Publisher's Summary

Set in the 1930's, this is the story of three people caught up in a tangle of love and hatred, which threatens to tear them apart forever. Handsome, wealthy and fair-minded, Luke Hammond could have the world at his feet. Instead, he has the world on his shoulders.Consumed by sadness, Luke's only respite from his respectable life is on a Tuesday, when he heads off to seek solace in a hideaway deep in the calm heart of the woods. Locked in his thoughts and dreams, living his humble 'Tuesday' life, Luke's quiet sadness intrigues Amy Maitland, a bright young woman whom Luke seems at first not to notice. Amy finds herself wondering more and more about this elusive man. But Amy worries too about Daisy, her beloved best friend, who masks the misery of a difficult home life behind her carefree hilarity. Amy knows that under the bravado and humour there is a desperate woman, searching for stability and love -- seemingly at any cost. Calling Luke her 'Tuesday Man', Daisy falls head over heels in love with him. Although he's aloof and appears to have little time for romance, she means to have him.

Lovely for summer listening

I very much enjoyed listening to this audio book.It is not the sort that I would usually read, but a friend recommended another book by this author which I did read and enjoyed, so thought i'd give this a go on audiobook.
It was great to listen to while doing boring chores. I could emerse myself in doing the lawns or dishes on autopilot while I listened to find out what happened to the characters, who they were interacting with and how seemingly random people ended up interacting with eachother. It really reminded me that people know eachother through communication and love. This book also has a twist that shows how intertwining hearts come back to eachother in the end. It has heart renching moments and loving moments, a must for people who like a rollercoaster of emotion in books. It did have a couple of slower sections but these do have story info so it is good to keep listening.
