Golden Summer (1972)
Hodder and Stoughton (1972)

Love and mystery resolved in the enchanting setting of the West of Ireland.

Jean had loved Adrian with the happy simplicity of a child. Four weeks before their wedding day, he was lost to her, and in circumstances which she did not understand. If the answers lay anywhere, they lay in the West of Ireland, in that enchanting country to which he had been so devoted. She went there expecting nothing beyond finding out what had really happened; only then, she felt, could she accept the situation.

By the end of the summer, a new future opened up. None of it had been easy, but now she could put the past behind her. Somehow, she had reached the point where she could truthfully say she would not have changed places with anyone in the world.

Golden Summer (1977)
Coronet (1977)

When Jean Lansford heard that her fiancé had been killed in a car accident, she was stunned by the news. With her parents dead, Adrian had filled an empty space in her heart and she had loved him with the happy simplicity of a child. She also found the circumstances of Adrian’s death difficult to understand . . .

When Jean decided to go to Ireland, to the scene of the accident, to discover the truth for herself, she was surprised when her trustee, Darrel Brynton, insisted on accompanying her. Surprised – and disturbed. For Darrel, exasperating and laconic as he was, was physically more attractive to her than any man had been before – even Adrian himself.

But Jean was to find that she still had a great deal of growing up to do – as the golden summer months slowly turned to dark December . . .
