Publisher's Summary

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.

Enough, already!

This book dragged out painfully long. I don't think the main characters actually met up until chapter nine. Then they did the "should I, shouldn't I" dance for several more chapters. It was excruciating! The characters were likable enough, but after a while it was like "Enough, already! Just get it done!" Unless you are in to that drawn-out tension of "will they every get together" (and I mean, REALLY in to it), I'd say pass on this book and save yourself the frustration.

great story line!

This story line was so entailed. It is a very relaxing listen--which is perfect for bedtime stories. However, I listen when on my treadmill. It wasnt ideal for that--harder to follow the details. I havent read Freya North before. Definitely would read other stories by her.

Jewel of a Listen

I really enjoyed this lengthy listen on my journey to and from work each day. The heroine is believeable as Freya's characters tend to be, and as a lover of gemology I could tell she'd done her homework though don't worry that this is a book on the technical aspects of jewelry making because , put quite simply , it is a charming tale of first love .yes there are times when you feel you could bash the two main characters heads together because they get 'the wrong end of the stick' about something but this is how life is,this is how relationships are. So do Arlo and Petra live happily ever after ? Will her sleep walking get her into lots of trouble ? What tragic thing happened to Arlo's ex. You'll have to listen and find out.

Totally gorgeous

One of the nicest, most credible and grown up listens so far. Wonderful central characters that you can care about, and a nicely paced narrative that exuded warmth
