About the Author: Helen Dunmore

I was born in December 1952, in Yorkshire, the second of four children My father was the eldest of twelve, and this extended family has no doubt had a strong influence on my life, as have my own children In a large family you hear a great many stories You also come to understand very early that stories hold quite different meanings for different listeners, and can be recast from many viewpoints

    Helen Dun has long been one of my favourite authors and, with the sad news of her death this year 2017 I wanted to go back to the first of her novels which I read Published in 1996, this is the fourth of her novels, but the first which I came across and which introduced me to her work.This novel is set within the heat of summer Nina is a photographer in London, but she visits the countryside to stay with her sister, I

    Two sisters with a secret.I was hooked from the start.Very compelling story of love and how people remember things differently.What really happened to Colin Set in a heatwave.Nina comes to look after her older sister Isabel after the birth of her first child.Things aren t quite as they seem as the past comes back to haunt Isabel.This darkly strange psychological thriller will have you on the edge of your seat as it reaches it

    Unfortunately this book was not as suspenseful and drama filled as the synopsis would have one believe It was actually kind of flat There were some interesting things happening in the story but Dun failed to make me really care It was all rather boring.The story is told through the first person perspective of Nina Nina character could have been interesting but she failed to connect to me I wanted her to be interesting and exciting bu

    This is a terrible book about terrible people who do terrible, nonsensical, and incredible and I mean really not credible things to themselves, each other and other people Yet it s all so beautifully described You just want to go on reading it no matter what, just so you can stay in this garden with these flowers and this hot summer sun, and all this beautiful food.But before you know it, several hours of your life have been devoured Then at

    Isabel and Nina are sisters When Nina was young, Isabel looked after her devotedly Now Isabel needs help and Nina tries to provide it Complicating the sisters relationship are Richard, Isabel s husband, Edward, Isabel s gay friend, and Colin, Isabel and Nina s brother, who died as a baby.I enjoyed this book very much It has enough mystery behind the scenes to add suspense and the characters of ...

    Prachtig en vlot lezend boek dat je bij de hand neemt en niet meer los laat tot aan de laatste pagina.Het boek vertelt over de relatie tussen twee zussen, hun kindertijd, hun geheimen, hun verre herinneringen en het ultieme offer.De beschrijvingen in dit boek zijn zeer beeldend een film rolt zich af voor je ogen zelden las ik zo n mooie beschrijvingen van rijp fruit vijgen , of over het maken van wilde zalm in ho...

    I read this book in a fascinating, one stretch read drawn into its spell by a web of mesmeric images Dun excels at uncovering the dark side in relationships among family members The haunting word pictures she paints of the human mindscape mark her out to be a writer of no mean abilities I only wis...

    Helen Dun is a prolific and award winning author, yet this is only the fourth of her novels I have read I now think I really must make an effort to read the rest This 1996 novel is an impressive family drama with a fascinating psychological slant Dun s excellent writing, with its sultry descriptions of place, draws the reader into the Sussex countryside during a scorching summer, and the lives of a group of rather unlikeable characters There is a kind of chilly sensuality

    Sibling RivalryIsabel has just had her first baby, after a difficult delivery Nina, a freelance photographer, comes to spend time with her sister at her house in England s South Downs, but almost immediately begins an intense sexual affair with Isabel s husband It is Nina who tells the story she is a warm sympathetic character while Isabel seems moody and neurotic and the sexual descriptions are terrific All the same, there is clearly something wrong in this family portrait, and D

    I don t often mistakenly re read a book But it seems that I have done so with two Helen Dun books I can t understand why, as both were excellent and very memorable But, as with A spell of Winter, I realized about a third of the way through that I had read it before However, I couldn t remember the end, and in fact, it didn t seem familiar towards the end so perhaps I never finished it also unusual for me Anyway, it was very enjoyable Dun has an amazing ability to describe things in ways t
