Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you know David Baldacci only as a thriller writer, you need to read more of David Baldacci. In One Summer, he writes as beautifully and insightfully about the pathways of the human heart as he does about the corridors of power. The twists and turns in this hughly emotional and unforgettable novel come from the resilience of one father’s spirit and the revelation of the love that binds a family.” Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author
One Summer is a beautifully written story about family, redemption, and hope. Baldacci demonstrates why, regardless of genre, he’s one of the world’s foremost storytellers.” Richard Paul Evans, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Walk and The Christmas Box
“One Summer has it all—humor, grace, and redemption, delivered with humanity and wisdom in the capable and sure hands of America’s great storyteller.” Adriana Trigiani, author of Very Valentine and Lucia, Lucia
“Thriller novelist David Baldacci shifts gears smoothly in this warm family drama…A soul-lifting change-of-pace novel that works.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Well performed by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy, Baldacci’s latest is…engaging.” Library Journal
“Baldacci’s muscle-bound style doesn’t do subtle: He is best at choreographing fight scenes, rescues, and dire brushes with severe weather, all of which, thankfully, are here in abundance.” Kirkus Reviews
