Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Paullina Simons comes a fascinating novel of love, betrayal, and the price of passion.

Nothing is ever as it seems…

Larissa Stark is many things. Wife, mother, devoted friend, and unhappy. Her seemingly charmed life in a New Jersey suburb should leave her fulfilled and content. Instead, she feels increasingly isolated and empty. But when she has a chance encounter with an intriguing stranger, her idyllic existence is exposed for the sham it is and leads her to question everything she once firmly believed. 

As Larissa is faced with one impossible choice after another, she begins to contemplate the unthinkable and struggles with the question that will inevitably change the course of her life: how does one woman follow a divided heart?

Spanning the affluent suburbs of New Jersey, the slums of Manila, and the desolate beauty of the Australian outback, A Song in the Daylight is an unforgettable, powerful story of the bonds that unite us - and the desires that can ultimately drive us apart.

Interesting story

The thing that made me cringe the most was the worst Australian accent I have ever heard and the mis pronunciation of Australian places. Cringe! I think Jane needs a lot more practice before attempting it again. Apart from that, it was no Bronze Horseman but I liked it. I had a love hate relationship with the main character. I learnt what not to do and what to appreciate more. I found it frustrating and long winded at times but I could not stop. Paulina is a great Author a little (more) time in Australia’s out back would give her a better understanding of how true country people are. Totally different to the city Aussies! Can’t wait for the next book!!

This is the best fictional piece I’ve ever heard! Fantastic narrator. Long listening time!
I love how this author writes. Don’t start this book on Friday. You won’t get anything done all weekend .

One of the Best books I have ever listened to.

This book is so well written and narrated that it was difficult to even stop for a break. When I do not want a book to end, I know it s a great book. I had to relisten to last two chapters as so much happens I did not want to miss a word. Every word written is so real and full of heartfelt passages.

I will never be able to look at a jaguar in the same way...........

Stressful and disappointing

stressful and disappointing was this book. I skipped around alot especially to the end. the ending was strange. I still really like Paullina but this one didn't do it for me at all.

Well-written, excellent narration and could not stop listening.

One of the best books I’ve ever read. Shocking and Moving. A deep and tragic story but also, uplifting because there is a vein of acceptance and survival in the people left behind. So many questions were stirred while listening, the biggest one being, How could she? And the ultimate answer was, because she couldn’t help herself.

Awful characters

I hated all the characters and could not wait for for the book to be over. Not the Bronze Horseman!
