Publisher's Summary

Rosamunde Pilcher's best-selling, heartwarming tale of innocence and youth set during the 1930s.

Born in Colombo, Judith Dunbar spends her teenage years at boarding school while her beloved mother and younger sister live abroad with her father. When her new friend, Loveday Carey-Lewis, invites Judith home for the weekend to Nancherrow, the Carey-Lewises' beautiful estate on the Cornish coast, it is love at first sight.

She falls in love, too, with the generous Carey-Lewises themselves. With their generosity and kindness, Judith grows from naive girl to confident young woman, basking in the warm affection of a surrogate family whose flame burns brightly. But it is a flame soon to be extinguished in the gathering storm of war. And Judith herself has far to travel before at last...coming home.

Excellent Story, Brilliant Narration

A fan of Rosamunde Pilcher’s work, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Although it is long, I didn’t ever lose interest in the story, and warmed to the well-rounded and believable characters.

Helen Johns’ voicing of the various characters is amazing! The only fault I could find with her pronunciation is of the Sydney suburb of TURRAMURRA. Her Australian accent did not ring true in places, but this is a minor matter.

The story, set just before, during and after WWII, would appeal to anyone interested in this era.

A very enjoyable read!

loved it!

I'd read the book numerous times when I was younger and have enjoyed this just as much. It's a long book but I love it so much, I always wish it was longer. Great narration and lovely story.
