’ Nelly Spencer, an English woman working for an animal welfare organisation in France, is sent to investigate an isolated farm in the northern region of Normandy. What she discovers, however, is something that will change her life forever: a dusty Allied Army jeep left from the D-Day invasion. An elderly farm lady named Louise claims it belonged to her husband Michel. As she gradually recounts the story of the jeep and the romance between an injured Canadian soldier and his nurse, Nelly is drawn into the sombre memory of war-torn France. At the same time confronted with the uncertainty surrounding her own childhood. ‘That Summer in Normandy’ is a poignant journey between historical reality and a romantic novel, woven back and forth like a cross-stitch tapestry against a backcloth of wartime heroism. From the stricken Landing Beaches to ebullient D-Day celebrations, the reader follows Nelly, in her quest of identity, through three interweaving stories of love and betrayal soaked in evocative details of life in rural Normandy. Will old Louise's revelations provide Nelly with the answers she’s looking for?
