Publisher's Summary

Celebrate life's journeys with the beloved author whose stories of life and love have touched the world.

As in her worldwide best sellers The Shell Seekers and September, it is the richness of emotional seasons that has made Rosamunde Pilcher's novels beloved the world over. Now she invites listeners into long summer days on the coast of Cornwall - and into the stormy heart of newlywed Laura Haverstock.

Shy, recovering from illness, and away from her husband, Laura's is a fearful heart on the verge of intimate discoveries...about herself, her family, and the source of true love within her.

Voices in Summer speaks gently to the heart, in a voice that is Rosamunde Pilcher at her storytelling best.

LOVE the author. Detest the narration.

I adore Rosamunde Pilcher!! Her books are magical! This is the 2nd book of hers read by Jilly Bond that I've given up on an returned. the narration is just awful. the voices are forced and often shrill. I physically wince repeated while trying to listen. Oh, well. :(

Exceedinly Disappointing!

I've loved all of Rosamunde Pilcher's books for decades and own the audiobook cassettes from the late 90's read by Donada Peters. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to add unabridged digital copies to my collection. This narration is appalling though! Another reviewer aptly described Jilly Bond's narration as "shrill." Mrs. Pilcher's novels are beautifully descriptive and usually a peaceful escape. Audible's new version does not do justice to the story and in fact, is so grating I will pull out my old beloved cassettes before listening to this narration again. What a disappointment!
