Publisher's Summary

The Jacobs family has lived at Orley Court for generations. But when Vanessa Jacobs is widowed and left to manage the property, she finds costs spiralling out of control. In order to stay in their beloved home, she and her daughters will have to sell part of it off - a decision that drives a wedge between Vanessa and her mother-in-law.

The new owners of the north wing are Laurence Sturridge and his father, Marcus. Both of them long for an escape: Laurence from the monotony of his City career; Marcus from the grief of losing his wife. Could the beauty of Orley Court offer them a fresh outlook on life?

As the two families embark on a challenging new chapter over the course of a glorious English summer, secrets are revealed and relationships tested. But as Orley Court begins to weave its magic over them, will it be love, above all, that brings the two families together?

    "Lovely, heart-warming story"

    This is a heart-warming story of loss, broken and restored relationships, and finding love again.
    Wonderfully done, the descriptions of the gardens and the English countryside made me feel as if I were there.

    Lovely, endearing characters. The stories of each one unfold and blend together seamlessly.

    I listened to the audio version of this story and narrator, Susan Duerden, did a fantastic job.
    I would definitely read more by this author.

    "Pretty Good Story"

    The first time I read this author...The story was pretty good and the descriptions of the garden were nice. I Liked the characters although there were quite a few story lines
    going at the same time... a lot of switching back and forth...I DID NOT like the narrator....her voice was cloying....the only reason I stuck with it was because the story was held my attention.. Will not listen to another book with this narrator.

    Story
    "Possibly the worst narrator!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I've literarily listen to hundreds of Audible books but I have to say this is the worst narrator ever. That's why I could not recommend this book to a friend, although the story is OK.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The worst intonation ever, not as bad when as the voices of a characters, but otherwise really nerve grating.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    probably not

    "Precious"

    I am not a regular romance reader, but this romance captured my attention and then my heart. I have a lovely garden and this story brought it to life. Narration took a bit to get used to but she did an amazing job.

    "Spoiled by robotic reading."

    I really do not like giving poor reviews, but my enjoyment of this book was totally spoiled by the way it was read, had to give up listening, just could not stand it, so very irritating, in future I will listen to the samples before buying, the book itself was a reasonably good story.

    "Lovely Story"

    I always enjoy Victoria Connelly's books but I really didn't enjoy the narration. However it was a very sweet tale.

    "Narration ruined a good story"
    Any additional comments?

    The story was lovely but totally ruined by the narration. I was going to give up on it at the beginning but I did persevere and enjoyed the story itself. I've learnt that I was always listen to a sample before purchasing from now on.
