Summer of '76

(2013)
A novel by

 
It's the start of one of the hottest summers on record with weeks without rain; the summer of Abba, T-Rex and David Bowie; of the Notting Hill riots and when Big Ben stopped dead.

Luke Wolff is about to turn 18 and is set to enjoy his last summer at home on the Isle of Wight before leaving for college. His job at a holiday camp promises new friendships and romance. But with the heat and open windows, secrets become harder to hide and his parents' seemingly ordered lives become unstuck and the community is gripped by scandal.

Isabel Ashdown was born in London in 1970 and grew up on the south coast of England. She is the author of three novels, Glasshopper (London Evening Standard and Observer Best Books of the Year) Hurry Up and Wait (Amazon Top Customer Reads 2011), and Summer of '76 (out now). She is also winner of the Mail on Sunday Novel Competition 2008, judged by Fay Weldon and the late Sir John Mortimer. Isabel now lives in West Sussex with her husband, a carpenter, their two children and a border terrier called Charlie.
