A Sea for Summer

A touching reflection on family, motherhood, identity, and forgiveness, A Sea for Summer by Shelley Kassian is a tenderly penned exploration of love, and a superb first installment of her Places in the Heart series.

Self-Publishing Review

Shelley’s near rhapsodic prose allows her stories to bloom. She is able to capture not only our attention, but also our compassion.

Grady Harp, Hall of Fame Top 100 Amazon Reviewer

Shelley Kassian is a talented author with a lot of potentials when it comes to storytelling.

Karrie, Vine Voice Amazon Reviewer

A Sea for Summer was easy reading—perfect for sitting on the dock at my cottage with a cocktail in hand. The beautiful scenery, romance, and just the right amount of conflict comprised the book, and it was the escape I was craving.

The Half Mile of Baby Blue

A warm, loving story of family pride, memories, values and desperation to save the family legacy. Community coming together, rescue horses, an exciting race and a love story all wrapped up together to make a very good book.

Jane Jones, Top 1000 Amazon Reviewer

A date auction, a giant fair like yard sale, rescue horses, and three determined grandchildren vs. one equally determined grandmother makes The Half Mile of Baby Blue a wonder family story full of emotion, romance and a look into their past.

Susan Kennedy, Goodreads Reviewer

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The story is rich and complex, with numerous engaging protagonists that make the prose dynamic, immersive, and ideal for fans of epic fantasy.

Lane’s vividly descriptive prose works wonders here, inviting readers to lose themselves in the story.
