Publisher's Summary

Charlotte Fairlie is a successful, elegant career woman. Still in her 20s, she has landed a job as headmistress of her old school. She is admired and liked by both staff and pupils - but she begins to feel there is something missing in her well-organised life. Then one summer she goes to stay with a young pupil on the remote Scottish Isle of Targ. In the romantic atmosphere of the Highlands, anything can happen - and even the cool, efficient Charlotte surprises herself...

A good "read"

I read this book a number of years ago but didn't remember a lot of the details. It is delightful, as all the author's books are. The reader did an exceptionally good job. I appreciate Audible.com having books by authors like this who are not necessarily known by the mainstream of listeners.

Career or romance

D. E. Stevenson is an author who is unsurpassed at creating believable characters that the reader cares about. Charlotte Fairlie is a delightful book about a woman who is a success in her career, as head of an English girls school. Then a chance for romance enters her life. What choices will she make? But the story of Charlotte is only part of this book. The secondary characters, both the good and the bad add to the delight of this book. And Hilary Neville does a great job bringing the characters to life. Listen to this book, then look for other books by D.E. Stevenson. Her world is a delight.
