From the Back Cover

ONCE UPON A SUMMER

Sure, it's unusual to have an eighteen-year-old mother when you're twelve. But when you're an orphan and she's your aunt--and the only mother you've ever known--well, it works out just fine.

That's why I got so riled up when I heard Grandpa and Uncle Charlie talkin' about findin' a fella for Aunt Lou!

You see, somethin' had to be done. I couldn't just sit back and watch our family get broken up. But with Grandpa and Uncle Charlie workin' so hard to marry off Aunt Lou, I really had my job cut out for me. Then that preacher came along, and things got really complicated... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheerful story. July 3 2004
By MAB
Format:Paperback
"Once upon a Summer" is a book that is not too serious and not excessively religious. In fact, I think a subtle point was that a person may attend church, but that doesn't mean they are a good person, and that people who do not attend church, may in fact be good people (although I doubt these are the points author Oke was intending to make). I enjoyed the character of Auntie Lou and her valor towards her feelings. I found Grandpa and Uncle Charlie's actions to be awful (concerning finding Lou a suitable husband, and not leaving the choice up to her), and Josh and Gramps' relationship heartwarming. If you're looking for a book to sit back and relax with, then this is the book for you. I recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first book in a very good series Oct. 20 1999
Format:Paperback
This book and series shows the struggles of an unusual family structure including: a grandfather and his father, brother, daughter and grandson. The focus is on the grandson who was orphaned as an infant and has known no other family. His young aunt is the only mother that he has ever known. As the story unfolds, the young boy has to deal with jealousy towards his aunt's suitors. The whole series is quite well done.
