After a short but happy marriage, Lorna and Roderick quarrelled, and separated, and Lorna, all too hastily, left her husband and two sons and fled to Spain to start a new life.

Lorna is a person people come to when in trouble, and one day her son Nicholas, now a handsome Naval Officer, appears at the beautiful Casa de Nuestra Señora del Carmen to ask her for advice regarding a lovely Spanish girl whose father is a friend of Lorna’s...and also a well-known smuggler.

Her younger son, Martin, now appears, also in need of help and advice, and Lorna - happily reunited with her son - enjoys catching up on many lost years of happiness.

Until one day Roderick Saracen comes searching for his sons, and for the first time in 20 years the family is complete...and together...and Lorna’s peaceful life is turned upside-down.

This romantic novel is peopled with some of Elizabeth Cadell’s most winning characters. It also boasts a glamorous setting, the beautiful Casa de Nuestra Señora del Carmen, Spanish home of Lorna Salvador, the background for the exciting events which follow.

Another superb narration by Elizabeth Cadell’s daughter

I’ve read this book many times but listening to it adds a new dimension. It’s so wonderful to now have Elizabeth Cadell’s wonderful books coming out on Audible.
This one is very special to me as it gives a nod to Rudyard Kipling’s The Smuggler’s Song - a long time favorite of mine.
The gentle narration, the romance, humorous writing, the mystery and yet another foreign setting all combine to make this into an audio book not to missed!
“Watch the wall my darling, as the gentlemen go by.”
