“An enchanting story of love and war, and the years beyond.”—Penny Vincenzi, bestselling author of Wicked Pleasures

“A sumptuous, absorbing tale of love in time of war.”—Rachel Hore, Sunday Times of London bestselling author of A Place of Secrets

“Irresistible…sensuous prose, elegant settings and fascinating characters.”—Margaret Wurtele, author of The Golden Hour 

 “Well drawn characters combined with flawless writing make Kinghorn’s debut a triumph. This story kept me up for many nights in a row, and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Un-put-downable and relentlessly intriguing, this is a tale for the ages. I expect it’s not the last we’ll hear from this talented story teller; at least, I hope not!”—Dish Magazine

“A wonderful and heartbreaking love story…Highly recommended!”—One More Page

“An atmospheric and haunting read. It takes the reader from languorous summer days by the lake on a country estate to the horror of the trenches with equal aplomb…Judith Kinghorn skillfully navigates our journey through love and loss…This is the perfect balance of romance and grit by a great new writer. Don’t miss it!”—The Riddle of Writing

“Don’t miss The Last Summer by Judith Kinghorn. [An] epic and enthralling love story set against the backdrop of the Great War.”—F anny Blake, Woman and Home

“An enchanting read of Rachel Hore/Downton Abbey ilk, big storytelling stuff of social and political change spanning the First World War and beyond. It’s a glorious read, highly recommended.”—Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller

“The year is 1914 and love and war are about to transform privileged 16 year-old Clarissa’s charmed existence forever. This sumptuous romance is made for fans of Downton.”—The Lady Magazine
