My " in a nutshell" summary...
Imogen lives in a house called Herne Hill in the 1840's and Julia inherits it in 2009...Julia is left to discover all of its secrets.
My thoughts after reading this book...
Loved this book but for some odd reason I am reading far too many "jumping into the past" books. This one hops from the 1840's to 2009 and involves Julia, Imogen and a painting. Jobless and newly fired...Julia inherits a house in London where she finds a mysterious painting while cleaning out this house. Of course there is rivalry among cousins...once she gets to England, a potential love interest...that would be Nick...and mystery. Sigh! Imogen...poor sweet beautiful Imogen enters into a loveless marriage with an older man. Then falls in love with a painter and her life takes a totally different twist. Zip to Julia and 2009...the inherited house...finding a painting...meeting Nick...and working out the issues in her own life.
What I loved about this book...
I loved Julia's story...the tragic loss of her mother...her father's sort of closed mouthed attitude about her mother's death and the idea that Julia always felt left out. I loved both stories...Imogen's and Julia's. Imogen thought she was getting a husband that would share his life with her...instead she got a childless marriage.
Loved, too, when Julia told Natalie...her cousin...to stay away...that spicy jealousy because their aunt left the house to Julia made Natalie the girl you love to dislike...lol.
If you love interesting characters and a flash back to the past...this book would be perfect for you!
The book is about a woman named Julia, who recently received an inheritance from a relative she doesn't know. She travels to England to presumably clean up and sell the house, but instead finds mystery and romance she wasn't bargaining for. Julia's story is also interwoven with Imogen's, a woman living in the house 150 years earlier. Living in Victorian England, Imogen is repressed like most women of the time, but she manages to have an adventure all her own as well. The two women's stories are similar, despite the difference in time, and they both must make choices that will change their lives.
This book is engaging and entertaining. If you like history, romance, and a little bit of mystery, this is a great book for you. Like its name, <em>That Summer</em> is a perfect book for the summer, though you'll want to finish it right away!
Both heriones are equally appealing in their longing and loss.
THAT SUMMER is beautifully romantic and captivating. I loved it!
