Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Love and Summer, the latest item from William Trevor's venerable suitcase, is a thrilling work of art."

-The New York Times Book Review

In spare, exquisite prose, master storyteller William Trevor presents a haunting love story about the choices of the heart, and the passions and frustrations of three lives during one long summer. Ellie is a shy orphan girl from the hill country, married to a man whose life has been blighted by an unspeakable tragedy. She lives a quiet life in the Irish village of Rathmoye, until she meets Florian Kilderry, a young photographer preparing to leave Ireland and his past forever. The chance intersection of these two lost souls sets in motion a poignant love affair that requires Ellie to make an impossible choice.

Synopsis:

The inimitable William Trevor returns with a story of suspicion, guilt, forbidden love and the possibility of starting over.

It's summer, and nothing much is happening in Rathmoye. So it doesn't go unnoticed when a dark-haired stranger begins photographing the mourners at Mrs. Connulty's funeral. Florian Kilderry couldn't know that the Connultys were said to own half the town. But Miss Connulty resolves to keep an eye on Florian ... and she becomes a witness to the ensuing events. In a characteristically masterful way, Trevor evokes the passions and frustrations in an Irish town during one long summer.

From the Hardcover edition.
