Six Images of Summer

Six Images of Summer


The enigmatic Summer Beethoven affects all those who come into contact with her; each character of the story becoming influenced by their own individual image of this unique and  tantalising female. 

Based on a real person, long dead, the rich and wonderful, if slightly obsolete, vocabulary of the English language used within this novel is intended to reflect the singular heroine of the story; for the language should not die, and nor should the memory of such an extraordinary character.
