    Growing up in her sleepy Cornish village, dreaming of being a writer, sixteen year old Lou has always wondered about the grand Cardew house which has stood empty for years. And when the owners arrive for the summer: a handsome, dashing brother and sister, Lou is quite swept off her feet and into a world of moonlit cocktail parties and glamour beyond her wildest dreams. But, as she grows closer to the Cardews, is she abandoning her own ambitions... and is there something darker lurking at the heart of the Cardew family?

    Gleebooks review:
    Imagine a melding of Dodie Smith’s I Capture the Castle and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby set in Cornwall during the summer of 1929. (If you’ve not read either of these classics, do add them to your must-read list!) After her sister Alice marries, 17-year-old Lou is adrift, missing her closest relationship. She idles through the days reading in the library of a nearby deserted mansion, access to which is determined by the tides. When the young socialites who own the property return for the summer Lou is intrigued, covertly observing them until she is discovered and swept into their life of parties and excess. Adoption into their milieu further alienates her from her own family, and especially from Alice. It’s a summer of transformation, of revelations, bringing an end to Lou’s sheltered innocence as well as her entrée into unexpected romance. Gorgeous cover and a story that lingers like the heat of a long lazy summer. Lynndy
