First published by Sphere 1989, transferred to Warner 1992.. A viral Book Voices in Summer What a refreshing read! At this time of the year my choice of read is as important as my reading experience, and I really enjoy my light and breezy reads which reflect the holiday vibe. This delivered in spades as I recalled my first book of this author, The Shell Seekers. Images of Cornwell come to life, the ocean and the countryside. This author has the knack of drawing you into her world. Who would have thought England was so nice in the summer! Characters were lovely, the storyline with a hint of mystery, but all in all a very enjoyable read that I did not want to put down. It was short, and I read it in two days.Laura is a quiet but lovely lady in her late thirties that is the second wife of Alec, he has his baggage and we witness the way in which Laura finds her place in his world, and the new family becomes one. She isn’t well physically but she comes of age over a summer convalescent trip with an extended family she has never met. A lovely range of secondary characters that you want to meet; Eve the lady of the house who nurtures everyone and everything she comes across, Gerald the retired Admiral that runs his house in an orderly way but lots of love, Ivan his stepson who is a rogue but such a nice guy, Drusilla the flautist and her bare bummed chubby baby Lachlan. These characters form a little commune with their own stories that blend to form a very satisfying whole. This was the best 5 star holiday summer read that I could have asked for. I've got lots more of hers to read, too. I've found a new favourite!
