“William Trevor's novel of forbidden, secret love in a small Irish town is sad, beautiful, deeply felt, and replete, as always, with gorgeous writing. I loved this story this so much.”

Description

Love and Summer, the latest item from William Trevor's venerable suitcase, is a thrilling work of art."
-The New York Times Book Review


In spare, exquisite prose, master storyteller William Trevor presents a haunting love story about the choices of the heart, and the passions and frustrations of three lives during one long summer. Ellie is a shy orphan girl from the hill country, married to a man whose life has been blighted by an unspeakable tragedy. She lives a quiet life in the Irish village of Rathmoye, until she meets Florian Kilderry, a young photographer preparing to leave Ireland and his past forever. The chance intersection of these two lost souls sets in motion a poignant love affair that requires Ellie to make an impossible choice.
