Publisher's Summary

Polly has always been the high-flier of the family, with the glamorous lifestyle to match.… Clare is a single mum with two children, struggling to make ends meet in a ramshackle cottage. The two sisters are poles apart and barely on speaking terms.

But then Polly’s fortunes change unexpectedly. Left penniless and with nowhere else to go, she’s forced back to the village where she and Clare grew up, and the sisters find themselves living together for the first time in years. With an old flame reappearing for Polly, a blossoming new career for Clare and a long-buried family secret in the mix, sparks are sure to fly. Unless the two women have more in common than they first thought?

    "Funny and Easy Listening"

    This book was a brilliant "listen" it was entertaining and heart felt. The narrator did a brilliant job of keeping is fresh and I wish there was a follow on book as I really enjoyed the two sisters dynamic and wanted to hear more about their future lives. Well written and a must read or "listen"

    Really like Polly and how her character developed

    "Not as cleaver as you may think"
    Would you listen to Summer With My Sister again? Why?

    Yes I will listen again. There are always new angles and missed snippets to be gleaned from good books..


    What other book might you compare Summer With My Sister to, and why?

    Sweet Temptation this one is better.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Rawson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Kate Rawson is an excellent narrator. I have read "Sweet Temptation" this one is better


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not possible I have a life to lead


    Any additional comments?

    I found this a good read. However I feel it difficult to believe that such a high flyer coould really be as silly as she some times is.

    Story
    "Funny, sad, entertaining"

    I liked the way the psyche shift of the main character was developed in the unfolding storyline. Story Made me laugh so much in places, although it was sad at the same time, or at least fraught with dysfunctional ways of being. But All is well that ends well. Only negative was the unrealistic Hampshire accents. Sounded more like West Country.

    Story
    "Excellent"
    What did you like most about Summer With My Sister?

    The two sisters are total opposites, but when they are forced to live together for the summer, they both learn important lessons from each other. Polly in particular changed from a very cold, self centered London yuppie to a much nicer person who realised that she had all her priorities wrong. The gradual change in her personality was good to listen to. Clair was the one that I felt sorry for and was pleased with the outcome and her change of circumstances. This author is very good, she gets you to understand the people she is writing about, you can really get into their heads.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When the two sisters finally spoke about their guilt about the death of their brother and came to realise that they weren't to blame after all. It really brought them closer together


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was just a good easy read. Some comical parts, some sad.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like the narrator. I disagree with another reviewer who said she should only read children's books. I thought the expression she put into the narration was excellent, her accents were good(not perfect) and she was easy to listen to.

    Story
    "Needs a new narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book, but not the audio version with the current narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Rawson’s performances?

    Absolutely not. I think she should only narrate children's books. I have live in both Hampshire and the West Country and although the book is supposedly set in Hampshire it is one of the best West Country accents I have heard.
