Publisher's Summary

From beloved British author Rosamunde Pilcher comes a charming audiobook as warm and soothing as The End of Summer.

After years in the United States, Jane returns to the tranquil Scottish estate Elvie, where she spent a magical childhood. Memories of Elvie had always summoned the image of Sinclair, the rakish man Jane had once dreamed of marrying, but now that she is home, she finds Sinclair a different man. His charm has a purpose, and Jane can no longer trust him...or herself, in The End of Summer.

When you listen to a novel 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....

My Favorite Rosamunde Pilcher book

This is by far my favorite Rosamunde Pilcher book even though it never got the acclaim some of her others did. It's something about how the characters find themselves that just speaks to my heart. I first listened to it on audio cassette and wore the cassette out so was so glad to see audible offer it here. #Audible1

Very poor reader

This reader is hard to listen to, with a kind of hooty upper class voice. Wasn’t too bad in this book but was dreadful in Voices in Summer, where she gave one character who seemed like a perfectly nice person a shrill screeching voice. Thankfully I was able to return that one to Audible. I don’t think I could have stood 8hrs of it.
