Product description

Review

Juliet Nicolson examines a much overlooked period of history. She painstakingly recounts how those who had stayed at home came to terms with a brutally changed world in the aftermath of the first world war and how the returning soldiers struggled to cope with the horrors they faced (Elizabeth Day, Observer)

Praise for The Perfect Summer:
'As page-turning as a novel '

(Joanna Trollope, Guardian)

'There is an unpretentious directness about Nicolson's approach to her subjects that gives the book a freshness and vitality. Happily, she also has an eye for the amusing or the ironic' (Scotsman)

A fascinating read (Mail on Sunday)

Thoroughly entertaining . . . full of memorable detail (Spectator)

'The strength of the book lies in the sensitivity and skill with which the private lives and relationships of the protagonists are recounted. Nicolson writes fluently and paces her narrative expertly' (BBC History Magazine)

'Nicolson writes well and thoughtfully' (Sunday Telegraph)

'Nicolson has opened the door onto a time of misery, introspection and change' (Lancashire Evening Post)

'This detailed account of that period is both fascinating and lucidly written' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Juliet Nicolson examines a much overlooked period of history. She painstakingly recounts how those who had stayed at home came to terms with a brutally changed world in the aftermath of the First World War and how the returning soldiers struggled to cope with the horrors they faced' (Observer, Great Poolside page-turners)
