Sitting on a California beach at summer's end, Jane Marsh thinks back to her childhood at the estate called Elvie in a remote corner of Scotland. She remembers not only the heather-covered hills and the lonesome loch, but her grandmother ...and, of course, Sinclair. She has secretly dreamed of marrying rakishly handsome Sinclair and settling at Elvie forever. Then an urgent visit from her grandmother's lawyer becomes the catalyst for her return to Scotland ...Where waiting for her is passion, not gentle love, and the chilling realisation that she may be ready to wed the wrong man.

Rosamunde Pilcher has had a long and distinguished career as a novelist and a short story writer, but it was her phenomenally successful novel, The Shell Seekers, that captured the hearts of all who read it and won her international recognition as one of the best-loved storytellers of our time. Her most recent bestseller, Coming Home, was also made into a television filmFrom AudioFile:
This first-person narrative is told by Scottish heroine Jane Marsh, who is currently living in California. Stella Gonet portrays each of the Scottish characters with light accents; the Americans sound native. Gonet's warm voice reflects the love of Jane's grandmother and father, and adjusts to the harsher tones of Sinclair's calculated love. This captivating tale is marred only by the low tone of Gonet's voice, which sometimes fades, requiring adjustment of the volume. M.B.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
