Lovely story nicely read

A really nice story. A bit predictable but what chick lit isn't? Likeable characters and very well read by Emma Gregory who has a lovely soothing voice. Recommended.

A pleasant holiday read

A pleasant holiday read, read well. I did cry at a couple of points. I found Saskia mildly annoying. The past & present stories were handled well, paced so that both progressed & neither felt neglected.

A Joy to Read/Listen!

Beautifully written, structured, and paced. Unforgettable characters. Brilliantly performed by both narrators. This is sincerely one of my favorite books in the genre.
