I look forward to reading this book. The Camp Fire camp I grew up with and managed for the last 30 years is being sold. Since programming has become dormant, our national office revoked our charter. I'm hoping to find some ideas.

Camp Firelight is a permanent summer camp for girls ages 5 through high school, with older girls coming back as counselors and a couple, like Ethel, even becoming the director of camp. Located on Lake Wenatchee in Washington state, Camp Firelight was the home of the heart and spirit of some of the girls. Unfortunately, the well that supplied safe water to the camp ran dry, twice in two years. There was not enough money to drill a new well and the governing board of the camp decided it was time to stop, and to sell the camp. Ethel, who had been retired from being the camp director for around 10 years, and who lived on Lake Wenatchee only a couple of miles from the camp, sent a missive to camp alumnae, informing them of this decision and inviting them to come help clean up the camp for sale and to say goodbye. This novel is about the week or so that Ethel and some of the women are at camp. A teenager (Amber) also becomes part of the story even though she never attended this camp. This is a story about love, fortitude, courage, friendship, and making clear choices.
