    This is a terrible book about terrible people who do terrible nonsensical and incredible and I mean really not credible things to themselves each other and other people Yet it's all so beautifully described You just want to go on reading it no matter what just so you can stay in this garden with these flowers and this hot summer sun and all this beautiful foodBut before you know it several hours of yo

    Unfortunately this book was not as suspenseful and drama filled as the synopsis would have one believe It was actually kind of flat There were some interesting things happening in the story but Dun failed to make me really care It was all rather boringThe story is told through the first person perspective of Nina Nina character could have been interesting but she failed to connect to me I wanted her to be int

    Helen Dun is a prolific and award winning author yet this is only the fourth of her novels I have read I now think I really must make an effort to read the rest This 1996 novel is an impressive family drama with a fascinating psychological slant Dun’s excellent writing with its sultry descriptions of place draws the reader into the Sussex countryside during a scorching summer and the lives of a group of rather unlikeable character

    I don't often mistakenly re read a book But it seems that I have done so with two Helen Dun books I can't understand why as both were excellent and very memorable But as with A spell of Winter I realized about a third of the way through that I had read it before However I couldn't remember the end and in fact it didn't seem familiar towards the end so perhaps I never finished it also unusual for me Anyway it was very enjoyable Dun has an am

    Sibling RivalryIsabel has just had her first baby after a difficult delivery Nina a freelance photographer comes to spend time with her sister at her house in England's South Downs but almost immediately begins an intense sexual affair with Isabel's husband It is Nina who tells the story; she is a warm sympathetic character while Isabel seems moody and neurotic; and the sexual descriptions are terrific All the same there is clearly something wrong
