Summary

Sheila Beattie knew exactly what her future would be. She would marry her sweetheart Eric, a fisherman like her father, and they would raise their family and dream their simple dreams in the village in which they’d been born.

Her life lay before her, happy, safe and secure. But she was sixteen - and about to discover in this world there is nothing certain but change. After all, no one and nothing can be trusted - except the voice of your own heart...

Delightful Story

This was my first audible book due to an eye operation. I really enjoyed the story telling with all the different voices and I was able to really get involved in the story as if I was there.
Absolutely lovely and this will be my first of many audible books.
I love Emma Blair stories and this was no disappointment.
