I would urge anyone who enjoys an enthralling read to pick up a Mary Ryan book. I find her prose a joy to read. It is neither pompously verbose or patronisingly bland, it just seems to flow beautifully. As a reader I find myself totally drawn into the plot and characters. The finely tuned characters in particular, stay with you long after you've finished the book.
Summer's End is essentially a love story but it has an intense edge to it. The reader is first introduced to the characters in their childhood and then swept along on a journey that takes them right through their lives. Set in Ireand, London and Paris, you will care deeply about these people by the end.
