Publisher's Summary

Rosamunde Pilcher's major best seller, also a successful TV film, now available in unabridged audio download.

As spring comes to Scotland and the hills burst into life, a dance is planned for September. The invitations summon home the group of people Violet Aird has cared for most in her long life. The oldest, strongest and wisest of them all, she sees Alexa, her vulnerable granddaughter, find love for the first time while the decision to send her little grandson away to school is driving parents Edmund and Virginia even further apart.

Far from them all is Pandora, the glamorous, exciting girl who ran away 20 years before. All will converge on Scotland this September, bringing their stories with them.

©1990 Fiona Mary Pilcher (P)2017 Hodder & Stoughton Limited

Fabulous

Would you consider the audio edition of September to be better than the print version?

Not better, equally as good. I enjoyed both.

What was one of the most memorable moments of September?

The ending! I won’t give it away. Even though I knew what was going to happen as I had read the book I was still shocked by the ending.

Which character – as performed by Jilly Bond – was your favourite?

Jilly Bond did an excellent job with the Scottish accents - I especially liked Vi, Edie and Mrs Ishac. The voice she did for Lottie Carstairs was menancing, snooty and mad as a hatter!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Scotland in September, the thrills and spills of the Highland Dance Season.

Any additional comments?

Jilly Bond is an excellent narrator, I love this audiobook.

September in Scotland

I loved this story of family, friends and village life in Scotland. Jilly Bond read the story with all the different accents very well. The ending was a surprise..

Talk about hard going

I found it almost impossible to concentrate on the story because of the dreadful narration. The accents are ridiculous, lady Violet sounds like a demented old Welsh woman while little Henry is similar.. A few chapters were all I could manage. I am returning the book. A shame as I like this author.

September

What a lovely book so well written and narrated. My first Rosamunde Pilcher listen/read story entwined generations friends and family....with a ending that you don’t expect. Fabulous descriptive writing making you feel as though you could be there.

Not t her best

I usually love Rosalind Pilcher but this was disappointing - the narration was awful and at times I nearly returned the book because of it but I stuck it out til the end.

Enjoyable

I really enjoyed listening to this audio I liked the narrator and the story, I though the ending the last 35mins went on too long and did get boring otherwise it was a good listen.

A good family saga

Jilly Bond's narration was stunningly good. She brought all the characters to life and the voices were distinct from one another. A complex family drama with a few twists and turns.
An enjoyable read.

This was a lovely story. Very well read and it actually transported me to Scotland and all that beautiful country offers. Felt I was standing alongside, with each character as the story unfolded.

Great story terrible narration

I had read this story years ago and enjoyed listening to it but if I had been listening to it for the first time I don't think I could have coped with the narration of some of the male voices ( Noel and Henry for instance) .
