Summary

When Kendra first visits her ailing grandmother, Ella has only one request: that Kendra write her story down, before she forgets…
In 1937, seventeen-year-old Ella’s life changes forever when she is sent to spend the summer on the beautiful Île de Ré and meets the charismatic, creative Christophe. They spend the summer together, exploring the island’s sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, and, for the first time in her life, Ella feels truly free.
But the outbreak of war casts everything in a new light. Ella is forced to return to Scotland, where she volunteers for the war effort alongside the dashing Angus. In this new world, Ella feels herself drifting further and further from who she was on the Île de Ré. Can she ever find her way back? And does she want to?
From the windswept Île de Ré to the rugged hills of Scotland, Sea of Memories is a spellbinding journey about the power of memory, love and second chances.

Lovely story.

I’m afraid that I found the narrators voice and style uncomfortable. The story was well written and was was carried along in it.

Enchanting story but let down by the narrator

This story is fantastic. It takes you away on a journey to distant times and places which feel so real you could be there. Whilst I cannot fault the story and the author's style of writing, I do feel that the narrator was not right for this book. I have never had an issue with any audible narrator before but I feel she is too stiff and her Scottish accent does not do the characters justice which is a real shame.

good book...bad narrator

I loved the book but struggled to listen to the narrator. Every sentence was like a question.

Audible review only!!

Note:. this is simply for the audio version.

I listen to audio books all the time during my commute, but I could not continue past the first chapter of this one. If it were all just character voices only, it would be ok. Those were fine. But the narrative had such a sing-song-y thing going on that I couldn't follow what was happening. It was just so odd to me. So disappointed. I'm looking forward to finding time to read the book myself.
