“Memory Lake; The Forever Friendships of Summer” by Nancy S. Kyme, is first place winner in the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, Inspirational category. *
Set along the shores of Lake Michigan, near the Sleeping Bear Dunes, time runs parallel between a present day journey and a distant place of memory where friendships formed and faith grew. Facing her mom’s recent passing, the author recalls another time in her life when she was learning to live without her. Told to her teenage daughter through a series of idyllic, challenging, and oftentimes humorous flashbacks, the author reveals camp’s lasting influence. These memories form a complex and entertaining weave of meaningful implications leading up to the impending camp reunion.
Through laughter, tears, colorful descriptions, thoughtful prose, and steady plot teasers, this memoir will infiltrate your dreams. Even if you’ve never attended summer camp, you’ll feel as if you have.
First Edition available online, and as an e-book. Second Edition available in book stores everywhere, and as an e-book.
