Six summers to fall in love. One summer to change everything.

Liv and Finn meet six summers ago working in a bar on the rugged Cornish coastline, their futures full of promise. When a night of passion ends in devastating tragedy they are bound together inextricably. But Finn’s life is in LA with his band, and Liv’s is in Cornwall with her family – so they make a promise. Finn will return every year, and if they are single they will spend the summer together.

This summer Liv crosses paths with Tom – a mysterious new arrival in her hometown. As the wildflowers and heather come into bloom, they find themselves falling for one another. For the first time Liv can imagine a world where her heart isn’t broken every autumn. Now Liv must make an impossible choice. And when she discovers the shocking reason that Tom has left home, she’ll need to trust her heart even more . . .


Review:

Poignant, heart-tugging, and nostalgic!

Seven Summers is pensive, absorbing tale that sweeps you away to the shores of Cornwall and into the life of Liv, a young woman who, after falling in love with a local songwriter who now calls Los Angeles home, spends the next seven years fondly anticipating and savouring the warm sunny months when she finally gets to spend a few days of joy and pleasure with the one man who will always own her heart.

The writing is rich and intimate. The characters are multilayered, genuine, and flawed. And the compelling plot is a delightfully clever blend of life, loss, family, tragedy, love, heartbreak, relationship dynamics, and lighthearted beach read.

Overall, Seven Summers is another immersive, moving, astute tale by Toon that highlights once again her innate ability to delve into all the messy emotional and psychological entanglements that exist between family members, friends, and lovers and proves why year after year she’s the queen of must-read novels.
