Elfrida Phipps, once of London's stage, moved to the English village of Dibton in hopes of making a new life for herself. Gradually she settled into the comfortable familiarity of village life - shopkeepers knowing her tastes, neighbors calling her by name - still she finds herself lonely.

I loved the Shell Seekers and the narrator Hayley Atwell took you right into the time and place of the story. I was looking for another such delight. But the narrator of Winter Solstice, Jilly Bond makes you wish you were elsewhere. I didn't get too far with the story simply because I couldn't listen to it any longer.
