The Myth of Perpetual Summer Reviews

  • Basic B's Guide

    “My parents loved so wildly, they destroyed each other. My father was a tormented man. My brother betrayed my trust. My mother is a self-centered hypocrite. My grandmother has secrets so dark she’d lose me than reveal them. I’m afraid if I love you, you’ll destroy me.”

    A coming-of-age tale reminiscent of Glass Castle. Set in Mississippi during the 60s, this book deals with mental illness, the civil rights movement, and dysfunctional family life.

    I won this book through a BookishFirst giveaway. Thank you!

    Sadly, I'm going to sit this one aside for now and maybe try again at another time. I don't read a lot of historical fiction and when I do they are usually in the gothic haunted mansion variety. The pacing of this one is much slower than what I'm used to and I keep finding myself distracted every time I pick this up.

    I will say the writing itself is exceptional. It's no wonder that Susan Crandall has achieved the success that she has.

    **Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I received no additional compensation**

    I had my doubts about 20% in on this one and almost quit. The writing is thick with Southern expressions and they almost got to be too much. I also couldn't figure out where THE storyline was in the jumble of storylines. But, in the end, I'm glad I stuck with it! This family's dysfunction is not easy to figure out at first.

    5 southern family secret stars to The Myth of Perpetual Summer, my first favorite read of summer! 🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺

    Set in Mississippi in the 1960s and 70s, Tallulah James’ story is memorable and haunting. Her parents have a tumultuous relationship sparked by a self-absorbed, yet bleeding-heart when it comes to social causes outside her own home, mother, and a father with an at times debilitating mental illness.

    The town is always talking about the high profile Jameses, including lurid family secrets past an

    The half-page prologue lured me right into this story! It’s 1972 and an adult Tallulah has returned home to small town Mississippi without the open door of the family plantation- it’s ruined - or the welcoming arms of family - they’re estranged and her youngest brother’s on trial for murder.

    Just when she settles in, chapters take us back to her childhood so we understand why she ever left. This is not a well-to-do Southern family. They’re dysfunctional and struggling to make a living with their

    4.5 *s. I love a good Southern dysfunctional family tale and this novel fits. After fleeing a difficult childhood to live her adult life in California, Tallulah returns to the south when her brother has been put in jail. Tallulah is forced to address her past and finds more secrets revealed. This is a well written story with great characters.

    Thanks to Gallery Books for a free copy.

    3.5 I picked this up because it was by a local author and I was curious. I'm glad I did. It was a novel steeped in summer and family. Family secrets tear apart Tallulah's family and she runs off to find a new life after a family tragedy. She avoids contact with everyone from her hometown, including all her family, until her younger brother is arrested for murder. The author moves us comfortably back and forth between the past and the present, almost as if we are remembering the past as Tallulah ...more
