It made me laugh and cry. I really enjoyed this book and im looking forward to reading other books from Alice Adams.
I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook.
The story was compelling and sensitive.
I enjoyed the 'invincible summer' theme throughout and enjoyed the characters and their experiences; deepening in meaning and purpose.

I am disappointed with this book as it seems somehow uneven and patchy. Although there are four main characters, the emphasis, in the first half of the book at least, was on one of them, Eva. Later the other characters' stories are given more airing, but by about the three-quarter mark I was bored and rushed through listening to the remaining chapters. I will, in due course, listen again to the final part of the last chapter as I have the impression this was a kind of "summing-up". I'm aware that this is Alice Adams' first published novel and do not wish to be over-critical, but it's not a book I will be talking about in my book group!
