Ashley Warlick's critically acclaimed second novel, THE SUMMER AFTER JUNE, weaves a spellbinding tale of family and flight over the course of one feverish southern summer. Lindy Jain, a young, pragmatic, willful woman, is about to be married when her beloved sister June is mysteriously murdered. Lindy Jain then makes a desperate decision, fleeing her hometown of Charlotte -- her job, her fiance, her shattered family. She lights out for the heat of the Texas coast with the one thing that still ties her to her sister: June's baby son.

Suspenseful and sensuous, utterly compelling, THE SUMMER AFTER JUNE surpasses the enormous promise of Warlick's prizewinning first novel. "Ashley Warlick is wise beyond her years and gifted by a graceful insight not only into humanity's fears and foibles but also into its capacity to evolve, to be redeemed" (Oxford American).
