Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A CAPTIVATING READ . . . WINDCHILL SUMMER HAS ALL THE ELEMENTS. . . . A LITTLE MYSTERY, SOME HUMOR,

[AND] A DASH OF CHARM.”

-The Denver Post

“WONDERFULLY SATISFYING AND APPEALING . . . Its the summer of 1969 in a place called Sweet Valley, Arkansas. Cherry and Baby [are] soon to be college seniors at the dinky university just a few miles away. . . . It all looks like a pleasant, predictable American life, but a long second look reveals that things arent exactly what they seem to be. . . . [Mailer] loves her characters, and we fall in love with them, too.”

-The Washington Post Book World

“IN GENTLY ROLLING SOUTHERN CADENCES, MAILER CAPTURES THE HORMONAL UPS AND DOWNS OF YOUNG WOMEN TEETERING ON THE VERGE OF ADULTHOOD.”

-Entertainment Weekly

“THIS WINSOME COMING-OF-AGE NOVEL OFFERS MUCH TO MANY. Cherry, the narrator, is my kind of woman: good-looking, straight-talking, and able to describe what its like to get amorous when youre wearing ten thousand petticoats. Most important, shes willing to decide for herself whats true.”

-ELIZABETH BERG

“SMOOTHLY WRITTEN, SWEETLY SENTIMENTAL.”

-The New York Times Book Review

Synopsis:

This debut novel by the wife of Norman Mailer is the heartwarming tale of Cherry Marshall of Sweet Valley, Arkansas, and the summer she came of age--1969--and the first moon landing, Woodstock, the Manson murders, and raging protests against the Vietnam War.
