Lauren Willig ô 8 Download Download ☆ The Summer Country 108 The New York Times bestselling historical novelist delivers her biggest boldest and most ambitious novel yet a sweeping dramatic Victorian epic of lost love lies jealousy and rebellion set in colonial Barbados1854 From Bristol to Barbados Emily Dawson has always been the poor cousin in a prosperous merchant clan merely a vicar’s daughter and a reform minded vicar’s daughter at that Everyone knows that the family’s lucrative shipping business will go to her cousin Adam one day But when her grandfather dies E. It s not often that I come across a book where I fall in love almost instantly not just with the characters but also with the setting the story the writing basically everything about the book from the first page to the very last It s also increasingly rare nowadays for me to get so swept up in a book that I lose track of time and next thing I know I ve finished the book in practically one sitting and at 480 pages this was certainly no small feat In her newest release The Summer Country author Lauren Willig delivers a beautifully written sweeping historical saga that felt epic in scope and magnitude yet did not feel at all like a chore to readSet in 19th century Barbados this family saga spans 4 decades and revolves around two neighboring sugar plantations on the island Peverills and the adjacent Beckles Told in a dual timeline format that alternates between 1854 where we are introduced to Emily Dawson a vicar s daughter who unexpectedly inherits Peverills when her grandfather dies and 1812 with the story of the original owner of Peverills Charles Davenant and his relationship with Jenny a slave in the household of the neighboring plantation Beckles These two separate narratives involving two different sets of characters who live under completely different circumstances don t appear to correlate at first glance but as the story progresses the two narratives converge into a seamless brilliantly woven story that absolutely blew me away It is usually the case with these dual timeline stories that one narrative is stronger than the other but with this book both narratives were eually strong and were so well done that I honestly can t say that I preferred one over the other Another aspect of this book that made it so endearing to me was the strong character development especially when it came to the female characters in the story With historical fiction covering a time and place where society s conventions weren t necessarily favorable to women I love how Willig was able to make every single female character in this story strong yet realistic balancing each character s distinct personality with the historical limitations of that time period For me one of the things that set this book apart from other works of historical fiction was its amazing use of language to convey a time and place that felt so authentic I found myself completely immersed in the time period and setting The prose specifically the uality of the writing elevated this book beyond just being great historical fiction this was written so well in the language of the time that it actually read like a classic novel which is something rarely seen with books published in modern day The fact that Willig was able to render a time and place Barbados in the 19th century so far removed from the current time period 21st century Europe or the United States in a manner that made it come to life so realistically speaks to her tremendous skill as a writer The amount of research that went into this book was astounding prior to reading this book I had no idea about the historical significance of Barbados and the slave trade that was so prevalent there during the early nineteenth century nor did I know much about the cholera epidemic that occurred in that part of the world back in the 1850s One of the things I love most about reading historical fiction is learning about time periods people events that I knew nothing about previously this book not only taught me a lot it did so with masterful storytelling that was captivating and had me 100% emotionally invested in the story as well as in its characters to the point that I didn t want this unforgettable story to end I m a picky reader and I don t give 5 stars very often but this one absolutely deserved it All in all this is a perfect summer read one that is immersive captivating and will definitely make you feel as though you ve been transported to another world Highly recommended Received ARC from William Morrow HarperCollins via NetGalley
