Publisher's Summary

2014. Nora has always taken success for granted, until suddenly her life begins to fall apart. Troubled by anxiety and nightmares, she finds herself drawn to the sweeping beaches of Tenby, a place she's only been once before. Together with a local girl, she rents a beautiful townhouse and slowly begins to settle in to her new life. But Tenby hides a secret, and Nora will soon discover that this little town by the sea has the power to heal even the most painful memories.
1950. Chloe visits Tenby every summer. She stays with relatives, and spends the long, idyllic days on the beach. Every year is the same, until she meets a glamorous older boy and is instantly smitten. But on the night of their first date, Chloe comes to a realisation, the aftermath of which could haunt her forever.
The Hourglass is a moving novel about finding love even after it seems too late and the healing power of a magical place by the sea.

Buy it!!!!

Such depth of character and a meaningful story that unfolded perfectly. Bah to everyone who didn’t like the ending, it was exactly as it should be, it ended as it began and that’s all you need to know in order to realize that everything works out. I’ll give it a month and probably listen again.

Great story, well delivered

The story line and narration were both superb. This delivery had some of the most consistent and accurate accents. Even male dialogue was well delivered. The scenery was beautiful and the characters were richly woven into a charming storyline.
