The enchanting true story of three generations of women, and the tiny Norwegian island that became part of their lives
Tilly Culme-Seymour studied English at Trinity College, Dublin. She is now based in London, where she writes on food and travel. This is her first book.
Utterly captivating ... Reminiscent at times of Roald Dahl's Boy. At moments she touches genius * Donald Sturrock * Perfectly evokes the calm and content that comes with a modest, self-sufficient way of life ... Charming * Daily Telegraph * A paean to simple pleasures * Harper's Bazaar * Somehow, it also captures all of our timeless childhood summers, all of our treasuring of family traditions, all of our relationships with siblings and cousins, parents and grandparents, all of our careful passing on of pastimes from one generation to the next, all of our love of nature and of homemade food, all of our hopes and dreams about continuity. So captivating are Miss Culme-Seymour's vignettes and descriptions that I was totally drawn in and, like her, came to dread the end-of-August departures. An instinctively seductive and sensual writer, she hooks you with all the senses * Country Life * A prose poem to a private idyll * The Times * A lovely blend of biography, topography and gastronomy ... She has created a lip-smacking lexicon of dishes inviting elongated vowels and dead-headed consonants ... And a cardiac-arrest threatening approach to ingredients ... Sensual foodie prose * Independent on Sunday *
