"You taste of rain," he said, kissing her. "People say I married her for her money," he thought contentedly, and for the moment was full of the self-respect that loving her had given him.'

Kate Heron is a wealthy, charming widow who marries, much to the disapproval of friends and neighbours, a man ten years her junior: the attractive, feckless Dermot. Then comes the return of Kate's old friend Charles - intelligent, kind and now widowed, with his beautiful young daughter. Kate watches happily as their two families are drawn together, finding his presence reassuringly familiar, but slowly she becomes aware of subtle undercurrents that begin to disturb the calm surface of their friendship. Before long, even she cannot ignore the gathering storm . . .

Witty, hilarious, astringent, devastating - her impeccable style can do anything and with seemingly effortless ease Neel Mukherjee 'One of Taylor's best novels' Rebecca Abrams, New Statesman 'It's smashing .When you've finished In a Summer Season, you are totally fired up to read every book that Taylor ever wrote' Val Hennessy Jane Austen, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Pym, Elizabeth Bowen - soul-sisters all ANNE TYLER Her stories remain with one, indelibly, as though they had been some turning point in one's own experience ELIZABETH BOWEN One of the most underrated novelists of the twentieth century ANTONIA FRASER One of Taylor's best novels NEW STATESMAN
