Spring ReBrick Publishers is Publishing Summer In Connecticut: A Canyoneer’s Trip Down Memory Lane, by Sarah Taylor. I discovered this comic book quite funny and I enjoyed every minute of reading it.
What makes Sarah Taylor’s story so entertaining is the humorous tone. I enjoy this because it keeps me interested. Additionally, it makes this story unique.
Summer In Connecticut is set in a little town called Valley Stream. The story takes place during the summer of 1996. One of the residents is Mandy, who happens to be an avid golfer.
She lives next door to a private, golf club. Although she isn’t a member of this club, she helps preserve the grounds on a regular basis.
She is also quite knowledgeable about the golf club. One day she’s out playing with her husband and they come across a stranger with an accident on the program.
The next thing you know, Mandy, from her back yard, finds a man falling off his golf cart onto the program. Mandy thinks the man is dead because he had been knocked out cold by the golf cart.
But she does notice the man’s clothing appears to be slightly unbuttoned. He is covered in sunburn and he’s incredibly thirsty. Fortunately, she knows where a water fountain is located.
Since she’s unsure how long the guy will probably be needing water, she knows it would be best if she called the water fountain for her. When she returns, the man is still unconscious.
Shortly after waking up, Mandy realizes that the man needs to pay a visit to the doctor. As it happens, the man’s family has recently moved to Connecticut. Mandy asks her friend and fellow Canyoneer, Chelsea, if she knows anyone who may be able to help him get to the physician.
At first, I found Sarah Taylor’s book to be quite humorous. However, the more I read, the more I realized that the funny part of the story came after the story explored how Mandy learned about the gentleman’s medical condition and discovered how he had to go to the doctor.
