Publisher's Summary

Escaping an unhappy marriage and an unsatisfactory job, Cassie Holloway moves to the little NSW coastal town of Whitby Point. Here she meets the Aquino family, whose fishing business was founded by their ancestor, Giuseppe, an immigrant Italian, some ninety years before. Life for Cassie on the south west coast is sweet as she sets up a successful restaurant and falls in love with Giuseppe's great grandson Michael. But when the family patriarch dies, a devastating family secret is revealed which threatens to destroy her dreams. Cassie's future happiness now rests with her quest for the truth.

    "Another great Di Morrissey novel"

    I have read almost every Di Morrissey book; this was my first audible. The reader Kate Hood was EXCELLENT and the story was yet another brilliantly written, captivating read.

    Story
    "Australia at It's Best"

    My first experience listening to a Di Morrissey Audio book. Was a bit hesitant at first, as
    I thought the story might drag on a bit. I was very wrong. Beautifully narrated, and captured the unique Australian background to the storyline. Loved the story.

    Story
    "Beautiful and thoroughly engrossing"
    Where does The Winter Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Amongst the best, I'm sure I will listen to it again


    What did you like best about this story?

    The overall story content and interesting characters


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Hood’s performances?

    Perhaps


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Pretty well


    Any additional comments?

    I really loved this story, although a little over descriptive at times. The Narrator is too sickly sweet for my liking.

    Story
    "Argh!"

    Struggled through the book - partly narration partly story. The voice of Cassy so irritating. The 'interesting' (read irritating) tidbits around fishing and basically everything else was not making the story more interesting but rather patronising. Not worth a credit.
