Up-and-coming fantasist Mary Robinette Kowal enchanted fans with her novels Shades of Milk and Honey and Glamour in Glass, which introduced Regency glamourists Jane and David Vincent. In Without a Summer, Jane and Vincent take a break from their international travels. But in a world where magic is real, nothing—even the domestic sphere—is quite what it seems. After a dramatic trip to Belgium, Jane and Vincent go to Long Parkmeade to spend time with Jane's family, but quickly turn restless. The spring is unseasonably cold, and no one wants to be outside. Mr. Ellsworth is concerned by the harvest, since a poor one may imperil Melody's dowry. And Melody has concerns of her own, given an inadequate selection of eligible bachelors locally. When Jane and Vincent receive a commission from a prominent London family, they take it, and bring Melody with them. They hope the change of scenery will do her good and her marriage prospects—and mood—will be brighter in London. Talk here frequently turns to increased unemployment of coldmongers and riots in nearby villages by Luddites concerned that their way of life is becoming untenable. With each passing day, it's more difficult to avoid getting embroiled in the intrigue, which does not really help Melody's chances for romance. It doesn't take long for Jane to Vincent realize that in addition to arranging a wedding, they must take on one small task: solving a crisis of national proportions.

At once startling and gently loving, Truth sprays from the author's soul via these poems as though from an immanent spiritual geyser. Nature and science resolve one another in peace, and cosmic mysteries such as reincarnation, life after death, and the path to the Creator find solutions, not as second hand recollections but as actual experiences. Never again need the reader wonder if the Divine is deaf and blind to mortal suffering and the plight of the human condition. Rest assured in this poetry that one of the many hands of God is reaching out to you, beckoning to you to recall your infinite nature as Spirit: "The sea, the metaphor of the Formless Force, the hint dropper of entropy’s death to come, carried with the child upon the land, wielded as the sword of light, witnesses the Observer on the cliff the emergence of intropy, lifelong friend of Life, heralding victory over matter—the anti-attenuation mechanism, the negation of heat loss, and savior of the children of the earth, born of the sea—where all space present in the salt sea drop; all time contained in the moment—intropy, the great winding up of the universe. Born this day upon the crystal white sands, serenaded kindly goodbye, and sent tottering away in tearful happiness by the lapping, waving, watery Father; all as witnessed and recorded, according to plan, by the Observer."
