My Summer Reads: My Book of the Summer

 
At the beginning of July I compiled my reading list for the summer. I've now read all of the books on the list so now it's time to pick my Book of the Summer.
 
The books on my summer reading list have been a mix of fun, romantic comedies to beautiful novels set in gorgeous locations. While I've enjoyed all of the books on my list, one book in particular stood out. For me, Liberty Silk was a real page-turner. I devoured the book, gorging myself on the lives of Jessie, Lisa and Cat. It was such a great read and I'd highly recommend it.
 
 
 
One beautiful dress is the key to three brave women's destinies.

France 1919: Jessie is celebrating the last heady days of her honeymoon. But when her husband suddenly disappears she finds herself bereft. Until a chance encounter thrusts her into the centre of the intoxicating world of Parisian high life.

Hollywood 1945: Lisa has come a long way from her quiet, unassuming life in London and is taking Hollywood by storm. But all that glitters is not gold, and as the smoke and mirrors of the lifestyle she so longed for shatter around her there are some secrets she can never escape.

London 1965: Cat, headstrong and independent, drawn to danger and passionately opposed to injustice, has no idea of the legacy that precedes her. Once past secrets are unveiled, she has the chance to find out what liberty really means...

An evocative story of survival, betrayal and the invincibility of love.

  2. Hello Jennifer, your review of Liberty Silk captures the soul of Kate's story. You might be interested in reviewing my latest The Interview. Described in Sunday Mail as 'literary ventriloquism', I think you'll enjoy. Let me know..
