Description

This breathtaking novel travels more than a century between two love stories set in the Australian seaside town of Lighthouse Bay.

In 1901, a ship sinks off the coast of Lighthouse Bay in Australia. The only survivor is Isabella Winterbourne - escaping her loveless marriage and the devastating loss of her son - who clutches a priceless gift meant for the Australian Parliament. Suddenly, this gift could be her ticket to a new life, free from the bonds of her husband and his overbearing family.

One hundred years later, Libby Slater leaves her life in Paris to return to her hometown of Lighthouse Bay. Living in the cottage that was purchased by her recently passed lover, she hopes to heal her broken heart and reconcile with her sister, Juliet. Libby did something so unforgivable 20 years ago, Juliet is unsure if she can ever trust her sister again.

In this adventurous love story spanning centuries, both Isabella and Libby must learn that letting go of the past is the only way to move into the future.

Excellent story!

Loved it... the characters past & present became like friends. I was sad to say goodbye. Can't wait to buy the next book by Kimberly! And Caroline is now one of my favorite narrators!

Gloomy tale

Very long, gloomy tale with a self-absorbed, whiny unsympathetic heroine who suffers every hardship short of being tied to the railroad tracks.

Just a romance

If you like romances, you will likely enjoy this book. I had trouble relating to Isabella, and I did not love Libby either as for the most part they got trapped in problems that were of their own making.

A match made in heaven!

I was already a fan of Kimberley Freeman. And Caroline Lee may be my favorite narrator of all the audiobooks I’ve listened to thus far. So I was excited for this book. I’m pleased to say that I was not disappointed. Lee is great at distinguishing characters and portraying their emotions with subtle tone changes. And while long novels sometimes take time to grab your attention, to draw you into the story, this one was rather instant. Another wonderful Kimberly Freeman and Caroline Lee match up.

Awful

After drudging through this book for almost 14 hours, I am finally throwing in the towel. There is no character development or chemistry. They are simply people doing things. I don't feel connected to the characters at all. Libby is a woman who thinks having a 12 year affair with a married man is okay. Isabella is an annoying, crazy woman who is completely overcome with grief. The two of them need a big ol' slap upside the head. This book makes me embarrassed for women.

nice story, poor writing style

the story is captivating, but author writes like a teenager or perhaps it is directed at younger audience.

Mixed feelings

I’m a fan of this author but this left me disappointed. Storyline was not close to believable. Ending was too abrupt and Lee’s narration of the strong characters were too heavy. Still, it does keep you on the edge of your seat. 50/50 on this one.

Reader wonderful! story frustratingly incomplete

I love Caroline Lee so I seek out the Audible books where she is the narrator. She did not disappoint, but this story itself leaves you frustrated. The main characters are not really that likable, especially the modern day characters. The two stories take forever to come together and really leave you wanting more. Lastly, there’s too much that’s left undone. I finished it frustrated and glad that it was over.

Light Beach Read

Minimally interesting. A made for TV plot that doesn't call for full focus so it would be perfect for beach reading. Grating narration.
