An author who has received international critical acclaim for his exquisite prose, William Trevor saw his novel The Story of Lucy Gault short-listed for the prestigious Booker Prize. Love and Summer tells the tale of Ellie Dillahan, an orphan entered into a bleak future with the man she wed. As the story unfolds, Ellie’s life is thrown into tumult by a fateful encounter with another man.
“What other living writer could so regularly follow his own masterpieces …with another and another?” (New York Times Book Review)
"A triumph of style and content." (The Herald)
"Marvellously written, consummately plotted. . . . One of the joys of Love and Summer is the perfection of its Irish geography and the wealth of emotions attached to it. . . . As brief and beautiful as summer itself, it is a book to be read and reread, as perfect a thing as our blemished world can offer." (The Globe and Mail)
