When Carolyn's grown daughter tells her she needs to ;get a
life, ; Carolyn decides it's time to step out of her
familiar routine as a single woman in San Francisco and
escape to her mother's home in the Canary Islands. Since
Carolyn's mother is celebrating her seventieth birthday, the
timing of Carolyn's visit makes for a perfect surprise. The
surprise, however, is on Carolyn when she sees Bryan
Spencer, her high school summer love. It's been seven years
since Carolyn lost her husband, but ever since that tragic
day, her life has grown smaller and closed in. The time has
come for Carolyn to get her heart back. It takes the gentle
affection of her mother and aunts, as well as the
ministering beauty and song of the islands to draw Carolyn
into the fullness of life. She is nudged along by a Flamenco
dance lesson, a defining camel ride and the steady gaze of
Bryan's intense blue-gray eyes. Is it too late for Carolyn
to trust Bryan? Can Carolyn believe that Bryan has turned
into something more than the wild beach boy who stole her
kisses so many years ago on a balmy Canary night? Carolyn is
reminded that Christopher Columbus set sail from the Canary
Islands in 1492 on his voyage to discover the New World. Is
she ready to set sail from these same islands to discover
her new life?

Re: Canary Island Song
Any book by Robin Jones Gunn is always a joy to read, and Canary Island Song is no exception. This warm and inviting mature romance is like a soothing balm - filled with love, compassion and faith, all set in a tropical paradise. Just perfect.
