BOOK REVIEW OUR SUMMER TOGETHER BY FANNY BLAKE

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. ….

Firstly a big thank you to Elaine at orion for my copy to review. 

I finished this evening and I’m already missing Caro.  What a enjoyable lovely character . She had such  a warmth to her I felt like she really stepped off the pages into my imagination.

This author is a brilliant storyteller and she captures the reader very quickly .

This is so much more than  a love story ,this is about finding out who Caro is and what does her heart truly desire. 

What once felt scary to her she is now embracing and living life to the full again. 

As a woman and a mum I know only too well what it’s like regarding putting others first and Caro is realising albeit quite late that she needs to do the same . So even though she was an older generation than me I felt I could connect and relate to her .

Through falling in love again she also begins to love and respect herself .

A fantastic summer read full of warmth humour and new beginnings .
