Audie Pippin is a 24-year-old veterinary technician at the animal shelter in Sumter, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville. Her carefree life includes friends, marijuana, margaritas, and casual sex—until all of it is jeopardized by her grandmother’s failing health.
Beth Hester is a 33-year-old nurse at the long-term care facility where Audie’s grandmother is admitted after a serious stroke. She’s down to earth and mature, her career and financial investments meticulously planned. Compared to Audie, Beth doesn’t know the meaning of fun.
Through Audie’s daily visits, they forge a friendship that draws Beth into a celebration of the fun side of life while opening her eyes to innocent, unselfish love.
As Audie surrenders her heart to Beth, she begins to distance herself from the reckless habits of her youth. Just as they’re ready to meet in the middle, their future is thrown into doubt by a duty Beth can’t ignore. It all comes to a head on the river at Sumter Point.
Another fabulous book by KG. She has such a talent for character development, and Sumter Point is no exception. Every character is well framed and real…an integral element to shaping the journey they all make. Beth and Audie are both brave and confident in moving forward, and the love and tenderness Audie has for her grandmother is heart filling.
A definite add to my favorites.
