On and off, all that hot French August, we made ourselves ill from eating the greengages... The faded elegance of Les Oeillets, with its bullet-scarred staircase and serene garden bounded by high walls; Eliot, the charming Englishman who became the children's guardian while their mother lay ill in hospital; sophisticated Mademoiselle Zizi, hotel patronne, and Eliot's devoted lover; 16 year old Joss, the oldest Grey girl, suddenly, achingly beautiful. And the Marne river flowing silent and slow beyond them all... They would merge together in a gold-green summer of discovery, until the fruit rotted on the trees and cold seeped into their bones... The Greengage Summer is Rumer Godden's tense, evocative portrait of love and deceit in the Champagne country of the Marne - which became a memorable film starring Kenneth More and Susannah York.… (mais)

The Greengage Summer por Rumer Godden (1958)

  1. 30
    I Capture the Castle por Dodie Smith (Lirmac)
    Lirmac: The Greengage Summer and I Capture the Castle are both exquisitly-crafted books narrated by girls on the brink of maturity. Both are engaging and timeless, and neither descends into the clichés of the 'coming of age' story.

Family of naive kids on their own in France, while their mother is in the hospital, encounter worldly people at their hotel. A coming of age story, and a coming of awareness story. The narrator is the younger sister and her voice is both that of herself looking back, and herself when young. How things end, and what happened to everyone, is left vague, which was tantalizing - I wanted the kid's dreams to come out right for them. Wonderful and disturbing. ( )

I picked this up because I've liked some of Rumer Godden's juveniles. This one's a little odd, though. Reminds me a bit of the ones by Bill and Vera Cleaver - written in a more adult style, with mature ideas, absolutely no didactism, almost no humor. My copy was from a thrift store and has no preface. I didn't find it uplifting or interesting or anything, really. ( )

"Ever afterwards in our family, we called it the greengage summer", May 10, 2016 This review is from: The Greengage Summer (Ki, 11 May 2016

This review is from: The Greengage Summer (Kindle Edition)
Evocative account of five English children on holiday in France sometime after WW1. When Mother has to go to hospital almost immediately, they are left in the 'care' of the hotel staff: snappy Madame Corbet, kitchen-hand Paul, Mlle Zizi - and the English beau of the latter, the charming Eliot. But as all the children grow utterly enamoured of Eliot, they are becoming aware that something is not quite right :
' "We love him", I said uncertainly. Can one love someone who is not good?'

A novel of growing up; the eldest daughter Joss discovers her power over men - but how that can be used against her by a rival - and the joy of being able to escape at last back to their safe life as children, albeit forever altered by their experiences...
Quite a compulsive read. ( )

My 5-star rating of this book, one of the golden books of my early adolescence, has more to do with how utterly enraptured I was by the novel one hazy Georgia summer than it does with literary merit, though it may have that as well. I simply was not a literary minded reader at 13. However, as a reader who as always appreciated a good story more than literary antics, I would say based on my over 30 year old memories of this book Ms. Godden is a hell of a storyteller whose unsentimental view of the young was engaging and liberating. It is a book that I have often thought of rereading, but am worried it would lose its glow. What A Tree Grows in Brooklyn seems to represent to many of my reading friends, The Greengage Summer was to me. ( )
