Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth and Jackson Shore married young, raised two daughters, and weathered the storms of youth as they built a future together. But after the children leave home, they quietly drift apart. When Jack accepts a wonderful new job offer, Elizabeth puts her needs aside to follow him across the country. Until the sudden death of her father changes everything. Grieving and alone, she retreats to an isolated beach house where she packs away the last remnants of her parents' lives. There, the pieces of a past she never knew unfold to reveal a tender story of lasting devotion, the kind of steadfast commitment that Elizabeth admits is missing from her own marriage. Faced with her own disillusionment, she makes a terrifying decision, risking everything she has for a second chance at happiness.

Beautiful Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Distant Shores to be better than the print version?

I always like audible books better than reading a print version. I'm a multi-tasker and can't sit still long enough to read a print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Distant Shores?

The ending. I don't want to spoil the end for those that haven't listened to the book or read it, so I will just say that the ending is refreshing, loving and encouraging.
I am also and artist, so I was able to relate to the main character and her struggles in losing herself and fighting to find her passion again.

What about Bernadette Quigley’s performance did you like?

Wonderful! Loved the way she performed each character, especially the daughters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

You will enjoy this book whether you listen to it or read the print version. Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite authors and I have never been disappointed in any of her books

Narrator in wrong line of work

The narrator talks as if every part of the story is urgent and as if this speed provides drama and character embodiment. It makes it very hard to enjoy the story. I would never get an audiobook w/ this narrator again. I've enjoyed every Kristin Hannah audiobook until this one.
