Yanto\'s Summer


    For fans of Cider With Rosie by Laurie Lee. A spectacular evocation of a bygone age, Yanto's Summer is set in post-World War II Gloucestershire. Yanto, invalided out of the Army towards the end of the war, enjoys civilian life, but he misses the thrill and risk of war. He has to readjust to a sedate life of dock work, fishing, and 'going steady' - but things don't stay that way for long, especially not when an old flame of Yanto's returns to the small town of Berkeley! And there are dark secrets and old feuds at play even in the sleepiest of villages ...Yanto's Summer is a warm, well-told story of life in the English countryside during the middle of the twentieth century - a time of great upheaval in an age-old community.
