Caro knows how to be a mother - advising her grown-up daughters on career and relationship worries. She knows how to be a grandmother - enjoying the hectic energy of her three-year-old grandson. She knows how to be a daughter - helping her aging mother retain her independence. She thought she knew everything about being a wife, but when her husband suddenly leaves her for another woman, everything is thrown in the air.

So, when a chance meeting introduces her to Damir - younger, intriguing and attentive - she realises that opening up to a man so different from everyone else in her life, might also mean getting to know who she really is...

Our Summer Together is an uplifting story about family, friendship and the happy surprise of finding love later in life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for the uplifting, feelgood read of the year:

Our Summer Together is a true celebration of love and life in all its forms; full of joy, hope and triumph

-- Cathy Bramley
A lovely read...like the blossom bursting into life on the cherry trees -- Jo Thomas
Warm, wise and wonderfully addictive...this is a book that really speaks to our generation -- Helen Lederer
I LOVED Our Summer Together. It's the perfect, intelligent, moreish, uplifting read, with characters who are completely believable and real...poignant and uplifting -- LUCY ATKINS
Loved it...a beautiful story of coming back to life in middle age, full of love, joy and hope -- LIZ FENWICK
Fanny has made this little corner of womankind, with all its humour and trials and tribulations, her own -- PENNY VINCENZI
Move over, Joanna Trollope - Fanny Blake has arrived. No-one does family and friendship better than Fanny: the crises, the dilemmas, the divided loyalties, the betrayals. Our Summer Together is the charming story of a woman who has the courage to follow her heart despite everyone's disapproval. Warm, funny, wise and relatable. A perfect summer read -- VERONICA HENRY
Warm, wise and beautifully observed. No one understands the middle-aged women's 5am fears and unexpected joys better than Fanny Blake -- TAMMY COHEN
A truly thought-provoking and inspiring read. So much we do not know and have yet to learn. I loved it! -- PENNY PARKES
A hopeful, warm, generous-hearted novel about how love transcends difference -- JULIE COHEN
This is a lovely, warm story about second chances -- Sarra Manning * RED MAGAZINE *
This warm, wise, witty book is about love in its many complicated manifestations: love of men, love of children and grand-children, home and friends. It's also a joyous account of how a recovering people pleaser takes control of her own life when the odds are stacked against her. Fanny Blake's gift is for making her characters so real they leap off the page. I loved it -- JULIA GREGSON
Loved Our Summer Together...So engaging, insightful and honest about marriage, motherhood and second chances -- KATE EBERLEN
A love story with a positive message that mature women can enjoy passion and romance. -- Karen Byrom * MY WEEKLY *
A publisher for many years before becoming a freelance journalist and writer, this acutely observant storyteller's warm, wise and uplifting novels have given new heart and hope to middle-aged women who feared that life and love ended with the arrival of the big 60. -- Pam Norfolk * LANCASHRE EVENING POST *
Fanny Blake writes brilliantly about women of a certain age, and this latest is her best yet. It's richly emotional, sharply perceptive and full of fabulous lifestyle detail * DAILY MAIL *

In the wake of Deborah Moggach's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (and its hugely popular film
adaptation), the appetite and need for stories about love and relationships in later life has never been
greater.A gorgeous, if slightly indulgent, summer read.

* THE LADY *
A great summer read full of hope. -- Aine Toner * WOMAN'S WAY *

“Just relax and enjoy”

I am rather a fan of Fanny Blake's books - which is probably quite unusual as they don't involve murder!
