Summary

The Hurlingford family have ruled the small town of Byron for generations. Wealthy, powerful and cruel, they get what they want, every time.
Missy Wright, a Hurlingford by birth, has been shunned by her family since marrying for love, not money. Now widowed, she lives quiet existence in genteel poverty. But then a stranger arrives in town; a divorcee from Sydney. She opens Missy's eyes to the possibility of a happy ending.

Charming tale

A delightful, magical "Cinderella" style tale. Very well narrated. Read this book many years ago and lent it to several friends/family. All of them enjoyed it very much, most of them unable to put it down until they had finished it.
Please note, the description is incorrect in relation to Missy Wright. She is a actually a spinster living with her mother and aunt rather than formally having been married as described.

Please fix the blurb!

This has always been one of my favourite books. The naration is ok, but not brilliant. Still, I can see myself coming back to this title time and again.

There is just one serious problem: can Amazon PLEASE fix the blurb? It seems to have been written by someone who never actually read or listened to the book.
