Publisher's Summary

A haunting story of yearning, love and betrayal from the best-selling author of Thornwood House.

Lucy Briar has arrived home in turmoil after years overseas. She's met her fiancé in London and has her life mapped out, but something is holding her back.

Hoping to ground herself and find answers, Lucy settles into once familiar routines. But old tortured feelings flood Lucy's existence when her beloved father, Ron, is hospitalised and Morgan - the man who drove her away all those years ago - seeks her out.

Worse, Ron implores Lucy to visit Bitterwood Estate, the crumbling historic family guesthouse now left to him. He needs Lucy to find something - an old photograph album, the very thing that drove Ron and his father apart.

Lucy has her own painful memories of Bitterwood, darkness that has plagued her dreams since she was young. But as Lucy searches for the album, the house begins to give up its ghosts and she is driven to put them to rest.

And there, held tightly between the house, the orchard and the soaring cliffs, Lucy uncovers a long-hidden secret that shattered a family's bond and kept a frightened young girl in its thrall...and Lucy discovers just how fierce the lonely heart can be.

    "Take the time to listen....so worth it!"

    You definitely need to pay attention to keep up with the three story lines. By chapter 8...I was sorta lost so started at the beginning and listening only when I was able to concentrate....like doing dishes, making Beds, blow drying my hair or at work editing photos. I loved the narrator.

    "Trouble following story"
    What disappointed you about Beyond the Orchard?

    I had a lot of trouble getting into the storyline.


    Have you listened to any of Hannah Norris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but her performance was fine. I would definitely listen to other reads of hers.


    Any additional comments?

    Just disappointed.

    "Convoluted Story, Good Narrator"

    This story jumped around from one time period to another. It was hard to place the characters for several chapters. I'm thinking that it might be better to read this book, rather than listen to it. The narrator was the only reason I finished the book, as none of the characters were very interesting or sympathetic.
