Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.

Would you listen to Sand Castle Bay again? Why?

I love the narration & storyline.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sand Castle Bay?

The connection between Emily & BJ.

What does Shannon McManus bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She's great at giving each character a voice that easy to follow as you listen along.

In the wake of a tragedy that tore her life down to its foundations, Dr. Alison McAdams has lost her way. So when she's summoned to Napa to care for her ailing father, she's not sure she has anything to offer him - or anyone else. What Ali finds in Northern California wine country is a gift, an opportunity to rest, and distance from her painful memories. In a quest to discover the truth about another woman's lost love, she sets off on a journey across oceans and deep into history. And in making sense of that long-ago tragedy, Ali is able to put together the broken pieces of her heart.

Loved the storyline about a teenage girl dealing with depression & anxiety. I'm a 43 yo wife & mother and I can really relate to this book and wanting to be isolated. Great job, Sophie!! Another great read!
