Description of this Book

It was the summer it all ended . . . It was the summer a new story began. Linston End has been the summer home to three families for several decades. The memories of their time there are ingrained in their hearts: picnics on the river, gin and tonics in the pavilion at dusk, hours spent seeking out the local swallowtail butterflies. Everyone together. But recently widowed Alastair is about to shock his circle of friends with the decisions he has made - and the changes it will mean for them all... Fans of Fern Britton and Katie Fforde will love this warm-hearted, uplifting story set in the beauty of the Norfolk Broads.

Author's Bio

With an insatiable appetite for other people's business, Erica James will readily strike up conversation with strangers in the hope of unearthing a useful gem for her writing. She finds it the best way to write authentic characters for her novels, although her two grown-up sons claim they will never recover from a childhood spent in a perpetual state of embarrassment at their mother's compulsion. The author of many bestselling novels, including Gardens of Delight, which won the Romantic Novel of the Year Award, and her recent Sunday Times top ten bestsellers, Coming Home to Island House and Song of the Skylark, Erica divides her time between Suffolk and Lake Como in Italy, where she strikes up conversation with unsuspecting Italians.
