Summary

Edmund Forth, a handsome young man in his mid-30s (though admittedly, a bit stogy and sober for his years) is engaged to the beautiful but selfish Angela Wilde. His world seems perfect until lovely Fran Nash comes riding into his life on the back of a Portuguese donkey. 

Fran’s sunny personality melts Edmund’s reserve, and when she changes a few words of a telegram he had entrusted to her, Fran also alters the whole course of his settled existence.

One of the best books I’ve ever listened to

The narration by Anna Guerrier was superb. Language of the Heart struck all the right notes with a sweetly romantic love story, eclectic mix of characters and beautifully described locations and scenery.
One of Elizabeth Cadell’s best books - enhanced by adding wonderful narration.

Sweetly Romantic

It was such a pleasure to read well developed, colorful characters. Intelligent, funny and warm-hearted, this is a winner!

So enjoyable!!!

This is one of Elizabeth Cadell’s very best books. I’ve read all of them I could find and this one is a favorite along with The Lark Shall Sing and Six Impossible Things. I enjoy how she takes seemingly unrelated story lines and ties them in a pretty little bow!!!
