    Good read

    I liked the characters, i could see each of them and what they were thinking and feeling. The role of secrets and hidden stories as well as the choices we make was well described.

    To solve her problems, a young naive Lillian decided to marry her charming and older suitor Charles Oberon. He's rich, he's handsome and owns a beautiful house in English countryside called Cloudesley. Lillian is struggling to raise her younger sister Helen, marrying Charles is the obvious solution to her situation and she is looking forward to being a stepmother to Charles's young son Albie. It doesn't take long for Lillian to realize she has made a big mistake, she's lonely, Albie is a nervous wreck, her husband is extremely difficult to live with and she's trapped in a unhappy marriage. One summer her husband decided to hire a young artist Jack to paint a room in the house and she thinks its another one of his crazy ideas! Soon a dangerous bond is formed between the lonely Lillian and the talented painter Jack. Maggie Oberon, Lillian's granddaughter receives a call and her dear Nan is ill, she quickly books a flight from Australia to England. When she arrives she discovers her sick aging grandmother is struggling to keep her crumbling home Cloudesley a float and it's in need of major repairs or the house will fall down. As Maggie tries to save her beloved Nan's home, she discovers the secrets from the past and also how it's affected her whole family. It's a heart breaking story of lost love, lies, tragedy and betrayal. I really enjoyed The Peacock Summer by Hannah Richell, it was a fabulous story, full of so many twists and turns that I didn't see coming. I gave the book five stars and I highly recommend reading it!
