"Buckle up! With a
sparkle of humor,
heart-pumping
romance, and writing
style that is fresh, fun,
and addictive, Lorna
Seilstad taks you on
The Ride of Her
LIfe--and yours--along
the shores of 1906 Lake
Manawa."
--Julie Lessman,
award winning author
of the
Daughters of Boston
and the Winds of Change
series


"Lorna Seilstad pulled
me into the world she
created around Lake
Manawa with the lake
breeze, the sailboats,
and the leisure of
summer days. But the
love story and the
characters were what
made the book great.
This needs to be
everyone's first choice
for a vacation read, or if
you just want to open
the pages of a book and
be transported from
your recliner to the
beach."
--Mary Connealy, author,
Doctor in Petticoats and
Wrangler in Petticoats



"Seilstad's new
historical series, Lake
Manawa Summers, is
filled with characters
who are funny,
cunning, lovable, and
somehow always land
on their feet. The
blooming romance is a
joy to read as it unfolds
throughout the story."
