Product description


"Carole Giangrande's Midsummer sets sail in search of distant turning points. She holds the heart of her story gently, and she steers us gracefully through time, and memory. The elegance of her language casts long shadows. She moves us as she writes from the center of longing and wonder." - Karen Lee Lewis, author of What I Would Not Unravel"Midsummer is emotionally focused and charged with the power of archetype, its undercurrent of passion perfectly controlled. Carole Giangrande has mastered the novella form." - Eva Tihanyi, author of Flying Underwater: Poems New and Selected "The language of the novella is absolutely luxurious, a blend of English and Italian that rolls of the tongue like honey wrapped around a Vivaldi symphony. Lyrical, languid, brilliant, Midsummer is a fast read for a slow and sultry afternoon. I highly recommend it."- Biblioteca "Like a painting that comes to life, Midsummer by Carole Giangrande is like the longest-day of summer in families when tragedy saddens everyone in different ways, regrets threaten to bring members to their knees, and forgiveness is a shining beacon that can save them all."- Savvy Verse and Wit"The ties of family, the place we hold in history, the issues of our personal culpability are the key issues in Carole Giangrande's novella. It is a seemingly simple book, which examines complex emotions. It is an especially perfect read for summer."- Dolce Bellezza"Lovely. This is the first word that comes to mind about this book. It's rather short, but packs a intensely emotional wallop. The stories weave together in such a unique way that doesn't quite show it's true meaning until the very end. This is truly a story that must be savored slowly, and enjoyed thoroughly."- Book Lady, Must Read Faster"There are so many things to appreciate in Midsummer. Giangrande's style is truly poetic. She gives this story an engaging other-worldly feel that borders on the magical. She is also able to really focus in on the story--which is surprisingly complex for so short a book--and every word is essential."- West Metro Mommy Reads
