Helping Hands
by Carolyne Aarsen

As the stifling heat of summer settles over Heather Creek Farm, bad news shakes Charlotte’s world: Her dear friend’s husband has a heart attack. As Charlotte comforts Hannah and helps them both through Frank’s difficult recovery, she begins to reflect on her own family’s well-being. What if anything ever happened to Bob? How would they all make it? Meanwhile, Emily heads off to church camp and her experiences there bring her closer to God—as well as to a new guy. With her boyfriend Troy back home, will Emily remember what loyalty is all about? Christopher is hard at work on a float for the Fourth of July parade and ropes a begrudging Bob into helping. And Sam has been spending time with his friends at a nearby lake house, where they get into some trouble that may just ruin all of their summers—and jeopardize his future. Will the long hot days of summer be a season of growth for the Stevenson family?

Carolyne Aarsen's Bio

Living a life of the writer at the intersection of No and where.

Spending my days in front of a computer immersed in other worlds with people so real to me I feel that some day I will meet them.

Keeping up with the Jones isn’t an option. In our Dutch community there are precious few Jones so that makes life easier.

I grew up in the city and now live in the country. It’s a good life. Other than the swish of the dishwasher (a heavenly sound) and the occasional hum of the refrigerator, the click of my keyboard keys and the sound of my head banging against the desk when words won’t obey, life here is pretty quiet. Just the way I like it.
