    Overall, I am immeasurably impressed with Summerset, by Karen Mason Summerset was Karen Mason s first title, with the novel, Mad About the Boy and the novella, Mrs Osbourne Regrets following it Karen Mason resides in South London.Shortly after World War II, Lou O Connell moves to the small Sussex village of Summerset with her father, Mitch, attempting to begin a new life and start again As the young daughter of the local publican, Lou finds herself blossoming into the young woman she is dest Overall, I am immeasurably impressed with Summerset, by Karen Mason Summerset was Karen Mason s first title, with the novel, Mad About the Boy and the novella, Mrs Osbourne Regrets following it Karen Mason resides in South London.Shortly after World War II, Lou O Connell moves to the small Sussex village of Summerset with her father, Mitch, attempting to begin a new life and start again As the young daughter of the local publican, Lou finds herself blossoming into the young woman she is destined to become, admired and pursued by all the young men of Summerset Her heart, however, belongs only to Andrew McDonald, the dedicated husband to Briggy Sheridan The Sheridan s, hated and feared equally among the town, not only own the pub, but most of Summerset, as well Kept secret from everyone around them, Lou and Andrew s passion and forbidden love spans decades As Lou becomes a famous author, marries, and bears children of her own, Andrew stays in a loveless marriage out of duty But as a shocking discovery into Lou s true heritage, and the secret they deemed hidden surfaces, Lou becomes determined to seek revenge on all the wrongs and seeks to claim what is rightfully hers Summerset is a tale of forbidden love and a quest for revenge, against a backdrop of social change.The book was littered with grammatical errors in the way of commas and misspellings, to which the author is aware, and is nothing that a good editor can t fix I m not real keen on the cover, and I would have liked to see a brief author biography on the back cover, too.Karen Mason s writing style is very unique I found it to be very succinct and to the point, without the unnecessary indemnities, and very eloquently translated in this story She has a very dry, witty, and contagious sense of humor, which popped up at appropriate intervals throughout the book It had great character development and setting description, along with a brilliant understanding for the social background of time in which it was written I didn t find any dead spots, nor did I lose interest anywhere in the story I find I must point out a line in this book, to which I found was so overwhelmingly powerful at the end of the story, I won t explain, you ll get it when you read it You can do it You come from a long line of actors Bravo Beginning in October of 1946, and ending in December of 2006, this third person point of view reads like a memoir with a phenomenal plot Packed with the innocence of youth, the elation of first love, bitterness of heartbreak, the power but not happiness money brings, family secrets, and the glory of finally getting what you want Summerset, by Karen Mason, is a powerful and engaging story, guaranteed to trap your attention and your heart Kelly Moran,Author and Reviewer

    I was interested in this book, among Karen Mason s works, because of its setting in post World War II England, and the author evokes the sense of a village trying vainly to remain sleepy, despite the onset of irreversible change, in the upheaval she documents in its inhabitants personal lives.I enjoyed reading Summerset Karen Mason s writing style is quite heavy on focalised narration This could be hard going to read if she were not so good at getting into the heads of her characters The s I was interested in this book, among Karen Mason s works, because of its setting in post World War II England, and the author evokes the sense of a village trying vainly to remain sleepy, despite the onset of irreversible change, in the upheaval she documents in its inhabitants personal lives.I enjoyed reading Summerset Karen Mason s writing style is quite heavy on focalised narration This could be hard going to read if she were not so good at getting into the heads of her characters The sincerity and rawness of her writing is what makes it compelling reading.If I found difficulty in Summerset , it was in the pitching of the novel At the outset it appears to be a nice story, an easy romance to lose yourself in However, as the plot unravels there are actually very dark aspects to it in particular, the conflict in Andrew and Briggy s marriage and the necessary marginalisation of Briggy, in order for a relationship to develop between Andrew and Lou And because of this, Andrew is a flawed hero I also found the development of the friendship between Lou, Briggy and Andrew to be, at times, tenuous, Lou s status wavering between that of child and adult However, once I got beyond expectations I might have had that the book would conform to generic norms of romance, I just enjoyed the intensely emotional nature of the plot And Mason s characterisation, whilst somewhat conflicting in respect of Andrew s emotional state and Lou s maturity, is strong, the very paradoxes she creates in her characters engaging the reader.The novel does, as the cover blurb suggests, span several decades and later in the book the scene jumps from one time setting to another quite rapidly This is fine, however, as the characters are so well established by this point.I must echo the comments of other reviewers in saying that this book deserves closer attention to editing to do the story justice That said, if you enjoy intense, involved romances, Summerset as it stands may well be a book for you
