    • Self-Improvement

Colleen Temple is a mother to three lively, creative, and hilarious children. She is a freelance writer and former editor at Motherly where she built out the essays channel called Motherly Stories, as well as compiled and edited their first book, a collection of essays called This Is Motherhood. Together with her husband Colin, they are raising their family in a coastal Massachusetts town. Summer Breakdown is her debut novel, and she can’t wait for you to read it.

Summer Breakdown is about one woman's reluctant journey back home to the charming beach town of Seaside, MA. Full of family drama, secrets, and parenting rawness, this trip threatens to unravel Sabrina's life completely. Ultimately, it’s a raw and moving love story about the complexities of family, marriage, humanity, and the dual beauty and heartache of raising children while also raising yourself.
