Petra Flint and Arlo Savidge were teenage sweethearts in a chaste, old-fashioned way. They never really told each other how they felt.

Now, years later, Petra is a jeweller by day, but by night she is a sleepwalker, never fully able to rest. Arlo is living in North Yorkshire, teaching at an eccentric boys' boarding school. Like Petra, he carries with him something that makes it hard to sleep at night.

In an ice-cream shop one rainy day, Arlo and Petra stand before each other once again. Is this their second chance? Isn't old gold as good as new? However, for love to blossom, they must finally put their pasts to bed - a past Petra can't quite remember and a past Arlo wants to forget. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 2/19/2014

    " The reviews I read were either fantastic 5 stars or horrible 1 star. I come down in the middle. It is a cute little story about first love rediscovered and conquering obstacles. Some complained about the sex, it wasn't that graphic or frequent. One downside for the American reader would be the "British" vocabulary. I was able to follow the story quite well with only the occasional pause to figure out a phrase or word. if the reader must know the meaning of each word or phrase, and is not English this might be a tedious book for them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelle | 2/18/2014

    " Started off quite slowly but I enjoyed the second half. Easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debra | 2/18/2014

    " What a fun, heartwarming love story! There were times I could actually hear an English narrator and I enjoyed that too. Rating it a four because sometomes the whole "setting of the scene" got to be a liitle much for me. But overall, this story is well told and vividly described. I'm going to look for more by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colette Flaherty | 2/8/2014

    " Thought it was a good chick lit book, but rather gushy too early on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/6/2014

    " lovely story Really good page turner "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shirley Campbell | 1/25/2014

    " Loved this book its not really a 5 but they don't have halves. Brilliant characters and storyline reminded me of my 30's so could feel for the main characters. And I learned about tanzanite which I didn't know existed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 1/21/2014

    " This book was rather okay. Petra finally meets up with a friend from 17 years ago and falls madly in love. However, both Petra and Arlo have lots of baggage to sort out. Eventually they realize they need each other's support to get through it. Very predictable plot and ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzannah | 1/21/2014

    " Enjoyed, good lounging in the garden in the sun book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 timesong | 1/20/2014

    " In my humble opinion this is Freya North's best novel. It has the perfect amount of mystery and suspense. The characters are wonderful the storyline is well thought out. Read beautifully- smooth yet rich and surprisingly deep for a fast paced story. Very satisfying -thanks Freya!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn Naughton | 1/19/2014

    " Fun summer read...totally Chick-Lit, but I loved every page of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/5/2014

    " It was ok. The title suggests it might be a little raunchy, but it's not at all. A little slow, but still sweet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/26/2013

    " Fun quick read- downloaded it for free on my Nook and glad I did. Actually learned quite a bit about somnambulism and tanzanite, too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi R. | 12/21/2013

    " When I started reading this book (a B&N Free Friday nookbook), I wasn't sure if I'd finish it. But, about a 3rd of the way through it began to redeem itself and held my interest the rest of the way through. It's a unique "love at first sight" love story that I ended up enjoying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 12/13/2013

    " I am giving this 3 stars only because the storyline itself was cute....other than that it would be around a 2.5 star read for me. It took me so long to get through it. Parts dragged..just a slow read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eunice | 12/5/2013

    " Lots of great descriptive passages. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melanie Chamberlain | 12/3/2013

    " Dumb. I don't care for books that have words everywhere "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 12/2/2013

    " British lit that is truly fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Juliahoney Kamenker | 10/12/2013

    " Excellent the romance is a little deeper than the title indicates "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rebecca Curtis | 9/19/2013

    " While I really liked the characters of this book I felt it was a bit anti climatic. I really wished it had not had to go to such a strange place. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly | 9/11/2013

    " It was okay. I got more of a kick out of the British-isms than the actual story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 donna | 8/28/2013

    " A lovely British chick lit novel about a sleep-walking jeweler who bumps into her first love while away in the country trying to get over her last lousy boyfriend. A fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheri | 3/22/2013

    " Really liked it , a cute , charming love story of two people that both have "baggage" but overcome it and move on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 3/14/2013

    " Fun, quirky characters! Easy enjoyable to read. Looking forward to reading more books by Freya North "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma Parker | 10/31/2012

    " amazing book. the story took a bit of effort at the beginning but once it got going it was great. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andrea Dillon | 10/11/2012

    " Wow I'm really not sure how this won any awards. I tried hard to like this but the plot was very boring and the love scenes were just awkward. I did like some of the characters but the overall was pretty bad. I definitely will be telling others not to waste their time on this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 7/12/2012

    " This was a free Nook book, and I was looking for something to read while I waited for a library book to come in. This was the perfect choice; not too intense, not too much of a romance (the characters are better than that),not stuck in the throbbing loins genre, just a nice light read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 6/29/2012

    " I have tried reading this book a few times but I cannot get into so I gave up on it. My son actually found this book hidden in a box under the bed Today I might give it another try ..let's hope i can get into it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Destiny | 4/28/2012

    " Funny, sweet, romantic. Not the best writing in the world, but the story and characters make that easy to overlook. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah (The Brazen Bookworm) | 4/20/2012

    " Eh. Lukewarm about this one. I just couldn't connect with the characters, though they were very likable. I'd be interested in reading other works by North, but this one was not something I'd recommend highly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 10/19/2011

    " Really a 2.5 ... Storyline was good, not great ... The author is very descriptive In both the countryside of England and the sex. I could've done without both and the story wouldnt have suffered at all. Positive side, I actually had to look up words and it's always exciting to learn new vocabulary! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anoolka | 4/9/2011

    " Lost interest about halfway. It's too slow moving for me. I might get back to it in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corinne. | 3/26/2011

    " It was a warm, relaxing book, and I liked it. It was about a woman and a man who find themselves after 17 years, and that's how a true love story (re)starts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frances | 2/5/2011

    " The subject was a bit close to home but it was an entertaining read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire | 7/9/2010

    " I found it hard to start with but it got there eventually. Not as good as her other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare | 6/16/2010

    " I can't seem to read these kind of books without having tissues close at hand. When Lillian McNeil dies, I could feel the turbulent emotions felt by Petra. I wasn't aware of the rarity of tanzanite and its limited supply. Some interesting facts included. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 1/10/2010

    " Quite good but the usual chick-lit romance of girl meets boy meets a better boy etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eve | 12/19/2009

    " I liked this one, it is your typical "chic lit" fair. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 12/1/2009

    " This is a good chick-lit summer read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anna Maria | 9/10/2009

    " This is not the sort of book I would ever normally read, but I got it free with a magazine and was curious. I am absolutely amazed that this book won the 'Romantic Novel of the Year' award - the characters are cliched, the plot is unimaginitve and the ending is wholly predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nellyna | 6/29/2009

    " Way to long... I would make this story 100 pages shorter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clara | 6/28/2009

    " It was a reasonably enjoyable book. I've read better romance novels, it was all a bit cliched and predictable, but was a good poolside read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzannah | 6/27/2009

    " Enjoyed, good lounging in the garden in the sun book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colleen | 6/22/2009

    " A nice mental break... not much to it but it was welcome respite from the deluge of required reading for college. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 6/21/2009

    " lovely story Really good page turner "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nell | 6/13/2009

    " I quite enjoyed this but I found the pov changes and the odd use of tenses jarring. It kind of reminded me of the Time Travellers wife. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 2/15/2009

    " formulaic, cliched, predictable and quite pedestrian. none of the big things hinted at at thye start turned out to be that interesting. it wasn't terrible but not good either. "
