Without A Summer Paperback
Part of the The Glamourist Histories series
Summer, 1816. Glamourists Jane and David Vincent return home to an unseasonably cold Long Parkmeade.
Cooped up inside with Jane's fretful sister and father, they soon become restless, so when they receive a commission from a prominent family in London, they decide to go - taking Melody with them.
Perhaps the change of scenery will brighten their moods (and Melody's marriage prospects).
The capital is fizzing with talk of crop failures and unemployment riots in the north.
Finding it difficult to avoid getting embroiled in the intrigue, it's not long before Jane and David realise they must use their magic to solve a crisis of international proportions ...and get Melody to the church on time.

Review by wyvernfriend
I am loving this series. The concept of magic as being almost a small thing, almost negligible by most people, regarded as a woman's craft but David Vincent is making a name for himself in the craft along with his wife Jane. They bring Melody to London with them during a long cold summer and they have to face racism and politics that include David's family politics that will put their lives at risk.The details are great and the characters really read well, this is a series I'm seriously considering buying for my own collection.
