內容簡介


南法的陽光,埋藏的秘密,結怨的婆媳,以及阿爾及利亞的內戰,交織成這部令人心碎的禁忌故事。

「充滿南法陽光、香氣與美味的美麗之書,豐富的劇情讓人捨不得放下,對巴黎與普羅旺斯的描述也讓人垂涎三尺,足夠吸引你去趕搭”歐洲之星”。」
--《每日郵報》(Daily Mail)

「當你沉浸在秘密與心碎的故事中,這充滿氣氛的閱讀將促使你直往南法。」
--《美麗佳人》(Marie Claire)

青梅竹馬的Jane 與Luc過了好多年幸福的婚姻生活,Jane生性害羞,專職翻譯;Luc是個熱情的紀錄片導演,他的家族在阿爾及利亞獨立戰爭爆發時,倉皇逃回法國,之後落腳南法經營酒莊。每年葡萄收成時,就是Cambon家族大肆慶祝的時節。但是今年卻因為一場意外毀了作物,導致整個莊園面臨了毀滅。Luc的母親Clarisse Cambon知道,最應該怪罪的就是她的媳婦Jane。

婆媳兩人結怨已非一朝一夕,而這全來自Luc刻意隱藏的秘密,難道Luc不像他外表看上去的那麼神聖?當悲劇來臨,Jane必須對受創的葡萄園負起責任,而當她發現進一步的證據時,Luc或許不是她20年前愛上的那個男人,而唯一知道這個真相的,只有她的死對頭Clarisse了…。

'Secrets, tragedy, hidden pasts and family secrets all set in glorious Provence - I loved this' Santa Montefiore

Secrets ripen and fester over a long sweltering summer in France . . .

The annual grape harvest at the Cambon family's magnificent vineyard is always a cause for celebration. But not this year. When an accident destroys the crop, leaving the estate facing ruin, Clarisse Cambon knows exactly who to blame - her daughter-in-law Jane.

It's just the latest incident in a decades-long feud whose origin both women have concealed from Luc, who struggles to keep his wife and mother on speaking terms. But is Luc the saint he appears to be? When tragedy strikes, Jane is thrown into doubt. What secrets has her husband been keeping?

Forced to take charge of the ailing vineyard, Jane uncovers further proof that Luc may not be the man she fell in love with twenty years ago. And, worse still, she knows that her old enemy Clarisse is the only one who knows the truth . . .

For fans of Santa Montefiore and Victoria Hislop, The Forgotten Summer is an atmospheric tale of secrets, forbidden passion and heartbreak.
