Summary

His parting gift to her was a new beginning....

Julia Lovat walks away from her seven-year affair with Michael with a broken heart and his final gift to her - an antique book full of secrets. The book is the diary of Catherine Treganna, who was kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery in Morocco 400 years ago.

When Julia travels to Morocco to discover Cat's fate, she is quickly lost in an exotic and vibrant land. Her guide is Idriss, a man so charismatic and beguiling that their meeting feels like destiny. And so, in the heat and dust, two love stories, separated by four centuries, entwine and blossom....

The Tenth Gift is an enthralling story of secrets and discovering love where you least expect it.

One of the best audio books I’ve listened to

I’d already listened to Jane Johnson’s The Sea Gate narrated my Anna Cordell, which I loved. When I first started The Tenth Gift I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy it. The story seemed a little dull and I couldn’t understand the reason why there was a male narrator as well as a female one. However I persisted and quickly realised how wrong I was! Both Susan Duerden and John Lee did a superb job (John’s accents were excellent I thought) and the story got so tense and exciting that I couldn’t stop listening and started shirking just so I could hear more! Very skilfully written with a wealth of detailed descriptions. Truly one of my best listens in a very long time and I highly recommend it!

Brilliant story but...

loved the story and the narration as a whole but I wish they had spoken to some locals to get the pronunciation right on some words particularly Bolitho..
