Publisher's Summary

One of Rosamunde Pilcher's classic stories, now in unabridged audio download.

Virginia Keile has a secret dream. To have a second chance at loving the tall, handsome Cornish farmer she met - and foolishly lost - the heady summer she was a debutante.

Life has taught Virginia a great deal in 27 years - about wedding a titled bachelor picked out by her mother, about a lonely marriage that ended in her husband's accidental death, and about nearly losing her children to her husband's mother and bossy Nanny. Now she has come back to picturesque Cornwall to rent a battered seaside cottage. For herself and for the children. And to discover if this time she can fill an empty house with love.

Lovely story

A story of second chances. After the deaths of her controlling mother and playboy husband, our heroine bumps into someone she's met 10 years ago. She grows in confidence and at last begins to make decisions for herself. Very enjoyable. It did finish a little suddenly, but you could guess what would happen from there on.

Much better story than Gemini but rather short

hoping for a longer book next, but it's still the best way to get to sleep.
