Description

Previously published as The Woman from Paris

“Superb storyteller” (Plum Sykes) Santa Montefiore’s sweeping and sophisticated international bestseller Summer House is “a feel good story, full of exuberance and passion and threaded with hope…an exceptional find” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer).

When Lord Frampton dies in a skiing accident, a beautiful young woman named Phaedra appears at his funeral—claiming to be the Lord’s illegitimate daughter. In his will, Lord Frampton has left the priceless Frampton suite of sapphires to this interloper, confirming her claim and outraging his three adult sons and widow. Eventually, however, Phaedra’s sweet nature thaws the frosty relationships. She becomes the daughter that Antoinette Frampton never had and a wise and compassionate granddaughter to the formidable Dowager Lady Frampton. But an attraction grows between Phaedra and the eldest son, David. It seems an impossible love—blocked by their blood connection and by the fury of one family member who is determined to expose Phaedra as a fraud.

Filled with the luscious scenery and enchanting characters her fans adore, Santa Montefiore’s Summer House is an unforgettable story about family, forgiveness, and the power of love.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 29, 2012 – Montefiore once again records the melodrama of her fictional peers in her seventh novel (after The Mermaid Garden). After the patriarch of the Frampton family dies in a tragic skiing accident, his wife and children come together to cope with the loss, only to find an unexpected guest has joined their ranks namely, George s heretofore unknown illegitimate daughter, Phaedra Chancellor. Though she is strangely reluctant to accept her share of the inheritance and all of the Frampton sapphires, her adoptive relatives quickly embrace her, especially her brother David. But as the Framptons get used to their restructured family tree, Phaedra struggles under the burden of an even greater secret of her own one that could tear at the family once again. While most readers will likely see the surprise coming from a long way off, Montefiore is an able chronicler of family dynamics, making for a skillfully crafted, if ultimately forgettable, tale of high society drama.
