A divorced woman, Roberta Jewett, returns to Camden, Maine, with her three daughters, to start a new life on her own. It's the summer of 1916 and Roberta faces the obstacles of rumors and innuendo, not to mention the lack of support from her mother and sister. In her efforts to rebuild both her life and a ramshackle house on the harbor, Roberta endures violence, betrayal, and her share of pain. But she also finds love, friendship, and acceptance from a most unlikely source.
Come to Camden and share this summer story by the master weaver of life's tales, LaVyrle Spencer, New York Times best selling author and winner of the Romance Writers of America Golden Medallion Award.

I purchased this book thinking either the "unabridged" or the "3hrs 10 min", was wrong. I figured since David Dukes narrated the "unabridged" version which I own on cassette, I was probably safe in assuming it was unabridged. I was WRONG! The book has been abridged all to HECK! The unabridged version is 12 hours in length. I called about this mistake a couple months ago and waited for it to be corrected, and got tired of waiting. I'm upset about my 1st purchase from Audible. YOU NEED TO CORRECT YOUR INFO, and i hope you will get the unabridged version up.
I have read this book three times and listened to it once. Like most of her novels, it's as satisfying a romance as anything can get. This isn't a simplistic, formula type of story. I always refer to Spencer's books as "brain candy for the intelligent reader." Even my husband, who usually reads philosophy and history for fun, enjoyed listening in.
Dog fanatic, loves brit Lit, Classics, Irish Lit, and an Occasional smart chic lit. Audible obsessed. Love my dogs like the good life.
"That Camden Summer" one reviewer said "and I wished it had gone on for 20 more hours" That is exactly how I felt about this selection. The audio does not have as much quality as Iam use to..(probably done a while ago)- but the story more than makes up for it. After a while the only thing I paid any attention to was this wonderful story. You want to read this one.
Clean cut love story. Few swear words etc.
There were several. Liked the way Roberta loved her children.
Quotes from Hiawatha for one.
I own the book, and the cassette tapes and also this purchase as an autio book.
I live on an island off the coast of Maine. Since I installed a "doggie door" I am now retired from "Letting The Dogs In and Out"!
Probably not but was interested in the whole story.
It was interesting but not gripping because it was somewhat predictable.
I have read this book once before and really wanted to read it again but with lack of time thought I'd try an Audio book. Still a great story but the Audio has missed out so much of the book. If you haven't read the book and then listen to the Audio you would know but after reading the book and then listening it's a little frustrating knowing that a lot is missing. However, it's a great book.
I have no issue with the story but the voice is really BAD ...especially when the narrator tries to imitate the voices of children. He would be better off just reading it straight. It's really irritating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
THE STORY WAS PLEASANT. THE CHARACTERS WERE REALLY NOT DEVELOPED ALL THAT WELL. I COULD NOT PICTURE THEM. THE BOOK SEEMED RUSHED.
NO BUT I WOULDN'T TELL THEM NOT TO READ IT. IT WAS OK. I CAN'T SAY I DIDN'T ENJOY IT. BUT IT WAS A LITTLE SHALLOW ON DEVELOPMENT.
I MITE. I DID NOT CARE FOR HIS NARATION BUT HE WAS OK.
NO IT NEEDS A MORE DETAILED REWRITE. IT WAS MISSING SOMETHING. I FELT LIKE WELL, WHAT HAPPENED HERE. IT WAS OVER TOO FAST.
