In the summer of 1952, two strangers arrive in the pretty seaside hamlet of West Bay. Tom Arnold lost his wife and children when the car he was driving was run off a seaside road above the cliffs.

In this delightful place, they both hope to rebuild their lives, yet someone is trying to wreck their search for happiness.

From Predictable to Pageturning

Would you listen to The Beachcomber again? Why?

I would not listen twice as I never do ..

Who was your favorite character and why?

All the characters were well played... I guess Jasper would be the most outstanding one :-)

What about Carole Boyd’s performance did you like?

The narration was splendid. C.B read the different voices and dialects wonderfully.

Any additional comments?

I think the book started out in a very predictable manner but as the chapters wore on it became compelling and hard to put down..
