Synopsis

Those Were the Days by Lynda Page

Those Were the Days is Lynda Page's fourth saga set in Jolly's holiday camp. It brings the nostalgia of English summer holidays beside the seaside in the 1960s vividly to life. There's seldom a dull moment at Jolly's holiday camp in high season, with the campers and staff intent on having the time of their lives. But in the middle of winter, when the campsite is shut, an eerie silence descends upon the ballroom, the big wheel at the fun fair stops turning and the swimming pool lies empty. But this winter things are about to change: Drina Jolly's daughter-in-law Rhonnie returns with her young son to oversee some major renovations that bring the holiday camp to life out-of-season. And when the summer comes, Rhonnie and the team are ready to give the holidaymakers at Jolly's a holiday to remember for the rest of their days...

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Daran Bellingham

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Why I love @lovereadinguk? It's in the name - as dedicated lovers of reading, they are perfect matchmakers for helping me find my next read!

Catherine Jenkins

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
