5.0 out of 5 stars Personal drama at its best., 11 Mar 2011
By Mrs. F. H. Mortimer "Faith Mortimer" (Cyprus and the UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
This review is from: This Last Summer (Kindle Edition)
Tania has chosen some interesting topics for her novel, This Last Summer and on the whole I believe she handled herself very well.
This is a good in-depth family drama and we, as the reader are gradually introduced to each aspect as it naturally occurs in her story.

Madeleine Chambers (principal character) is a journalist, and it is her private life and her relationships with members of her family and friends that we are brought face to face with: her father, her recently rediscovered and mortally sick mother, grandmother, and her clever brother, Ben who we discover has Asperger's Syndrome. This situation she handles particularly well, and one has to ask the question whether Tania has some special knowledge of this often frustrating syndrome.

Madeleine(Maddie) has to come to terms with many aspects of her life, and this leads to her making hard choices ~ she wrestles with her emotions and guilt over her errant mother, and her involvement with a fellow journalist who is married and definitely wants more of Maddie.A real mix of emotions well up to the surface. It's always comes down to choices and finding the right answer.
The book flows well and is certainly thought provoking; and well written.I do rate this book at 4.5 stars. Well done Tania, I look forward to reading more of your work and very good luck.

What a perfectly fitting title for This Last Summer. Maddie Chambers, a TV journalist, has more than any person can handle in one Summer. Tania Tirraoro has created a very real and relatable character in Maddie who struggles with her career, relationships and family.

In the midst of a news story, Maddie accidently discovers her mother who abandoned their family fifteen years early. Now she is torn between her feelings of resentment and her desire to forgive her mother who she discovers is very ill. On top of all this, Maddie's getting close to a married colleague, Owen, who persistently flirts with her. I really loved his character and found his personality, flaws and all, to be very endearing. A few times I had to break out the tissues for this tender story of love, loss, family and relationships. Something for just about everyone in This Last Summer.

Even though books I typically read involve some manner of crime or, on the other spectrum, have more spiritual themes, I did enjoy this drama with a romantic twist, or is that a romance with a dramatic ending? Regardless, I was engaged by the characters from when I first opened the book and was eager to see what would happen at the end.

This Last Summer was certainly a tearjerker in some places. In other areas, it made me smile. It portrays how vital it is to have a forgiving attitude and how an unforgiving spirit can destroy a person's soul if it continues to go unchecked.

I would recommend it on a variety of levels. However, because we never know what may happen tomorrow - what ills we may befall or how we may get hurt - it's good to read a book of this caliber once in a while because it helps keep life in the proper perspective.

I've provided a more extensive review on my blog, Book Reviews by Norma Budden, if anyone would care to read it.

This is one of e most boring books I've ever read! The dialog is redundant and the story moves very slow. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen, but unfortunately, i was bored until the end of the book. I would not recommend this book to anyone!
