It’s Summer at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon. A young assistant director, Thomas, is desperately in love with the lead actress, Lucy, in the play The Tempest.

Their lives become entwined with the Head Director, Harry, an exiled South African with a haunted past.  These are ingredients for a perfect tortured love story, but with Craig’s poignant writing and seamless story-telling, you will be taken on a journey to that ill-fated summer in Stratford-upon-Avon.

This book is something new and wonderfully written, but begins to fall short of something brilliant. I would advise read it for the writing but other than that…

I give it 3 out of 10.
