All summer long a novel
All Summer Long by Dorothea Benton FrankThirteen-year-old Bina has a long summer ahead of her. She and her best friend, Austin, usually do everything together, but he's off to soccer camp for a month, and he's been acting kind of weird lately anyway. So it's up to Bina to see how much fun she can have on her own. At first it's a lot of guitar playing, boredom, and bad TV, but things look up when she finds an unlikely companion in Austin's older sister, who enjoys music just as much as Bina. But then Austin comes home from camp, and he's acting even weirder than when he left.

All Summer Long: A Novel by Dorothea Benton Frank
A woman goes through inner struggles as to what will happen to her and her husband as well as their future. Will it be good or bad…and will they survive the storm to come? This new summer title brings the realities of life and the unpleasantness of failure. All Summer Long is the first novel I have read by this talented writer. However, the story itself seemed a bit too depressing with the anxiety of work, the uncertainty of the future, and the unknown of what may or may not happen to the marriage. Her issues feel like they were mine and that I was the one shouldering all of her worries.

All Summer Long shares the story of Olivia, an interior designer to the rich, and her husband, Nick, a newly-retired professor. Olivia is uncertain how her interior business will fare outside of New York City. Her number one client is Maritza and her billionaire husband, Bob. Bob does not value marriage much and often has affairs which leave Maritza uncertain in her role and future. The prevalent issue of love being unable to buy happiness is obvious, but Frank weaves lessons of strong marriages, business at the brink, and the power of family into this slow, but entertaining book. Her writing is descriptive but sometimes gets caught up in painful details and then at times the story skips forward too fast.
