The Last Summer has been a truly engrossing story of love and upheaval from the beginning in 1914 to the end in 1930. Judith Kinghorn's description of Deyning, the family home, was so powerful that one felt one was actually in the grounds before "the lights went out all over Europe". We follow Clarissa and Tom, their families and friends through a period of enormous changes to a way of life where each class knew its place and stayed in it.
Once started, I could not put the book down and I so look forward to the next book from this talented writer.
