Publisher's Summary

Rosa has arrived in London from Poland to look for her younger brother, Mikhail. He is supposed to be staying with their English father, but when she visits the house she finds it's locked up, and there's no sign of either of them.

Stef is running away from her boyfriend, Oliver. Frightened, friendless and far from her family, she needs somewhere to hide. All three find refuge at 11 Bellevue Gardens. Here its owner, Leonie, once herself found sanctuary and now opens her house to others in need.

What the Critics Say

"A richly emotional story, suspenseful and romantic, but unflinching in its portrayal of the dreadful reality and legacy of war." (Sunday Mirror on A Week in Paris)

    Story
    "Multiple characters linked by a house"
    Would you listen to The House on Bellevue Gardens again? Why?

    No, once was enough.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The House on Bellevue Gardens?

    I can't pick a particular moment, each character has their own back stories and personal crises.


    Which character – as performed by Helen Lloyd – was your favourite?

    This would probably be Leonie as she is the link between all the other residents of 11 Bellevue Gardens.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing comes to mind which is probably an indication that this wasn't one of my favourite Audible books.


    Any additional comments?

    I usually enjoy Rachel Hore's books more than this one. Possibly this was because there were too many characters. The link is the house in London but even the house itself didn't win me over, I didn't feel the descriptions gave the house a character of its own.

    "Not for those who enjoy action packed adventures"

    Not such good character portrayals as in other books I have read by this author. Quite a quaint little story, with threads of the lives of different characters running through the narrative. The narrator put unusual inflections in her delivery.
