Editorial Reviews

Review

GILDED SUMMERS by Donna Russo Morin is a lush and evocative novel of the distinctive period known as Newport's Gilded Age, a period brought vibrantly to life in this powerful work. Ginevra and Pearl, unique in their own way yet equally sympathetic, are captivating from the start and never let go. The passages and chapters are exquisitely and uniquely intertwined, like the young lives of its characters, sewn seamlessly with the mounting mystery and suspense. Vivid descriptions evoke the setting and period with such mastery, one feels like a 'fly on the wall,' living there with these young women who are so well crafted and developed. A genuine 'can't put it down' novel, a triumph by a masterful writer!
                Anne Girard (Diane Haegar) author of Madame Picasso
"Author Donna Russo Morin has a knack for both character and historical authenticity, making this journey into Newport's Gilded Age a fascinating and fulfilling tale. From the well-described details of the surroundings and costumes to the social structures at play and the strictures of upper and lower class lives, Morin captures an era where women are ready to break out, but the world is not yet ready for them. Pearl and Ginevra have the same spirit for freedom and choice, but they are distinctly well presented and developed as very different women who complement one another's misgivings. Gilded Summers is sure to suit fans of the likes of Downton Abbey, but it delivers far deeper emotional connections and realistic portrayals and is a highly recommended historical read."
