak accident, sort of his fault but not his fault. Adding insult to injury, he finds himself playing nursemaid to his three kids.

"Mick's whole life felt like an accident..."

Even more flustered is his wife, Layne, now forced to get a job to keep a paycheck coming in. Mick isn't the stay-at-home-dad type, she's sure. He's a good dad--when she is there to supervise it all...the unrelenting daily stuff. Keeping the house clean, food in the fridge. Attacking the ever-mounting laundry. Supervising their five acres of land and the menagerie of animals....

"It wasn't his idea to stay home with the kids..."

A lot is on the line, and just how the Brannigan family will survive--that is, without anyone getting seriously hurt or killed, the kids not ending up psychologically and emotionally damaged, the laundry not undoing their marriage--all remains to be seen....

Packed with humor, true-to-life characters, and themes to enlighten the soul, Summer of Light is altogether poignant, witty, entertaining, and delightfully down-to-earth.

Entertaining
5 stars By Sandra, Jul 23 2014
Mick's world is turned upside down when he is unwillingly, but unavoidably, thrust into the role of "stay at home" parent. A very steep learning curve follows while Mick discovers what (and what NOT!) to do as he begins to embrace his new life. This book was hilarious at times, while yet exploring the tender relationships he forms with those around him and his family. This will be added to my favourites list, and I plan to read it again!
