New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs sweeps readers away to Spruce Island with a
beloved summer romance.
Off the coast of Washington lies Spruce Island, home to Rainshadow Lodge, the perfect
summer retreat. Neither Mitch Rutherford or Rosie Galvez expect to find romance during
their month-long visit to the rambling Victorian getaway. Mitch, an architect, is a
workaholic on a deadline, while Rosie's determined to relax and enjoy the scenery while
preparing an environmental report. But despite—or perhaps because?—of their differences,
they find themselves drawn to each other, and their lives are irrevocably changed by their
stay at the lodge.
Originally published in 1998 in That Summer Place anthology.
