"Powerful, emotional, beautiful, and historically fascinating, The Summer Country is a simply breathtaking saga. This is the kind of book you fall into, that absorbs you for the entire time you are reading it and that after, haunts you.... long after."--M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author of Tiffany Blues
"In this evocative family saga, The Summer Country, Willig sweeps the reader away to the heartbreak of colonial Barbados, where love across the color line is forbidden, and the repercussions of slavery's cruelty echoes through the generations. Bold and beautifully told, with unexpected twists, the puzzle pieces fit together with a satisfying click. Brava!"--Stephanie Dray, New York Times bestselling author of My Dear Hamilton
"Lauren Willig's The Summer Country is a sumptuous read, evoking M.M. Kaye's lush and sweeping tales of nineteenth century colonial life. I read The Summer Country slowly--doling out exquisite chapters one at a time--because there are too few books written today that harken back to that delicious way of storytelling that doesn't rush things just to keep up with modern trends. I would count this one as a new classic and encourage every reader who cares about quality writing to quickly add this one to their list of to-be-favorites."--Camille Di Maio, author of The Beautiful Strangers
"So steeped in Caribbean culture, my hands were sweating while turning the pages. Lauren Willig has ventured to story territory near and dear to my heart. The Summer Country is a daring, meticulously researched narrative of complicated love. A hot summer read for historical fiction fans!"--Sarah McCoy, New York Times bestselling author of Marilla of Green Gables
"I've been waiting for a book like this to come along: an epic family saga simmering with secrets, gorgeously told. Lauren Willig brings her exotic island setting to life with such exquisite sensory detail I lost myself completely. It's a story to be savored, a book you will keep on your shelf to read again and again. The Summer Country is a masterpiece."--Jamie Brenner, bestselling author of Drawing Home
“Tense, atmospheric, and gorgeously written, The Summer Country is a novel to savor!”
--Kate Quinn, author of The Huntress
