I think it was through reading a blog post that I saw reference to this book and there was something about the blurb that appealed to me.  Unfortunately, I’m old enough to remember the summer in question.  In fact, the weather throughout the whole year was usual – I suffered with hayfever in February.   Sometimes, we’re even nostalgic for the discomforts of youth…
