Home Julia Glass Three Junes. But she exasperates Paul. She is a heroine out of a Barbara Pym novel: bookish, dependable, magnanimously stubborn, and no doubt beneath it all profoundly disappointed. At an age when she might do well to tint her hair, she’s taken up pride in her plainness as if it were a charitable cause. She dresses and walks like a soldier, keeps her hair cropped blunt at the earlobes.

An astonishing first novel that traces the lives of a Scottish family over a decade as they confront the joys and longings, fulfillments and betrayals of love in all its guises. In June of 1989 Paul McLeod, a newspaper publisher and recent widower, travels to Greece, where he falls for a young American artist and reflects on the complicated truth about his marriage. . ..Six years later, again in June, Paul’s death draws his three grown sons and their families back to their ancestral home. Fenno, the eldest, a wry, introspective gay man, narrates the events of this unforeseen reunion. Far from his straitlaced expatriate life as a bookseller in Greenwich Village, Fenno is stunned by a series of revelations that threaten his carefully crafted defenses. . .. Four years farther on, in yet another June, a chance meeting on the Long Island shore brings Fenno together with Fern Olitsky, the artist who once captivated his father. Now pregnant, Fern must weigh her guilt about the past against her wishes for the future and decide what family means to her. In prose rich with compassion and wit,Three Junes paints a haunting portrait of love’s redemptive powers.From the Trade Paperback edition.
Reviews about Three Junes: A novel (7):
Tar
This was an enjoyable book to read. It focuses on the Macleod family from Scotland over 3 different time periods. Each time period is viewed through the eyes of a different family member: the first through the father,who has recently been widowed, the second through the oldest son, who is gay, and explores his relationships with his brothers, who are twins, and their families, the third through a young woman named Fern who has a close relationship with a former lover of the oldest son, Fenno. The family relationships are explored in a low-key way but I found them interesting enough to want to keep reading to see how they worked out. Fenno moves to New York City where he has to cope with the AIDS crisis and the impact it has on his personal relationships. Fenno makes choices to minimize his health risks but that add an element of sadness to his life. He returns to the family home in Scotland, periodically, where we see the sibling relationships evolve over time as well as the development of the relationships between the sisters-in-law and Fenno's role as an Uncle to his nieces. In spite of family conflicts we see family loyalty and caring revealed.

Ms. Glass writes with gifted prose, which borders on poetry. She is at times insightful about her characters.
However, I gave this novel 3 stars because the story is a mishmash. Told in three segments, the second is the most substantial, although it has a substantial number of similarities to THE BIG CHILL (copying or great minds think alike?). A number of innuendos are never resolved.
In the first and second segments, Ms. Glass shows us family members through one another's eyes, and their perceptions are frequently contrary to the current reality. A son depicted as lazy actually becomes an industrious, successful worker, and so on. Because of their failure to know their most intimate life companions, they end up living their lives at great distance.
The third segment is a mystery as to why it's there. The characters are vacuous, two are repulsive, and for the most part have little relevance to parts 1 and 2.
This was Ms. Glass's debut novel, and she showed great promise because of her prose.

Great story that kept be enthralled and curious to find out what was going to happen next. Touching and humorous, I fell in love with most of the characters, even the ones that I wasn't sure would even be likable. There were a few threads that I would have liked to see explore (hard to say what they are without giving out any spoilers). And I wasn't expecting there to be LGBT characters, or for those characters to be so well developed, so I was pleasantly surprised. Overall great read, highly recommend it!

I'm not really sure why this is titled thus, but it is a novel divided into three parts, the first two in June. But it is a novel about what love is between a man and a woman, a man and a man, a child and his parents, and a child and his siblings. The setting roams from London to Scotland to Paris and New York City. I found dialogue that made me smile and characters with whom I too fell in love. I recommend this novel to those interested not only in one kind of love, but in all kinds.

Complicated interweaving of family, friends, lovers creates a triangular plot. I liked the first "June" best--a mature widower choosing his place in the world after discovering unspoken betrayal and having the courage to live his life out in his own way. The second "June" is the longest giving space to the eldest son Fenno. He's certainly interesting but has such a difficult time finding himself, and the reader begins to lose patience with his blind forward movement through life--always reacting rather than acting--that it's difficult to get behind him as an advocate. Finally, the third "June" is confusing in its muddle of characters who have still not found their way confidently. I want Fern to be completely open to Stavros (she seems to be) but I'm not sure she's there; I want Fenno to accept his role as advocate for unwed mothers and his role as uncle to his own twin children . . . but I'm not sure if he can--really a huge step to take for anyone. But I do love him for trying!!
Families are so complicated . . . and this one is exceptional.

I don't usually write reviews about books, but felt I needed to after reading so many negative reviews. This book was well written. I have to admit that it was a slow starter for me, but I was hooked by the end of the first section. The Author created multi-dimensional characters who will frustrate you at times, but that means the writer has made you care about them. I personally am not a fan of loose ends. And this book has many. But even those serve a purpose here. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Ms Glass.
