Love and Summer by William Trevor

Love and SummerLove and Summer by William Trevor

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A man is devastated at the death of his wife and child.............a brother and sister deal with the death of their mother..........a young girl comes to live on a farm from a home for foundling elderly man with dementia is forever living in a time and place long gone.......An unknown man on a bicycle interrupts life in the town.

All of these characters are developed into a picture of life of common Irish people, who influence one another in rather subtle ways. Trevor is brilliant at his characterizations and we can almost feel the emotion as their lives are played out. Love and loss and guilt and pain and redemption all lie in wait.
