Jess Carpenter is the main character in The Color of Water in July by Nora Carroll. Jess last saw her grandmother 17 years ago yet when her grandmother passed Jess inherited her summer cottage. This inheritance has sent her on a path that brings to the front her family's past. Throughout the book there are two generations telling the story. First is the grandmother, Miss Mamie and the other is Jess as she goes back to this childhood summer cottage.
This touching story is a great book to escape with, while drinking a cup of tea. Generally I do not like books that have adult topics in them, especially when they could tell the story without these items. All in all it was a good read.
I was given this book by NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
