In the summer of 1947, Kate Herrick, widowed by the war, returns to Rose Cottage, her childhood home. A tiny thatched dwelling nestled in an idyllic country setting, Rose Cottage at first appears the picture of tranquility. But Kate soon discovers that someone has broken in; the papers that are the object of her have disappeared, and the village seethes with gossip. How harmless are her elderly neighbors, who are suspected of witchcraft? And what is behind their reports of nighttime prowlers and ghosts in the cottage garden? Determined to uncover the truth, Kate seeks the help of childhood friends and neighbors. Her quest leads her along a trail of family bitterness, jealousy and revenge- and into an exploration of her own past. Along the way she finds true happiness in her humble beginnings and discovers romance where she least expects it.More

A beautiful classic
Easy listening Mary Stewart.
No, I do not consider the audio edition of Rose Cottage better than the print. For me, it is just more convenient as an audio book. Mary Stewart is a long time favorite and I enjoy an easy read (or listen) that warms the heart and reduces rather than makes stress.
A familiarity, as if you know the characters personally.
Lady Brandon, because older people have so much more life experience to share.
Mary Stewart is always a good read.
