The Great Godden

This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer o the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, in a big, messy family, one teenager watches as brothers and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter the Goddens o irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there is a serpent in this paradise o and the consequences will be devastating.
