    Firefly Summer is an enchantingly poetic recreation of life in rural Puerto Rico at the turn of the century. A young student returns home to her parents' plantation for the holidays and re-discovers the beauty of the tropical hills, the music, lore, and customs of the country folk.   "Firefly Summer" is an exceptional story and very suspensful. I had trouble putting the book down and found myself reading into the wee hours of the morning. The story intrigues to the point you want it to end so you can find out what happens and at the same time you feel you do not want it to end but want it to go on forever.5/5(5).
