Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for an audiobook of THE SUMMER HOUSE PARTY by Caro Fraser.

Read by Helen Lloyd.

"'Fraser skilfully combines many narrative threads to build a great big satisfying saga full of passionate love, ghastly betrayal and, as Britain tips inexorably into conflict, thrilling drama."
- Daily Mail (UK)

"This rich and engrossing novel follows its characters through the testing years of the coming war, including a movingly drawn forbidden love affair, all delivered with perfect period details."
- Sunday Mirror (UK) reviews:

"In the gloriously hot summer of 1936, a group of people meet at a country house party. Within three years, the country will be engulfed in war, but for now time stands still as they sip champagne on the lawn, engaging in casual flirtations and carefree conversation. Then a shocking death puts an end to their revelry, changing everything in an instant. For all of them, that summer house party will be a turning point. The mistakes made during that fateful weekend will change their lives for ever."

"FIVE STARS!!! An excellent story that kept me turning page after page."

"FIVE STARS! I read this book slower than I've ever read a book as I didn't want it to end. What is not to like? The characters, the era and the excitement that goes along with it, the visual imagery of days long gone. I wanted to wallow in the depths of the book. Caro Fraser's skill at writing enables the reader's imagination to become so absorbed in the story that it is quite disappointing to realize that the reader has a separate life. What a talent."
