Publisher Description

"A strong cast of five narrators rewinds time and transports listeners to sparkling seascapes and the English countryside." - AudioFile Magazine Celebrate life's journeys with the beloved author whose stories of life and love touched the world. A Place Like Home is a spellbinding collection of short stories by internationally bestselling author Rosamunde Pilcher, never before published in book form. The collection contains fifteen stories, which range from "Our Holiday", in which a wife surprises her husband of twenty-five years with a holiday full of Mediterranean sunshine, red rocks and blue seas in an effort to rekindle the romance they had before children; "Through the Eyes of Love", which takes the reader to a village by the sea where old flames meet again; and "A Place Like Home", where a lonely young woman goes to recuperate in the Scottish countryside after a brief illness. The fruit orchards and fresh sea air offer much needed respite—but not as much as the handsome, mysterious farmer she meets. Each unforgettable story is the perfect slice of romance written with warmth and passion featuring wonderfully memorable, smart, and feisty female characters that will transport the reader to another time and place.

“A strong cast of five narrators rewinds time and transports listeners to sparkling seascapes and the English countryside…There's a dreamy softness to most of the romantic tales, and narrator Jasmine Blackborow exemplifies this mood in ‘Skelmerton’ with her tender-voiced portrayal of a woman falling in love. Narrator Ellie Heydon shines with the fast-paced, excited dialogue in ‘Anniversary’…Jilly Bond has the distinction of narrating the two stories containing the most conflict, which includes her portrayal of a conversation between a mother and daughter whose voices are thick with tears as they discuss marriage in ‘Ghosts of the Past.’"
