Summary

Escape the cold winter nights with Sunday Times top five best seller Heidi Swain's Summer at Skylark Farm

Amber is a city girl at heart. So when her boyfriend, Jake, suggests they move to the countryside to help out at his family farm, she doesn't quite know how to react. But work has been hectic, and she needs a break, so she decides to grasp the opportunity and make the best of it.  

Dreaming of organic orchards, paddling in streams and frolicking in fields, Amber packs up her things and moves to Skylark Farm. But life is not quite how she imagined - it's cold and dirty, and the farm buildings are dilapidated and crumbling.  

But Amber is determined to make the best of it and throws herself into farm life. Can she really fit in here? And can she and Jake stay together when they are so different?  

A story of love in the countryside from the Sunday Times best-selling author of the The Cherry Tree Café and Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at the Christmas Fair

Delight and suspense

This author has the wonderful knack of transporting the listener right alongside the characters. Would love to see all these Winthorp novels in a tv series.

Enjoyable listen.

A pleasant listen, although a little predictable in places. The adjective 'Gargantuan' is used a tad too much.
Great narration.

Could have been so much better if only ...

Jake hadn't been such a b*tthead, the ridiculous big misunderstanding that tried to make Amber the one in the wrong, and the true villains of the story just walking away without even a slap on the wrist.
I simply can't say enough about what an unlikable man Jake was from beginning to end. Ugh!
The premise of the story and the details of the farm were wonderful; such a shame it was wasted - could've left everyone out except Amber, Aunt Annie, and maybe Jessica.
