Barefoot Summer - by Denise Hunter
I found myself really enjoying this book. I loved Madison's determination to train and win the regatta, even though she froze at the mere sight of water, and didn't even know how to swim. Although storylines of dead twins are really starting to freak me out, I could feel her grief that she'd refused to release about the loss of her other half. Her search for healing, and how faith might relate to that, was compelling, and I wanted her to find a way to live her life well without Michael. Beckett was an intriguing character on his own; his past and how he'd overcome it felt realistic and honest. He had scars from his past that still affected the way he saw himself, but he was trusting God to see him through his new life.
I was excited to see that this was the first book in a series; I hope that the following books continue to expand on the other characters in Madison's family and that we continue to keep tabs on Madison and Beckett.
I give this book 4 stars for enjoyability.
