Editorial Reviews

Narrator Teri Clark Linden has a slight huskiness to her voice that lends an additional layer of angst to this moody romance. Fragile Mel has just survived an unexpected divorce, leaving her skittish and wary of love. She restarts her life by buying a bed-and-breakfast on the Oregon coast called the Sea Glass Inn and finds Pamela Whitford, the artist who inspired her move in order to commission artwork for her new business. Pam has neglected her talent for years, fearful of the vulnerability that accompanies creativity, but something about Mel loosens the chains around her heart. The beautiful images Linden creates with her voice will linger in listeners' minds like Pam's paintings.

Publisher's Summary

After a life of wrong turns and lost hope, can true love be more than a bittersweet fantasy? Melinda Andrews arrives on the Oregon coast with a dream of running the Sea Glass Inn. Still reeling after an unexpected divorce, Mel believes she has missed her chance to find love. All she wants is to make her business a success and regain her independence. She locates the artist who inspired her move so she can commission more paintings for her new inn. Pamela Whitford runs a gallery in a small seaside town, planning events and supporting other artists while neglecting her own talent. Since being deserted by the love she thought was forever, she refuses to let anyone close enough to hurt her again. But Pam can't resist the struggling new innkeeper, and she agrees to paint for her even though it means opening herself up to creativity and the vulnerability that goes with it. Can they learn to trust again and discover a second chance at love?

one of the finest romances

Have listened to around 20 romances in the past 6 months, Sea Glass has to be one of my favorites. To the point that during a resent visit to the sea side I was busied myself for hours collecting different sand smoothed coloured glass from the beach hoping to use it in a craft. However after hours I only came up with five pieces. Enough rambling from me. story is very much a traditional with many elements of traditional romantic notations weaved into the characters and circumstances. Pam is an introverted artist who has lost her nerve to create while Mel has taken on a new life to repair and open for business and old sea side inn. The strength of this novel comes from the quality of the traditional romantic tale, as well as the detail in which the characters are developed, their fears, and conflicts. A lot of insight is provided into the creative struggle of the artist, which I can relate as well as the the drive to be successful in a new life. A very enjoyable novel and one of the few I plan to listen to again.

Pretty bog standard

This story turned out to be pretty much like a lot of lesbian novels out there. Basic idea being that one person is portrayed as straight, but then finds themselves attracted to another woman. This however was not the sum total of the story, because at least the 'straight' woman had known for some time that she was gay, and was only in the marriage for the sake of a son.

And with that you do get something that is a bit different to the other stories of a similar ilk.

The performance by the narrator wasn't too bad, but could have been slightly better at times when distinguishing between characters.

Am I happy to keep this in my audible collection? Yes, because although it doesn't stretch you story wise, it is alright to use on a day when you don't want to think about anything too hard.
