I  liked the title of this blog post: I won Summertime. Sounds good doesn’t it? But, nothing is as it seems……

Anyway you’ll gather from the photo of the book that I’ve won a copy. Yes, I just heard on twitter that I’m one of the lucky winners to have won a copy of Summertime by Vanessa Lafaye via Holly’s Giveaway rafflecopter.

Goodreads synopsis of Summertime:

Horrifying and beautiful, Summertime is a fictionalised account of one of the most devastating natural disasters in US history.

Florida Keys, 1935. Hurricane Season.

Tens of thousands of black and white men scarred by their experiences of war in Europe return home to find themselves abandoned to destitution by the US government.

The tiny, segregated community of Heron Key is suddenly overwhelmed by broken, disturbed men with new ideas about racial equality and nothing left to lose.

Tensions flare when a black veteran is accused of committing the most heinous crime of all against a white resident’s wife.

And not far off the strongest and most intense hurricane America has ever witnessed is gaining force.

For fans of The Help and To Kill a Mockingbird, this is the story of the greatest tragedy you’ve never heard of.

(Summertime is the title of the UK edition of Under a Dark Summer Sky)

Sounds good, looking forward to reading Summertime.
