The Colour of Summer

You are currently viewing The Colour of Summer


A gentle and charming book, the final in the trilogy, brimming with the bluest skies of summer; a houseful of noisy, dusty renovations; budding romances; troublesome tenants; family secrets, loss and grief, and last but certainly not least, forgiveness, love and the long-overdue tranquility of solace.

Abigail Carey, winding down her second year at Winfield Hall, the Georgian sandstone mansion she shares with co-owner Edward Townsend, is finally fulfilling her dream of offering a haven to deserving and creative tenants, as she works on the next phase of her own artistic design business. Abi is a kind and compassionate landlord – characteristics that spill over into her private life as she struggles to offer support to her difficult and deeply unhappy sister Ellen, amidst a backdrop of what can only be seen as buried family trauma centering on their mother’s death and their secretive and dismissively-unfriendly Aunt Claire.

Edward Townsend, a somewhat gentle man who hates confrontation in any form, is challenged with all-the-more difficult tenants as well as a continuing long-term crisis with his own troubled brother and father.

As the summer skies lengthen, and Abi and Edward may or may not finally begin to realize their blossoming feelings for each other, could it be that the “House in the Clouds”, their own hard-earned personal paradise, has finally helped lead them (and those they love) to a place of healing, grace and recovery?
