Summer in the City Summary

Summer in the City: A poignant and heart-warming novel of love and loss by Pauline McLynn

Lucy White can't quite believe what's happened to her happy, ordinary life. Ending up homeless - not to mention husbandless - has come as an almighty shock. All she wants to do is lie low for a while, but when she arrives in a quiet street in South London she's in for a surprise.

The residents of Farewell Square are anything but quiet. There's a housewife with a secret that needs to be shared, a publicist whose behaviour outside office hours would shock his clients and an artist who can't seem to control her lodgers. They're as intrigued by Lucy as she is by them, and as she's drawn into their midst, she realises that life can be kind as well as cruel. And that no one has to be lonely if they don't want to be.

Summer in the City Reviews

Praise for Pauline McLynn: 'Scandal, infidelity, secrets and souffle are all explored with a healthy dollop of humour * Express *
Hilariously funny follow-up to Something for the Weekend. With the perfect balance of humour, adventure and romance, Pauline McLynn makes crafting witty, fast-paced fiction look like a doddle * OK! *
A surprisingly gentle, relaxed story... confident, assured * The Times *
Packed with cheeky sarcasm and wit * Company *
An upbeat, chatty novel * Daily Mail *
If this book receives the critical judgement it deserves, it will forever bury the ghost of a demented housekeeper and proclaim the emergence of one of the most interesting Irish writers in years * Sunday Business Post *
Funny and snappy...will sit well on a shelf next to such writers as Cathy Kelly, Morag Prunty and Marian Keyes * Sunday Tribune *
