Voices in Summer - Rosamunde Pilcher
Title: Voices in Summer
Author: Rosamunde Pilcher
Genre: Fiction
Rating: 4/5
# pages: 190
Date read: December, 2009

Rosamunde Pilcher invites you into long summer days on the coast of Cornwall-and into the stormy heart of newlywed Laura Haverstock. Shy, recovering from illness, and away from her husband, Laura's is a fearful heart on the verge of intimate discoveries...about herself, her family, and the source of true love within her.

Usually Rosamunde Pilcher's shorter books aren't as well-written as her long ones, but this is the exception that proves the rule. It's a simple plot that works very well in the 190 pages she used for it, and her character descriptions were thorough and believable. I'd guessed the who of the ending but not the why, which meant the book avoided being too predictable, and I was very glad to be proven wrong about both Alec and Gabriel.

Sweet book, and perfect for a lazy afternoon.
