Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson has the elements to make me fall in love with the book. I enjoy it, but I don't fall in love with the story. Helen Simonson's beautiful writing submerges the reader into the world of East Sussex, England; but the story is slow and feels as if I have read it before. I wait for a unique twist on the theme, but that seems missing.
