The Lost Days of Summer




The bestselling Katie Flynn returns with another heartwarming saga.

In September 1939, fourteen-year-old Vinny Matthews leaves Liverpool to go and live with an elderly aunt on the Isle of Anglesey. At first Vinny hates everything about Wales and the farm, and she especially dislikes her Aunt Non, an embittered former teacher who is determined to further Vinny’s education.

Used to the busy life of Liverpool, Vinny wanders the island, spending long hours watching the comings and goings of a family who live on the cliffs. Life finally starts to improve for her as she begins a tentative friendship with one of the boys from the family.

For Aunt Non, Vinny’s presence brings back memories of her own girlhood and she begins to relive her former happiness in Liverpool, and the events which led up to her marriage to a Welsh farmer and her isolation in the wilds of Anglesey.

About the author

Katie Flynn

Katie Flynn is the author of 47 bestselling novels which have sold over 5 million copies. Her first book, A Liverpool Lass, was published in 1993. Katie Flynn was the pseudonym of the author Judy Turner, who was inspired to write the novels after hearing family recollections of life in Liverpool during the early twentieth century. Judy sadly passed away in January 2019 at the age of 82. Her daughter Holly worked as her assistant for many years and together they co-authored a number of Katie Flynn novels, including Christmas at Tuppenny Corner. The Katie Flynn legacy now lives on through Holly who writes new books, often based on ideas she discussed with her mother.

Holly lives in the north east of Wales with her husband Simon and their two children. When she’s not writing she enjoys walking her two lurchers, Sparky and Snoopy, in the surrounding countryside, and cooking forbidden foods such as pies, cakes, and puddings! She looks forward to sharing many more Katie Flynn stories with readers in the years to come.
