Review: ‘Six Weeks In Summer’ Helen Meikle

Book Reviewsixweeksinsummer_cover_final

‘Six Weeks in Summer’, written by Helen Meikle has a strong voice. The protagonist, Meg Cornwell, a freshly widowed, isolated woman, pulled at my heart- strings. A woman who had been overshadowed by her husband and his family, gradually begins to find herself and blossoms, as she discovers her strengths and shakes off the past.

Meikle captivates her audience, drawing them into a group of disparate characters. These lives very soon become entangled and, I too, felt part of this coterie, not wanting the story to finish.

The bullying antagonists are duly dealt with in an inventive way, bringing joy and warmth to the fragility of those other broken lives.

For those of you who have enjoyed Alexander McCall Smith’s tales of Scotland, here is an Australian story that is equally charming.

    So glad I found your delightful blog with its mix of prose, photographs, and art. I’ve been needing a new author to try — seems like my reading has been in a bit of a rut — and I’m going to five Six Weeks in Summer a try.

      It is interesting that we both were reminded of the same series. I hadn’t read your review before writing mine. I had the same protective feeling for the characters! 🙂
