The Moon at Midnight book. Charlotte Bingham is a very prolific writer of both novels and television dramas. I first read one of her books ten years ago and this is only the sixth title of hers since then.

The Moon at Midnight book. It is late autumn, 1962, and darkness is falling, but not just. The Moon at Midnight is a very easy read; the only concentration required is to remember the relationships.

It is late autumn, 1962, and darkness is falling, but not just over the idyllic fishing port of Bexham  . No commitment, cancel anytime.

The Honourable Charlotte Mary Thérèse Bingham was born on 29 June 1942 in Haywards Heath, Sussex. They later wrote an accompanying book called Rose's Story. The Moon at Midnight (2003). Daughters of Eden (2004). Her father, John Bingham, 7th Baron Clanmorris, wrote detective stories and was a secret member of MI5. Her mother, Madeleine Bingham, née Madeleine Mary Ebel, was a playwright. They also wrote the episodes of Take Three Girls featuring Victoria (Liza Goddard). In the 1970s, Brady and Bingham wrote episodes for the TV series Play for Today, Three Comedies of Marriage, Yes, Honestly and Robin's Nest.

Wells when he was only seventeen - and Charlotte wrote her autobiography, CORONET AMONG THE WEEDS, at the age of nineteen. Since then, she has written comedy and drama series, films and plays for both England and America with her husband, the actor and playwright Terence Brady.

This is the third book in a trilogy and, to my mind, Charlotte Bingham should have stopped at two books. This one really dragged and too many characters fell flat. I always loved Rusty in the first two books, but the parts about her children in this one tended to be boring. And the attempt at writing with southern accents and American slang was cringe inducing.

The trilogy centers around four woman. Meggie Gore-Stewart who died in the second book. Rusty Sykes, mentioned above, a character I found intriguing and constantly wishing to see her more fully developed. A missed opportunity, Ms. Bingham. Mattie Tate who really ended up as an afterthought. And Judy Melton, my favorite and the most nuanced and fully developed of the four. Maybe that's why she was my favorite.

And poor Judy deserved better. I don't think she was ever truly happy with Walter, even at the end. I wanted so bad for her to have an affair with Waldo. Or even throw caution to the wind and leave her husband for him, reputation be damned. Of course, Judy being Judy, I knew she wouldn't dare. But, dang it, she deserved a little happiness. Not to mention, Waldo came off as a little too perfect (which was annoying at times) and it would have been nice to see him make a misstep.

I loved Loopy and was glad she developed into an important character as the story went on. She eventually ended up eclipsing Mattie and Rusty. And Lionel's character was so interesting. I could not stand him at first, but grew fond of him once he realized his mistakes, accepting Mattie and Max and never judging. Not so the Tate men. Couldn't stand any of them. I had hopes for John after the second book, but he ended up as shallow as his father and brother.

The main reasons this series ran out of steam for me. First, the heavy reliance on the cold war as a plotline fell flat. Second, of the five offspring of the main characters who featured in this third book, only one, Jenny, was more than borderline interesting. Tam might have been easier to stomach if not for all the hokey doings in Texas. Kim was okay. And I never really connected with Max and Flavia. And the worst part. After everyone worked so hard to save the village of Bexham for future generations, not one of the main characters' children (including the ones barely mentioned in the book) chose to live in the village. Rather disappointing. What was the point? Oh, and the parts detailing bridge hands for pages and pages nearly put me to sleep!

One part in the last chapter did cause me to tear up a little. It was very bittersweet when Waldo gave Judy the portrait of Meggie. That felt so right.

To conclude, I have mixed feelings about the author. Sometimes her writing is good, other times corny or overdramatic. I did like most of the original characters. However, some needed to be more fully developed (Mattie and Rusty). I would recommend this series, but the last book will be a chore to get through.
