When Cora's mother whisks the family away for the summer, Cora must decide between forging her future in the glimmering world of second homes where her parents belong, or getting lost in the bewitching world of the locals and the mystery surrounding a lonely old woman who claims to be a selkie creature - and who probably needs Cora more than anyone else.
Through the fantastical tales and anguished stories of the batty Mrs. O'Leary, as well as the company of a particularly gorgeous local boy called Ronan, Cora finds an escape from the reality of planning her life after high school. But will it come at the cost of alienating Cora's mother, who struggles with her own tragic memories?
As the summer wanes, it becomes apparent that Ronan just may hold the answer to Mrs. O'Leary's tragic past-and Cora's future.

It Happened One Summer!
I loved this audio edition! I would have mis-pronounced many words had I read this in a book version.
Nothing to compare it to.
I loved the way Wendy did all the voices. Mrs O'Leary & Cora's voices fit them to the T. The narrator did great on the teen voices!
It Happened One Summer...
Wow, What a great story! The plot had me guessing the whole time. The ending was great! I wouldn't have guessed that ending. What a surprise!
Could not stop listening
Learning to Swim was very engaging. Both the intricate development of the story and characters kept me wanting more.
I really loved the portrayal of Mrs. O'Leary and the use of myths and legends throughout the story. It really did create a marathon listen for me.
Great switch between characters, first time I have listened to a performance by Wendy Pitts. Cannot wait for her next volume.
