Would you consider the audio edition of Sheltering Rain to be better than the print version?

I loved the audio version, beautifully read and portrayed by Judith Boyd.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sabine was my favourite character I loved the way she changed and matured at the end.

What does Judith Boyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Her wonderful way of characterising each person, so you know who is who.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A lovely family saga which spans from Hong Kong to England and then to Ireland

Any additional comments?

Very good story by Jojo Moyes. One of her best.

Yet another lovely story from Jo Jo Moyes. I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a story about a troubled young woman who is unhappy with her life and tries to find herself by opening a little shop, where she can just be herself. Coming from a family who really love her but she cannot see it. And a husband she is unhappy with. This book definitely deserves a read. I would highly recommend it.

Lovely story. Poignant, romantic and joyful. I could feel Caroline's pain over her daughter. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Yet another good read by Maggie Myers. Beautifully read by Kate Rudd. I would definitely recommend this book.
