    One thought on “Summer People”

    1. Now, I’m not a fan of romance in any form, not classic, not historic and definitely not paranormal. But I was pleasantly surprised, while there are romantic elements in Summer People, it’s not what I’d call a romance. No, not at all.To make this clearer -- I LOVED it!!Litherland’s writing evokes the lyric prose of Ray Bradbury, Patricia McKillip and John Bellair’s classic, The Face in the Frost. As I read Litherland’s words, I could literally see the café and smell the pastries, tea [...]

    2. This was the very first story by Mister Litherland that I read start to finish. Above all, I want to note that the prose is gorgeous. It sucked me so far into the world of the story, I lost the words on the page and merely saw things as they happened. The dark ambiance and the rich characterization had my heart pounding in time with the main character's as I wondered just what fate she might meet.

With mystery, suspense, witchcraft and the paranormal, this novella will bring on memories of the likes of Stoker and Shelley.

If you're taking a short journey somewhere and need something to keep you entertained, give this one a go.

    4. Normally I do not read or enjoy romance stories. However, this novella was a unique blend of more than just romance. It was a blend of supernatural and the lost art of the Gothic style. It is a short but enjoyable read.

    5. Basic plot: What happens when a young woman attracts the attention of the fey?The characters and plot are pretty straightforward in this story, but there are no things new under the sun. It's not terribly long, not really even novella length, but worth every moment of the reading. This story's value lies in the quality of the telling. Bethany is a young woman getting ready to join adulthood, Sean is a musician and Bethany's sort-of boyfriend, Rachel is Bethany's worldly aunt, and Danny is a hand [...]
