Thirty years after The Shell Seekers swept into the hearts of readers across the globe, Rosamunde Pilcher's unforgettable saga appears for the first time as an unabridged digital audiobook. Masterfully narrated by Actress Hayley Atwell, this timeless story will captivate listeners from the very first track.
At the end of a long and useful life, Penelope Keeling's prized possession is The Shell Seekers, painted by her father and symbolizing her unconventional life, from bohemian childhood to wartime romance. When her grown children learn their grandfather's work is now worth a fortune, each has an idea as to what Penelope should do. But as she recalls the passions, tragedies, and secrets of her life, she knows there is only one answer...and it lies in her heart.
This spellbinding audiobook will draw listeners into a narrative that spans generations, examines the changing dynamics of a resilient British family, and captures emotional experiences ranging from loss to love.

I read this book some twenty or thirty years ago and remembered how much I enjoyed it but didn't remember why. So, going back again, but to audio now. I'm glad I did because the woman reading the story did so with immense expression and dignity.
In my younger days imagine my love of the story was a teaching of how to age with grace even with struggles and people you love not quite reaching your perceived Potencial. That still rings true for me now, but more so is that the lead character held onto her self, intuitions, and basic decency. This I take with me and am thankful for Ms. Pilcher's gift.
