Publisher's Summary

"It is never too soon to discover Rosamunde Pilcher." (Good Housekeeping)

When you listen to an audiobook by Rosamunde Pilcher you enter a special world where emotions sing from the heart. A world that lovingly captures the ties that bind us to one another - the joys and sorrows, heartbreaks and misunderstandings, and glad, perfect moments when we are in true harmony. A world filled with evocative, engrossing, and above all, enjoyable portraits of people's lives and loves, tenderly laid open for us....

At 27, Virginia Keile had been through the most intense experiences life had to offer - a magical first love ending in heartbreak, a suitable marriage, motherhood, and widowhood. All she wanted now was to take her daughter and son to a seaside cottage in Cornwall and help them recover. But Virginia's true love was there, waiting, hoping, praying that this time she would be strong enough to seize happiness, in The Empty House.

I am sure they got the chapters confused

I am sure the chapters were out of order. The book made no sense at all. I finally started skipping over chapters that were obviously not where they should be What a shame. And IF it was in the right order, then it deserves NO stars!

Perfect for a summer afternoon

I loved this book. I lost myself in the lovely descriptions of Cornwall and the characters. The narrator did a great job of putting you right in the story. My only complaint is that it was TOO short. I wanted it to go on for a much longer time.

Was OK until the ending

I've read Pilcher before and really liked her, but this one is poor. Plot needs some work and there really isn't an ending. Too bad.
