Love and Summer by William Trevor

Love and SummerLove and Summer by William Trevor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love and Summer is a very well-written story, where the dialogue and simple description steal the show. The way in which Trevor sets up issues and slowly reveals their backgrounds and solutions is subtle and understated, lacking in drama, and thus transforming his literature into a deepening look at a time period and personal journey through ideas rather than schlock. It all fits together in a sound package that I quite liked, however, if you are looking for a thrilling page-turner, this book wouldn't be for you.

Direct Contact Blog Tour Schedule

We're just a week away from the kickoff tour for my newest release, Direct Contact. This book was a bit of a stretch for me, as it's the first time I've delved into science fiction, but I'm quite pleased with the result, and I hope you'll be, too.

This tour is going to be attached to a giveaway, where three people will win a free copy of the book, and one grand-prize winner will get a $25 Amazon gift card! I'd like to thank all the blogs participating for their time and space!
