SUMMER BEFORE THE WAR


SUMMER BEFORE THE WAR

HELEN SIMONSON    Book Number: 84989    Product format: Hardback

East Sussex 1914 and it is the end of England's brief Edwardian summer. In the idyllic coastal town of Rye, Agatha Kent has just risked her carefully built reputation by pushing for the appointment of a woman to replace the Latin Master. When Beatrice Nash arrives with one trunk and several large crates of books, it is clear she is significantly more free thinking, and attractive, than anyone believes a Latin should be. Mourning the death of her beloved father, Beatrice simply wants to be left alone - much to the dismay of Agatha's nephew Hugh Grange, a medical student on leave. But just as Beatrice comes alive to the beauty of the Sussex landscape and the colourful characters who populate Rye, the perfect summer is about to end. The unimaginable is coming. Soon the limits of progress and the old ways will be tested as this small town and its inhabitants go to war. A luminous story of the final moments of innocence as lovely as a long summer sunset. Apologies for large remainder mark, pages are unscathed and readable. 489pp in paperback with reader's guide. By the author of 'Major Pettigrew's Last Stand'.
