A wonderful book with great characters--from the Brannigan family, their neighbors, the homeless community, even the animals. Inspirational without being preachy. Highly recommended.

This book just got added to my "all time fav" bookshelf. Good storyline, interesting tempo of wording, good characters. This writer is a "must read" kind of writer. I wish I could give it a dozen stars. The father gets a big awakening about his place in his children's lives. This is the first book I have read by this author but it will not be the last!

This is a really sweet book. Tho it's written in the third person, you get inside the mind of a stay-at-home daddy and how the dynamic of the family, the marriage and the husband's life in general changes. I really liked this one. It's the first I've read of this author, and I already have two friends in mind that I want to lend it to.

Good writer. A bit sappy, but it kept be interested in the outcome.

Excellent read! This was the first book of this author that I have read. I really enjoyed it. He did a very good good job of making the characters come alive. The story of a reluctant stay at home dad was sweet, hilarious and full of surprises for the reader and the character. I highly recommend. I will be looking for more by W. Dale Cramer.

I enjoyed reading this book. The roles of parents are
switched after the father has an accident. The author's
writing captivates the reader to read to the end of
the book. A VERY GOOD BOOK!

This book was interesting and the characters were relatable like the other book, Sutter's Cross, by the same author. I felt it was a good story but not as involved and inspiring as I had hoped.

I've read Cramer's other books and I have enjoyed them. Summer of Light is packed with humor.The characters are very true to life. Mick Brannigan looses his job and ends up
becoming Mr. Mom much to his objection. He has a son with learning disabilities and has to keep a constance eye on him. Mick gets involved helping a neighbor with construction work.He learns a new hobbie and befriends a homeless man all the while taking care of his kids.A very entertaining book.

This is an absolutely delightful story, at times hilarious & at times poignant, about a "man's man" who is slowly changed by God's Hand through circumstances outside his control to become "a man of God." I highly recommend reading it. The characters are very real, from his 3 children to his up-tight wealthy neighbor to the homeless people he finds himself interacting with. A really good summer read.
