    Simone Fleurier is wrenched from her home on a Provencal lavender farm at the age of 14 after the accidental death of her father. Forced to become a maid at the boarding house of her Aunt Augustine in Marseilles, Simone's life is hard and impoverished. But one of her aunt's boarders, the beautiful Camille Casal, a star at the local music hall, gives Simone a dream: that one day she too will be a famous singer and dancer.

    Story

    I have listened to all of Belinda Alexandra's books that are available on Audible. I am impressed with how much her writing improves from one book to the next. That said, this book is her earliest published book available, and it is rather weak. It doesn't have the character or plot development or complexity of her latest books. While this one is not her finest, I will be looking forward to more Belinda Alexandra books. If you haven't already, I would suggest listening to "Golden Earrings" instead.

    A long lost letter arrives in the post, and Edie Burchill finds herself on a journey to Milderhurst Castle, a great but moldering old house, where the Blythe spinsters live and where her mother was billeted 50 years before as a 13-year-old child during WW II. The elder Blythe sisters are twins and have spent most of their lives looking after the third and youngest sister, Juniper, who hasn't been the same since her fiancé jilted her in 1941.

    "Similar, but not as strong"
    Overall

    As someone who loved Shifting Fog, and throughly enjoyed Forgotten Garden I was thrilled to see the new Kate Morton book was finally available. Though still a good listen I dont think the character development, or story line are as strong in The Distant Hours. My attention wandered much more in this book than either of her others; The plot is rather similar to her other books & rather predictable. I will be interested to see what others who have not read Morton's other books will think of it, they may have a warmer review than mine.
