The Summer After June

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ashley Warlick's critically acclaimed second novel, THE SUMMER AFTER JUNE, weaves a spellbinding tale of family and flight over the course of one feverish southern summer. Lindy Jain, a young, pragmatic, willful woman, is about to be married when her beloved sister June is mysteriously murdered. Lindy Jain then makes a desperate decision, fleeing her hometown of Charlotte — her job, her fiance, her shattered family. She lights out for the heat of the Texas coast with the one thing that still ties her to her sister: June's baby son.

Suspenseful and sensuous, utterly compelling, THE SUMMER AFTER JUNE surpasses the enormous promise of Warlick's prizewinning first novel. "Ashley Warlick is wise beyond her years and gifted by a graceful insight not only into humanity's fears and foibles but also into its capacity to evolve, to be redeemed" (Oxford American).

Synopsis:

When her beloved sister, June, is murdered, Lindy abandons her hometown of Charlotte for the heat of the Texas coast and the chance to leave her grief behind. She also does the unthinkable: she steals June's infant son.
