Publisher's Summary

Near the rugged Australian coastline beaten by the winds of the wild, great Southern Ocean sits a forgotten stationmaster's cottage holding secrets of a tragic love story.

These are secrets Christie Ryan knows nothing about when she unexpectedly inherits her estranged grandmother's cottage in the small seaside town of River's End. There, Christie finds love letters that have remained unopened for close to 50 years. The letters tell of a great-aunt she never knew existed and a love so powerful that Christie becomes determined to uncover what kept the young couple apart. 

Her quest leads her to the door of reclusive local artist Martin, who Christie is convinced holds the key to the questions she seeks to answer. But Martin is wary of the newcomer and has important reasons for keeping Christie at arm's length. 

As the search continues, Christie realizes uncovering her family's past may help her discover the truth of who she really is. But before the decades old mystery can be solved, Christie will be faced with deciding what it truly means to love someone.

Includes Taming the Wind, a bonus prequel novella from the River’s End series.

Good story

The Stationmaster’s Cottage has a unique storyline that has a bit of everything you need for a good book: romance, history, drama, and a touch of mystery. It kept me engaged (even though a character used swear words I despise-GD) throughout with some interesting characters and fascinating twists. I appreciate the struggle the female lead goes through to find her independence from what I would call an emotionally abusive, passive-aggressive jerk. It shows the strength of her character. The narrator gave a nice performance throughout.

❤️Can't say enough how much I loved it❤️❤️

5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review for the Stationmasters Cottage I so loved ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️this story! I read this book a few weeks ago and immediately wished I would have gotten the audio as I knew I would have been completely swept away. Well know I've listened to it and it exceed my expectations which were set very high! The narrator is new to me, I loved her and will search out more books by her. She really brought all the emotion to life while moving in and out of character seamlessly.Such an amazing love story written in two timelines 1966 and present. I found a new favorite author and new favorite narrator!

Beautiful cinematic romance

I enjoyed this seaside escape to Australia. The writing is evocative and the narrator is excellent! This is the first time I’ve listened to an Australian audiobook and I loved her accent, though there were some Aussie expressions that were new to me - like how everyone has “pot plants” on their porches, not what it sounds like to an American XD haha! But it all helps build the atmosphere. I don’t want to spoil the story but I would recommend this to friends.
