Indian Summer by Marcia Willett

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A Devon country estate with the big house running into financial trouble and the younger brother, a retired actor, coming to the rescue. It is full of familiar characters from her previous books but you can pick up most of the threads if you haven’t read the rest. It’s got all the estate problems of restoring cottages, the possible sale of the Home Farm and the many characters affected by maintaining such a place. She is a lovely author and, although this is not one of her best, it is very rewarding.

If you like Marcia Willett you might also like to read books by Eileen Ramsay, Jojo Moyes and Maeve Binchy.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Indian Summer by Marcia Willett

Some memories are best forgotten...Some won't ever go away...For retired actor Sir Mungo, his quiet, home village in Devon provides a perfect setting. Close by are his brother and his wife, and the rural location makes his home the ideal getaway for his dear friends in London. Among those is Kit, who comes to stay for the summer, bringing with her a letter from her first and only love, Jake, and a heart in turmoil. Years have passed since they last saw each other, and now he has written to Kit asking if they could meet again. As the summer unfolds, secrets are uncovered that will shatter the sleepy community, and even tear a family apart. But those involved soon realize that the only way to move forward might be to confront the past.
