LoveReading View on One Endless Summer

Pacey, poignant and eminently entertaining, this bittersweet book about living life to the full makes a wonderfully warm-hearted companion to take into the garden on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Lizzie, Jaddi and Samantha have been planning to take a trip of a lifetime together for a whopping nine years but, sadly, it’s taken Lizzie’s terminal cancer diagnosis to prompt them to actually do it. Well, that and the involvement of a TV production company who are funding the trip and will be there to document every step of the friends’ final shared journey.

While Lizzie now feels a strange sense of liberation and is ready to embrace the adventure, stunning Jaddi and (seemingly) sorted Samantha find themselves having to face big questions about their own lives, and the bonds of friendship deepen as their voyage progresses. Naturally, there are moving moments and tears along the way, (not to mention a rather unexpected twist towards the end), but there’s also laughter, and much love. ~ Joanne Owen
