Swallowtail Summer – Erica James

Swallowtail Summer - Erica JamesSynopsis: They thought they were friends for life – until one summer, everything changed . . .

But widower Alastair has been faced with a few of life’s surprises recently. Now, he is about to shock his circle of friends with the decisions he has made – and the changes it will mean for them all. For some, it feels like the end. For others, it might just be the beginning . . .

There are dramatic moments which are challenging to read, but her descriptions of the Norfolk Broads are exquisite and as usual with an Erica James novel it is well written and thought-provoking.
