Will soon be available through Books-A-Million, Walmart and most area bookstores.
My purpose for writing the saga called Summer’s Keep was to provide a glimpse of how our gracious God moves in the lives of ordinary people.
In creating this coastal South Carolina community and the town of Noble, Mississippi, I hope to display something of the purposes of God down through the generations of a few Lowcountry and Delta families and how they intertwine with each other. As the story unfolds it begins to become evident that God pursues us, and every person is given a chance to respond to His gracious and universal call.
But, my main objective in storytelling is to get out a message. I don’t preach in my stories, but I do have a message…a Good News message. I try to keep the tension high enough so that the reader is compelled to keep turning the pages long after she should turn off the lamp light and go to sleep.
With a prayer of hope, that’s what I’d like to accomplish with my stories. Thank you so much for your kind attention to my words.

What Readers are Saying:
“This story, Summer’s Keep, just reminded me about the seeds we plant. Sometimes they lay dormant until the right rain or storm comes our way, bringing them to life! Their journey to growth.”
~ Darlene McCaig
~ Clarice Johnson
“Summer’s Keep had a way of transporting me to another place with characters that I found myself falling in love with. I would get anxious to know what was coming next for them. This book had just enough suspense to keep the pages turning and before I knew it, the story came to a close. I truly missed this book once I finished reading it and found myself thinking about these characters, albeit fictional, in my daily life. It is a must read novel with a powerful message that brought everything together beautifully.”
~ H. L. Mears
“I haven’t been disappointed in one book written by Mrs. Annie Cole. Summer’s Keep is beautifully written, I felt as if I were right in the thick of the story…feeling the fresh air blowing my hair, enjoying the wonderful food, especially the homemade pecan pie, to walking lightly in the ice and snow…your feelings get wrapped in each character wanting to love on them. I wasn’t ready for the book to end.”
“If you haven’t read one of Annie M. Cole’s books then I suggests you pick this one up and read it. I love the way the author describes the places and the characters. Very inspiring and uplifting story. One that makes you want to get up and make a change.
Sometimes when you seem lost in the hard moments of life it is good to be reminded that God is always Faithful.
In this story Shanna shows us how giving of oneself opens the door to peace of mind and joy. Gage walks us down a path of finding out we do not have to be defined by what life brings us but by what we chose life to be.
~ Lisa Clement
