Coronation Summer

By Angela Thirkell

The Queen isn’t going to steal her thunder

It’s 1838, the summer of Queen Victoria’s coronation, and romance is in the air. When best friends Fanny and Emily arrive in London with Fanny’s despairing father in tow, they embrace the hustle and bustle of city life.

Almost at once Fanny’s heart is stolen by dashing rouge Mr Vavasour, despite his questionable reputation. But sensible and charming Mr Darnley is also determined to win her over, at any cost. Will she go with her head or with her heart?

Coronation Summer is a charming and brilliant adventure wrapped around a love story fit for any Jane Austen fan.

Angela Thirkell (1890 – 1961), began writing early in her life in Australia. Her first article appeared in the Cornhill Magazine in November 1921 and was the first of many articles and short stories, including work for Australian radio. On her return to England in 1929, this career continued with journalism, stories for children, and then novels. Her success as a novelist began with her second novel, High Rising (1933). She set many of her novels in Anthony Trollope’s Barsetshire, the fictional English county developed in her six acclaimed novels known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire.
