    If we could all live like Rebecca having a forgiving heart and the compassion for her father who had hurt her deeply. Highly recommend this book and the sequel.

    Lisa Wingate's tenth book, A Month of Summer"Life, Claude says is a journey by train. Outside the window, the scenery is rushing by. If you look away for even an instant, something passes uncaptured. Far in the future, when you leaf through the photo album of memory, your finger, aged and crooked, will rub lightly over that empty space, and you'll wonder, What might have been there?" And so begin the journeys of Rebecca, Hanna Beth, Claude, Edward, Teddy and others as they all eventually meet in a Texas nursing home.Rebecca, Edward's estranged 45 year old daughter, living with her husband and daughter in California, gets a call from the Dallas police that her father has been found wandering the neighborhood, and that something must be done. This brings Rebecca to Texas and so begin her experiences with an aging father, afflicted with dementia, and a mother in law, Hannah Beth, who is in the nursing home after a stroke.As I read this extraordinary story, my mind kept wandering to the movie that's sure to come. Who would be in it? Jack Nicholson could be Claude, the kindly nursing home resident who once drove the trains loaded with the former prisoners from the concentration camps. Julia Roberts could be Rebecca. Meryl Streep could be Hanna Beth, while Tom Hanks could be Edward. What a movie that will be!Wingate takes a serious subject, a subject that each of us may one day encounter, creates interesting characters and weaves them into exciting stories and mixes the story with humor that makes this book unforgettable. The Incontinence Olympics description is a must read! I'm still laughing about it.I started reading the book in the late afternoon and didn't lay it down until finished in the early morning. I really loved the book and highly recommend it! I have now read it three times.Ed
