My Summer with George" is an ironic title for Marilyn French's latest novel in which Hermione Beldame does not spend the summer with George other than in her mind and conversation. George does come in and out of Hermione's life in New York City, but the novel is more about romantic love and its effects on sophisticated women than it is about actual romance. Hermione herself, a successful, spirited, sixty-something romance novelist, and the women in her life are as much or more interesting than George. They thoroughly discuss the role of romance in their lives. So she’s stunned when she meets George Johnson at a party and the Louisville journalist sweeps her off her feet.
