*From the publisher*

Set in the summer of 1948, A CERTAIN SUMMER is a richly evocative debut novel of love and intrigue during the aftermath of World War II. In the idyllic summer community of Wauregan, where nothing ever changes, the mystique and serenest tranquility has been mined with the traumas of husbands returned from the war, and wives who cannot imagine the horrors they experienced in combat. Scarred by battle, these men longed for their families and their island refuge, only to find themselves emotionally distant, and struggling to reenter society.

 

As the community attempts to recover, Helen Wadsworth is seeking the truth about her husband, who mysteriously disappeared on an OSS operation in France. But while she waits and hopes, two other men fall in love with her, creating a complicated romantic triangle. In the background of this world of privilege are Helen’s fourteen-year-old son, Jack; Kathleen, the Irish housekeeper who has worked for the Wadsworths for two generations; and a heroic German Shepherd that served in the Pacific theater.

 

Part mystery, part love story, and part insider’s view of a rarified, private world, A CERTAIN SUMMERwill resonate with every reader who has ever dreamt of a special summer place.
