THE BOOK OF SUMMERS by Emylia Hall
When news of a death in the family reaches her from abroad, Beth Lowe realises that she can no longer avoid her past. She is sent a scrap book of photographs and mementos made by her mother, a poignant record of the seven childhood summers she spent in rural Hungary. It was a time when she trod the tightrope between separated parents and two distinct countries; a bewitching but imperfect Hungarian mother and a gentle, reticent English father; the dazzling house of a Hungarian artist and an empty-feeling cottage in deepest Devon. Years later, the memories of her Hungarian summers continue to haunt Beth and entice her, no matter how hard she tries to run away from them. The arrival of The Book of Summers brings a past Beth hasn’t yet made peace with rushing back into her present.
The Book Of Summers is about the lies we tell, the truths we keep and, above all, the ways we find to keep on loving one another.
