Product description

Review

As with Cheryl Cooper's first book, Come Looking for Me, I couldn't put down her sequel, Second Summer of War. The continuing adventures and intrigues of her captivating characters kept me turning those pages, always wondering what was going to happen next. Rich with attention and historical detail, I could hear the unearthly sounds of the sea and feel the decks rocking beneath my feet. Another whirlwind of a read!

(Nancy Beal, Owner, Muskoka Creative Communications)

Second Summer of War is the riveting sequel to Cooper's first novel, Come Looking for Me, and the second book in the Seasons of War series. Cooper does a masterful job of weaving the details of the first novel into the second...it is meticulously researched and extremely well written. The superbly developed characters draw the reader in to such a degree that while they may be loathe to put it down, they also don't want the book to end. (Muskoka Magazine)

Like its predecessor, Come Looking For Me, this story draws you in from the opening pages. We feel like we’ve only left Emily and her companions for a brief moment. The transition is seamless. Cheryl Cooper’s extensive research really shines through in the definition she gives each of her characters and the world they inhabit…[Cooper’s] attention to detail and her mastery of her craft painted vivid living images of each character, their struggles, passions and sorrows.

(Due North Journal Blog)

"...strong supporting characters will keep you rooting for the sailors as they battle extreme conditions on the sea...[and] the naval backdrop makes all the difference. The comprehensive descriptions of the ships, guns, sailors, and medicine of the time make you feel like you are standing on a frigate with the characters." (Historical Novel Society)

Teens who aren’t daunted by longer novels and those who like to get lost in the past will enjoy the adventure, romance, intrigue and excitement of this richly detailed story about events in Britain and at sea during the War of 1812, when the Age of Sail was at its zenith. (Muskokan 2014-09-26)
