Publisher's Summary

Liza McCullen will never escape her past, but the unspoilt beaches and tight-knit community of Silver Bay offer the safety she craves for her young daughter, Hannah...until Mike Dormer arrives, and the peace of Silver Bay is shattered.

The mild-mannered Englishman could destroy everything Liza has worked so hard to protect: not only the family business and the bay that harbours her beloved whales but also her conviction that she will never love again.

Good story line annoying narration

Being a big fan of Audible and JoJo Moyes books I was terribly disappointed by the narration of this book. The male/female combination, especially the male narrative of female parts really grated on me and distracted from the book itself. I have never had this problem before with any of the books I have listened to. I would certainly be hesitant about listening to a book with Stan Pretty narrating.

Please persevere

I downloaded this book eagerly because I love Jojo Moyes. However, unlike any other of her books I have listened to, it really was a struggle to get into it.

But I am so glad I persevered. This is a wonderful, heartwarming story and the narration is absolutely brilliant.

So please don’t give up or be put off by the slow start. It is so worth it to hang on in there.

Wonderful narration brought story to life

I’m a huge fan of JoJo Moyes anyway and was not disappointed by this tale of love (in its purest form). Both narrators were tremendous brings different characters to life across two continents; it’s hard to believe there were only two of them!

Jojo at her wonderful best

This author is staggering in the sheer range of her interests and knowledge - she must put such a lot of research into her novels, and they are so varied! This one is no exception. To my shame I had never been particularly interested in Australia before (big apologies to you all down under!!) but this novel inspired such a feeling of vivid beauty, warm fellowship and a very different life it has made me curious and keen to go there. The story has all Jojo's great elements: believeable, likeable characters, mysterious brooding undercurrents, a sense of suspense, unspoken love, vivid description of people and places, wonderfully structured story that dips in and out of the viewpoint of various characters.... just great. Hope you love it as much as I did.

a story of strength, assumption and love

one of the best of this author i have read so far. really takes you to this lovely bay which is held in a bit of a time warp. shows an array of characters and how we can all conw together and make a difference

Silver Bay

I have listened to several Jojo Moyes books and enjoyed them immensely. However this book just did not click with me on any level. I couldn’t get into it at all and the voices of the actors really irritating! My mind kept wandering when it was playing. Sorry Jojo x

Slow start but worth it.

I thought I was going to give up on this book, but, as it went on I couldn’t wait to get back to it. I loved it. The narrators were excellent.
The pictures it conjures up were magical. I could almost hear the whales. Sad it is finished.

Slow to start but keep going

I have read snd listened to lots of Jojo Moyes books this is not her best, it is hard going for the first 2-3 hours. I struggled to connect the characters or even to care at times but eventually something clicked and the story got going. It comes good in the end and I enjoyed the book, there are worse listens out there but I'm glad this was on a 2 for 1 deal.
