9780061988226: The Summer Garden: A Love Story

The climactic book in Paullina Simons’ epic trilogy that began with the international bestseller, the heartbreaking ‘The Bronze Horseman’.

From the bestselling author of The Girl in Times Square, comes the magnificent conclusion to the saga that was set in motion when Tatiana fell in love with her Red Army officer, Alexander Belov, in wartime Leningrad in 1941.

Tatiana and Alexander have since suffered the worst the twentieth century had to offer. After years of separation, they are miraculously reunited in America, the land of their dreams. They have a beautiful son, Anthony. They have proved to each other that their love is greater than the vast evil of the world. But though they are only in their twenties, in their hearts they are old, and they are strangers. In the climate of fear and mistrust of the Cold War, dark forces are at work in the US that threaten their life and their family. Can they be happy? Or will the ghosts of yesterday reach out to blight even the destiny of their firstborn son?

Epic in scope, masterfully told, The Summer Garden is a novel of unique and devastating emotional power that spans two thirds of the twentieth century, and three continents.

THE SUMMER GARDEN: For love, for beauty. For ever.

Review:

Praise for ‘Tatiana and Alexander’:

'This has everything a romance glutton could wish for: a bold, talented and dashing hero, a heart-stopping love affair…It also has – thank goodness – a welcome sense of humour and discernable characters rather than ciphers.'
Victoria Moore, Daily Mail

Praise for ‘The Bronze Horseman’:

‘Pulling off the passionate love story embedded in a truly epic narrative is a difficult thing to do. Margaret Mitchell's ‘Gone With the Wind’ remains the blueprint for the genre, while Tolstoy's ‘War and Peace’ carries off the literary honours…it's quickly apparent that the Russian-born author Paullina Simons has the measure of this kind of epic romantic saga…She is able to make some powerful statements about the durability of the human spirit, but never at the expense of descriptive passages refulgent with power and beauty.’ Barry Forshaw, Amazon.com

Praise for ‘Tully’:

‘Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you’ll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next…Read it and weep – literally.’
Company
