    Summer in February PDF EPUB ☆ Summer inePUB summer free, february pdf, Summer in kindle, Summer in February PDFEPUBThe movie is going to wreck me WHYAnyhow it was so interesting to learn about artists in that era and to be able to see a little of their closed world I really liked Gilbert but that's no surprise for he is portrayed by Dan Stevens in the movie However I really can't stand Alfred Munnings I know this is fiction so please someone tells me I shouldn't dislike him that much Because in the book I can't Moreover I thought it was clumsy to have the book start in 1949 with only two chapters at that time and the rest in the 1910s Of course the whole story was set around that time BUT it would have given me closure to end the book on a chapter set in 1949

    Summer in February PDF EPUB ☆ Summer inePUB summer free, february pdf, Summer in kindle, Summer in February PDFEPUBThis is the story of the artists colony at Lamorna Cornwall in the early 20th century While giving a general view of the artists the story centres on the love triangle between the great artist Alfred Munnings fellow artist Florence Carter Wood and Captain Gilbert Evans Having read Churchill KBO by the same author I have to say I really enjoy his style He makes historical figures come to life on the page That sounds cheesey I know but when reading his books you can hear Churchill blustering away or Munnings drunkenly uoting Poe as though you were in the room with them This is both engaging and disconcerting but makes for entertaining reading Would certainly recommend this
