Publisher's Summary

Lucy's perfect world came crashing down around her when she heard those four dreaded words: "I don't love you". Followed by the slamming of the door.
Six months later, still in shock and denial, Lucy boarded a plane to go somewhere far away. She needed to be alone, with no memories of Paul. While in Egypt she met Sebastian Steel, whose origin was as potent as his magnetism; he was half English, half Italian, and a successful hotelier in Sharm el Sheikh and Cairo. Sebastian also had another secret--the one he could not tell Lucy. Their relationship started and developed, and they began to realize they had a lot in common and discovered that their lives were inextricably linked. The two of them were soon embarking on an exciting journey brought about by the enigmatic, unseen, but ever present Primrose, who had brought these two together. Finally, after seven years in Egypt, Sebastian returned home to England, back to the cottage he had shared with his mother, but he was returning with Lucy--the woman with whom he had fallen in love.

A beautiful love story

Half your work in choosing a great story to read or listen to is to pick something narrated by Melanie Fraser. Seriously, I've listened to a whole lot of different genres by her and each one has a fantastic story to tell and she narrates it professionally and makes it pure entertainment.
This one is the story about two people who are really saddened by something that has happened in their lives and they are both struggling to come to grips with this and carry on with their lives. Neither entertains the idea of finding someone to love and who will love them in return so when it happens, it is wonderful.
Have you guessed yet that I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful love story? Yes, I certainly did and am quite happy to recommend it.
I received a copy of the audiobook version from the narrator and this is my unbiased review.
