Summary

Our Summer Together is an uplifting story about family, friendship and the happy surprise of finding love later in life.

Caro knows how to be a mother - advising her grown-up daughters on career and relationship worries. She knows how to be a grandmother - enjoying the hectic energy of her three-year-old grandson. She knows how to be a daughter - helping her aging mother retain her independence. She thought she knew everything about being a wife, but when her husband suddenly leaves her for another woman, everything is thrown in the air. So when a chance meeting introduces her to Damir - younger, intriguing and attentive - she realises that opening up to a man so different from everyone else in her life might also mean getting to know who she really is....

Pure Escapism!

Being an over 50 single pure old romantic, I found this book quite enthralling from the beginning, loosing myself in every chapter.Getting to know the story and characters became delightful as though they were friends of mine.I must admitI didn't know how it would end, but increasingly found myself not wanting it to end! As I looked forward so much to each new chapter I knew the end was in sight, a joy from start to finish.

Our summer together

Ina listened to a few of Fanny Blake’s books but I didn’t enjoy this as much ass the others. I found this narrator’s character voices really irritating, especially the ones used for Lauren and Fran - they really grated on me a LOT!
Storyline was okay but even that a bit disappointing I’m afraid.
