The Summer Garden by Paullina Simons

The Summer GardenDon't let the size of this tome put you off - you should find yourself flying through the pages. If you've gotten this far and read The Bronze Horseman and The Bridge to Holy Cross then you'll be dying to finish the series and reach a resolution for Tatiana and Alexander. You won't be disappointed.

I don't want to give anything away but this was definitely written at the same calibre as the first novel. It was just as gut-wrenching and just as powerful. Finishing these three books, gave me such a feeling of satisfaction. This story, of two people in incredible times, THIS is what reading is all about.

This is the kind of book you dream about at night. These are the kind of characters who infiltrate your thoughts all day. This is the kind of story that stays with you for your lifetime. I may never have lived in Lenningrad during WWII; I may go to my grave having never seen Russia but I have experienced it with a ferocity that only an imagination can conjure. I have lived someone else's lifetime within my own...and what an incredible lifetime it was.

These are novels I will revisit again one day. I cannot praise them highly enough. I wish I could read them for the first time again!
