Summary

Deep in the English countryside, Marshwood has always been much more than just a house. It has been the backdrop for elegant parties, a wartime hospital and an idyllic escape from trauma and unhappy marriages. When the roof starts to cave in and the money runs out, 80-year-old Bella resists the pressure to sell and instead begins to peel back the layers of the past.

As this imposing house gives up its secrets of marriage, war and forbidden love, patterns begin to repeat themselves when Jack, Bella’s granddaughter’s childhood sweetheart, returns from the war in Bosnia. Like so many before him, Jack comes seeking solace. But he also wants Isla, who is unavailable to him. And as all three characters explore whether you can ever truly go back, the past and the present collide with shattering consequences.

Somewhere For Relaxation

Would you consider the audio edition of Some Other Eden to be better than the print version?

Yes I much prefer audio as you can take yourself off into the book and imagine your own scenery pictures.

What did you like best about this story?

That the ending wasn't what you expected, a different relationship was saved - it made me shed a tear or two.

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

She manages to have different audio voices for the characters.

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

The end part when the husband came back to save his marriage.

Any additional comments?

You have to listen to this - it goes over several decades so you have to concentrate to keep up but it whole book had me in awe.

some other eden

A delightful beautiful read. A fresh tale, not the usual modern book written to sexualy excite but a true tale of love. Very well written
