The Summer Wind is the second book in Monroe’s Lowcountry Summer trilogy, following the New York Times bestselling The Summer Girls. This series is a poignant and heartwarming story of three half-sisters and their grandmother, who is determined to help them rediscover their southern roots and family bonds. It’s midsummer and Eudora, nicknamed Dora, is staying at Sea Breeze, the family’s ancestral home on Sullivan’s Island. For years, Dora has played the role of the perfect wife and mother in a loveless marriage. Now her husband filed for divorce, her child is diagnosed with autism, and her house is on the market. Dora’s facade collapses under the weight of her grief and she suffers “broken heart syndrome.” Mamaw and the girls rally around Dora—but it’s up to Dora to heal herself as she spends the summer prowling the beach, discovering the secrets of the island and her heart. This is a summer of discovery for all the women of Sea Breeze. Carson returns from Florida to face life-changing decisions, Lucille confronts a health scare, and an unexpected visitor has Harper reconsidering her life’s direction. When tropical storm winds batter the island, the women must band together and weather the tempest—both the one outside their windows and the raging sea of emotions within each of them. They must learn again what it means to be a sister. It is up to Mamaw to keep the light burning at Sea Breeze to guide the girls through the lies, the threats, and the rocky waters of indecision to home.

Buried deep in the Wisconsin Northwoods, the ruined splendor of the Summerwind Mansion bares the bones of its legendary past. Robert Patterson Lamont purchased the property in 1916 as a country retreat where he could entertain such guests as President Warren G. Harding. Unfortunately, the house played host to visitors of an entirely different sort, and Lamont reportedly fled the property after discharging a pistol at a ghoul in the basement pantry. Raymond Bober abandoned his attempt to convert the house into a hotel in the 1970s, describing rooms that changed size and the mysterious presence of an eighteenth-century explorer in his famous book, The Carver Effect. Join Devon Bell for a glimpse through the shattered windows of the most specter-laden spot in the Badger State.

The fascinating and heartbreaking story of Indiana soldier Dick Wolfe was preserved in scores of letters he sent home to family and friends and sent to him in Vietnam from July 1967 to early January of 1968. On the rare days Wolfe spent at relatively large base camps in Vietnam, he penned long, detailed letters to his wife, mother, and friends. Most of his correspondence, however, was written in brief snatches in a tent-covered hole by the light of a single candle at primitive night defensive positions. Dick Wolfe's letters held little back. He told in great detail of the all-but-unbearable heat and humidity and of rain episodes of epic proportions. He described huge and often bizarre-looking insects and snakes he encountered wading through stinking and muddy waist-high water and episodes of fierce fighting. Dick Wolfe's letters also shed light on the complexities of an American army rifle company in Vietnam at the apex of the war, revealing the budding friendships and bonding among the thrown-together group of young American men of Alpha Company. The authors of Summer Wind: The Vietnam War letters of Richard "Dick" Wolfe have quickened this unique correspondence and brought it fully to life. Using materials such as personal interviews, diary accounts, personal journals of the men who served with Dick Wolfe, official military reports, recorded air-to-ground conversations, newspaper articles, memoir pieces, and military history accounts of the Second Battalion, Eighteenth Infantry of the First Division, the authors weave together a tale with the greatest amount of context, delivering an astounding awareness of the incredible stress of combat - both on combatants and the - folks back home. The story is a real-time chronicling of the impact of the war on all concerned - family, friends, and the community where Dick Wolfe grew up - written with a simple eloquence that puts flesh on the skeleton of an understanding of war's pervasive and lasting effects.
