Summary
Meet the Skinner siblings: fierce Renée, dreamy Caroline, golden boy Joe and watchful Fiona. Their story begins with the sudden death of their father and a period known as The Pause; one free and feral summer spent at the neighbourhood pond, which will bind the Skinners tightly together, and irrevocably shape the course of their lives. Two decades later, the adult siblings have scattered. But tragedy will draw them back together once again. They'll be forced to question the life choices they've made and ask what, exactly, they will do for love. Beautifully told with warmth and heartbreak, The Last Romantics is a compelling story about family, the ways in which four siblings grow together and apart, the thousand little ways in which they can betray one another - but also how they'll always find home
Summary
Renowned poet Fiona Skinner tells the inspiration behind her iconic work, a decades long story of her family after her father dies suddenly.
