Love and Summer by William Trevor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
At the beginning of this book, you will feel like you're on a time travel vacation back to a beautiful, peaceful, isolated 1950's rural Irish town. The setting is just that perfect. And then....you begin to see what goes on inside the townspeople, the scars that the past has left on them, the dreams that hold them in limbo, and you'll almost wish you'd been happy with observing the landscape and left the people alone.
This is a very good, but very sad story. It's southern gothic set in Ireland.
