What more to say about this paragon of WWII-era nostalgia for simpler times? This confection of lazy summer reads? Sink into the joy and eventual disappointment of little Cordelia, the inimitable Julia, and the two young men who are each other's first loves.

I read this in the shoreside solarium of a 1929 lodge on the north shore of Lake Superior, relishing the language and reviving the imagery from the 1981 BBC miniseries, the 2008 movie, and the music video for Style Council's "Long Hot Summer".
