THE SUMMER OF OUR DISCONTENT
Reviewed in the United States on September 29, 2013
Change is in the air, and spring is giving way to The Summer of Our Discontent.
Faith Leblanc is looking for that special someone, but her tactics have branded her somewhat of a womanizer.
A few doors down, Rachel Chauvin is looking for the same, but her conservative style hasn’t yielded any keepers, either.
Neither woman is willing to consider the other as a prospective partner, mostly because they’ve hated each other for nearly four decades.

"This is one of the best books I have ever read, and I've read a lot!
As usual, Robin Alexander has written a perfect story about two women approaching middle age and finding love where they least expect it.
There isn't the usual collection of crazy but loveable old folks this time, but there are a couple of adorable little girls who make up for that superbly. Their description of how babies are made was utterly priceless.
The two lead characters are superbly described, and their relative backstories are explained really well, making their thoughts and actions totally understandable.
As usual, reading this has left me desperate to read the next Robin Alexander book."
