I just finished reading On A Summer Tide, book one of a new series by Suzanne Woods Fisher called Three Sisters Island. Fans of Suzanne's are familiar with her popular books about the Amish. This book is a departure from that genre and highlights the author's talents for well written fiction.
I enjoyed meeting the Graysons and learning, piece by piece through the chapters about their family dynamics and what gave each of them their individual outlooks on Three Sisters Island. Paul Grayson, patriarch of the family had thrown them all a curve ball when he asked them to clear their schedules to join him on the island. The journey was more than they bargained for and upon their arrival, the girls wondered if their father was going senile.
Day by day, as they breathed new life into Camp Kicking Moose, new dreams surfaced for everyone. Perhaps there is magic in that ocean air filled with possibilities found with love, rekindled faith and a lot of listening.
There are so many surprises in the story that it is hard to not to give it all away. I recommend this book without hesitation to those who like contemporary Christian fiction with a slight twist of mystery.

mind, the three sisters rush to the island. To Cam's surprise, the slow
