    Having given up a high-powered job, Tessa Hainsworth had no idea how hard she would struggle when she fulfils her dream of moving to Cornwall. Within months, she is almost ready to return to London: the family is running out of money - fast. But a chance encounter in the local post office leads her to accept the unlikeliest of job offers - as a postwoman.

    Boring

    Anna Bentinc can do better but she was annoying. Male voices are awful.
    Couldn't continue listening!

    Tessa Hainsworth used to have it all - except time, peace of mind and leisure to enjoy the fruits of her labours. One momentous spring, she and her husband decide to start again in Cornwall - and the story of Tessa's first turbulent year in adapting to her new life was told in her first book. Seagulls in the Attic now find Tessa a fully-fledged member of the community, but that doesn't mean life becomes any easier.

    Fantastic

    I have listened to Up with the Larks and loved it, and was not disappointed in Seagulls in the Attic. Being from Cornwall and desparate to move back..Show More »

    Seagulls in the Attic left Tessa thrilled as Annie, her best friend from London, fell in love and married a local Cornishman. Alas the newlyweds decide to settle out of the county but Tessa and her husband are delighted when a new young couple arrive in the village fresh from the city. However what looks such a promising new friendship turns into a nightmare, as these are people who think money can buy them acceptance - and the village is soon in quiet revolt. Tessa finds herself in the thick of it - and realises that she has grown very strong roots in the community in the two years she has been in Cornwall.

    Bullet points

    This is the third of Tessa Hainsworth`s books about the trials and tribulations of relocating from London to Cornwall and the whole series is thorough..Show More »
