Synopsis: Set against the desolate autumn beauty of Cape Cod, The Last September is a riveting emotional puzzle that takes readers inside the psyche of a woman facing the meaning of love and loyalty.

Brett has been in love with Charlie ever since he took her skiing on a lovely Colorado night fourteen years ago. And now, living in a seaside cottage on Cape Cod with their young daughter, it looks as if they have settled into the life they desired. However, Brett and Charlie’s marriage has been tenuous for quite some time. When Charlie’s unstable younger brother plans to move in with them, the tension simmering under the surface of their marriage boils over.

But what happened to Charlie next was unfathomable. Charlie was the golden boy so charismatic that he charmed everyone who crossed his path; who never shied away from a challenge; who saw life as one big adventure; who could always rescue his troubled brother, no matter how unpredictable the situation.

So who is to blame for the tragic turn of events? And why does Brett feel responsible?

 

From the Back Cover: “The type of novel writers admire and readers long for.”*

“Convincing and suspenseful . . . precise and poignant in its depiction of human nature in dire distress.” —Sheila Kohler, author of Dreaming for Freud

“That rare coming of age novel that deals with adults, who actually do come of age in the most difficult ways. I was hooked by the first paragraph, which somehow contains all the beautiful, luminous grief of the whole story, and I truly did not want to let it go in the end.” —Brad Watson, author of Aliens in the Prime of Their Lives

The Last September is a wonderful, glowing book populated  by characters that become a part of your life long after the last page has been turned.”—*Jason Mott, author of The Returned

“An emotionally intense study of how a transcendent love becomes a fraying marriage . . . [with] characters who are irresistibly attractive, flawed, and dangerous . . . A fine literary whodunit from an accomplished storyteller.” —Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Gossip of the Starlings

“De Gramont’s debut novel is the kind of smart and riveting read the fans of a certain kind of campus drama—think Donna Tartt’s The Secret History—will devour.” —People

“A transfixing debut.” —The Washington Post

“Stunning . . . I inhaled this novel in one breath.” —Jacquelyn Mitchard
