Library Journal Review

Summer love takes on a whole new meaning in this contrived yet compelling adventure in the life of Madge Bridges. Set against the romantic Cornish coast, the plot captures glimpses of Madge as she faces the complications of childhood, adolescence, motherhood, and old age. Each summer brings about a permanent change for her and her family--sometimes replenishing, sometimes devastating--while reaffirming the social characteristics that distinguish the temporary inhabitants from the natives. Sketched in a series of annual episodes (which span more than 60 years), the book is relatively enjoyable although it leans in the direction of soap opera. Also, the ``happy ending'' in somewhat distasteful.-- Heidi Schwartz, ``Business Interiors,'' Red Bank, N.J. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
