Summary

Liza McCullen will never escape her past, but the unspoilt beaches and tight-knit community of Silver Bay offer the safety she craves for her young daughter, Hannah...until Mike Dormer arrives, and the peace of Silver Bay is shattered.

The mild-mannered Englishman could destroy everything Liza has worked so hard to protect: not only the family business and the bay that harbours her beloved whales but also her conviction that she will never love again.

Please persevere

I downloaded this book eagerly because I love Jojo Moyes. However, unlike any other of her books I have listened to, it really was a struggle to get into it.

But I am so glad I persevered. This is a wonderful, heartwarming story and the narration is absolutely brilliant.

So please don’t give up or be put off by the slow start. It is so worth it to hang on in there.

Wonderful narration brought story to life

I’m a huge fan of JoJo Moyes anyway and was not disappointed by this tale of love (in its purest form). Both narrators were tremendous brings different characters to life across two continents; it’s hard to believe there were only two of them!

Jojo at her wonderful best

This author is staggering in the sheer range of her interests and knowledge - she must put such a lot of research into her novels, and they are so varied! This one is no exception. To my shame I had never been particularly interested in Australia before (big apologies to you all down under!!) but this novel inspired such a feeling of vivid beauty, warm fellowship and a very different life it has made me curious and keen to go there. The story has all Jojo's great elements: believeable, likeable characters, mysterious brooding undercurrents, a sense of suspense, unspoken love, vivid description of people and places, wonderfully structured story that dips in and out of the viewpoint of various characters.... just great. Hope you love it as much as I did.

a story of strength, assumption and love

one of the best of this author i have read so far. really takes you to this lovely bay which is held in a bit of a time warp. shows an array of characters and how we can all conw together and make a difference

annoying narrator

When Nicolette portrays Hannah it is excruciating. Spoils what is otherwise a good story. Plus the description s of what it is like to become a man.... Shame

Silver Bay

I have listened to several Jojo Moyes books and enjoyed them immensely. However this book just did not click with me on any level. I couldn’t get into it at all and the voices of the actors really irritating! My mind kept wandering when it was playing. Sorry Jojo x

Nice story , terrible narration

Really nice story, typical Jojo Moyes, nearly gave up half way through as the male narrator was very hard to listen to, he sounded like he was reading random words instead of sentences, glad I stuck with it though.
