Books Voices in Summer Rosamunde Pilcher writes in a way that is so comfortable you feel you have come home after time away and your mother is catching you up on all the shenanigans of your sisters while you were gone. She describes Cornwall, a world in which everyone gardens, lives comfortably, dips in the ocean, builds comfy fires in the evening, and knows the neighbors, and she does it in a way that makes you feel you belong to this place where you have never been.The weather was changing, the barometer dropping. A wind had risen, flowing in from the southwest, warm and blustery. On the horizon, clouds banked in dark billows, but the sky remained blue, crossed by banks of white cumulus. The sea, observed from the gardens of Tremenheere, no longer lay blue and flat as silk, but was whipped into flecks of surf. Doors slammed and windows rattled, and sheets and pillowcases and Joshua’s nappies flapped and bellied on the washing line, making a noise like badly set sails.I can see the wash on the line and feel the wind whipping the sea, and I want to go stand outside and catch the breeze on my face and smell the salt in the air.I knew who the culprit was going to be (although I got the reason wrong), and I figured on the slight romantic twist, but it didn’t matter at all. It was a story told for the joy of the experience, for the knowing of the people, for the visit to Cornwall. It was like a tiny vacation...and what better time to take a vacation than summer?.

Bestseller Book Voices in Summer What a refreshing read! At this time of the year my choice of read is as important as my reading experience, and I really enjoy my light and breezy reads which reflect the holiday vibe. This delivered in spades as I recalled my first book of this author, The Shell Seekers. Images of Cornwell come to life, the ocean and the countryside. This author has the knack of drawing you into her world. Who would have thought England was so nice in the summer! Characters were lovely, the storyline with a hint of mystery, but all in all a very enjoyable read that I did not want to put down. It was short, and I read it in two days.Laura is a quiet but lovely lady in her late thirties that is the second wife of Alec, he has his baggage and we witness the way in which Laura finds her place in his world, and the new family becomes one. She isn’t well physically but she comes of age over a summer convalescent trip with an extended family she has never met. A lovely range of secondary characters that you want to meet; Eve the lady of the house who nurtures everyone and everything she comes across, Gerald the retired Admiral that runs his house in an orderly way but lots of love, Ivan his stepson who is a rogue but such a nice guy, Drusilla the flautist and her bare bummed chubby baby Lachlan. These characters form a little commune with their own stories that blend to form a very satisfying whole. This was the best 5 star holiday summer read that I could have asked for. I've got lots more of hers to read, too. I've found a new favourite!
