Summary

Rowan Hill means many things to many people, but to Ellie Hesketh it represents new beginnings. Putting her life back together after a break-up is going to take time, but the crumbling country estate - as much in need of TLC as she is - seems the perfect place to do it.

But Ellie is not the only person for whom Rowan Hill is a refuge. There's Will, damaged and complicated, whose secrets almost nobody knows. And Finn, his brother, who's finally decided to stop running from his own past. As Ellie is drawn further into saving the estate, she can't help but try saving the brothers too - and she's sure she knows just how to go about it. The trouble is, she's been accused of meddling before...

By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, this story of friendship, forgiveness and unexpected romance reveals the lies we tell to hide dark secrets - and what can happen when we let in a little light.

Is this the worst narration ever?

I think Henrietta Meire reading this could win the prize for the worst narration ever, if there was such a prize she would certainly be a contender. I tried really hard to cope with the narrator as I wanted to listen to the story and it seemed quite promising,however when I had listened to about half to two thirds of it I couldn't bear the awful narration any more. I gave it up and am about to return it. The narrator has a nice voice she just should never be let near a microphone! The way she reads gives you that nails down a blackboard feeling. I wish I'd taken notice of the other reviewers now.

Not relaxing listening...

Unfortunately I didn’t like the narrator and so lost interest in the story not long into the book.

spoiled by poor narration

unfortunately I struggled to listen as the narration was so clipped and lacked any emotion.
