I don't read a lot of historical fiction, but was intrigued by the excerpt and lucky enough to win an advance copy. The Myth of Perpetual Summer was captivating and heartbreaking, and I couldn't put it down. It alternated between Tallulah's childhood and present day, as she returned home for the first time since leaving nine years ago without telling anyone where she was going. The Myth of Perpetual Summer is about confronting your past, seeing the events through a new lens, talking about difficult things, letting go of things you cannot change. Since it gradually reveals the events of the past, it's rather suspenseful, making you wonder what exactly happened to cause the James siblings to end up the way they did. Definitely an enjoyable read I'd recommend!
