In the summer of 1969, Kathleen’s thirteenth year, her mother drags her to yet another artist colony on the beaches of Northwest Florida. There, Kat’s feelings of isolation and hopelessness, spawned by her parents’ estrangement, develop into a selfish rage . Malcolm, a mentally-challenged boy who lives at the artist colony, tries to befriend Kat, but his very presence annoys her to her core. Though it takes a long and difficult summer for Kat to see it, Malcolm and his colorful guardian, Jeanette, are the examples of true and selfless love. The canvas of Kat’s life, first stained by pain and trial and now touched by love, begins to transform into a masterpiece.

About the Author:
Nan Corbitt Allen is a Graduate of The University of Alabama. She is the writer of over 100 dramatic musicals, and three books, and a 3-time GMA Dove Award winner.

I am an avid reader of most genres of literature. There is something about this book that drew me in immediately and captivated me until the final page. The characters in Watercolor Summer were deeply portrayed and I identified a part of myself in each one. It was a wonderful read, and I hated to put it down each time my children called to me for attention. I was sad to see it end, even though the end was remarkably satisfying! I highly recommend you taking a peek at it, it is an enjoyable read for a long weekend, or just sitting outside in the sunshine! 

You can purchase Watercolor Summer direct from the publisher for $12, an autographed copy!
