The Swimming Pool Season, Paperback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

After the collapse of 'Aquazure', his swimming pool construction business, Larry and Miriam Kendall have exiled themselves to a sleepy French village.

When Miriam is summoned to her mother's deathbed in Oxford, Larry begins to formulate a dazzling new idea: the creation of the most beautiful, the most artistic swimming pool of all.

Around them, Rose Tremain weaves the intricate fabric of the lives of two communities: Miriam's mother, Leni, clever, beautiful and arrogant.

Polish Nadia, tortured by the passions of her sad and guilty past.

Gervaise the peasant woman - content with her boisterous German lover and confused husband. And the young tearaway Xavier, in love with the virginal Agnes.

An interesting cast of characters in a selection of interesting situations... but somehow the book never really gels into a whole. I feel as if it either needed more focus or more pages. Will try again with Rose Tremain though!
