Rated 4.75/5 based on 4 reviews
Summer is a time for love, sorrow, joy and pain – but mostly, it is a time for change. Summer is the season from which all memories flow. For Maggie and Peter, the summer of 1968 is one that changed their lives forever. For Jenny and Tom, the summer of 1979 is the one that will be remembered most. Two couples - one married the other childhood friends - separated by years, but inexorably linked. More

Although captivating, real characters, good plot, the book began with some dfficulty separating the two story lines. Also the ending was too abrupt and left me wondering about two secondary characters and what exactly was their conclusion. I tried several times to find an epilogue.

I agree with everything the other reviews say, but for me what made this such a good story was the way the two couples stories were linked. At first, I didnt think they were linked at all, but when I worked it out I was surprised by how obvious it was. I thought it was very clever becuase the stories stood on their own two feet anyway, so I don't think it matters if you work it out or not. Either way, I enjoyed reading the book much more than what I thought I would.

Brilliant. Loved it and didn't want it to end. Made me reminisce about my childhood and the innocence of the language we used when we were a more resiliant culture, before we became such a timid and politically correct nation........... it's rare that a a story has the ability to evoke mentionable emotion within me, yet this book managed to elicit a plethora. Very easy to read, great story with very real characters that I'd happliy continue to read about. Can't wait for more!

I have to say I am not a reader by any means not since having to read at school which was more than 20 years ago. I decided to read this book and once I started to read it I could not put it down ! I found it to be a very easy and interesting to read . It drew me in and made me have laugh out loud moment also the ones where you cry . I highly recommend this book to anyone it will bring back all your childhood memories that you thought you had long forgotten .

I've only just joined this site and this is the second book I have tried. I gave up on thye first one after a couple of chapters and expected this to be as bad. I was so wrong. I couldn't put this one down. I read it in one weekend and can't wait to try more books now. I really like the character of Jenny. She comes across as tough and swears a lot, but shes a pretty normal 11 year old i think.

The whole story is great. It made me laugh out loud and even cry. And at times some of the people made me really angry (I wont say who cuase it might spoil it for others).

I can't believe this was free!
