When Flora, James, and their two teenage daughters are offered the holiday of a lifetime in a chateau in the South of France in return for one simple good deed, they jump at the chance.

    "Far too long"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'd take out half the adjectives . "Glorious" is certainly very overused .


    What was most disappointing about Catherine Alliott’s story?

    It started off well but sagged in the middle .


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

    Very easy to listen to .


    Was Wish You Were Here worth the listening time?

    Most of it .

    Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...

    "A disappointment"

    I always look forward to another book from this author. This one, however, was below average. The story line is thin without compensating charm, the characters annoying, and the narration breathy. Two stars because I made it to the end. I would skip this one.

    Story
    "Not the greatest Catherine Alliott book."

    Disappointing, storyline is weak and very predictable.
    If you are looking for an easy listen without concentrating too much, this is for you. If you require something substantial with realistic story lines them give this a miss.

    "Enjoyable holiday read"

    Good entertaining storyline couldnt stop listening. Transported to the South of France with extended family enjoyed the characters and family relationships with many unexpected twists and turns to the story.
