This is an auction for an audiobook of THE LAVENDER HOUSE by Hilary Boyd.

Read by Maggie Mash.

Hilary Boyd in her inimitable fashion has told the story yet again of mature love (My Weekly)

Boyd is as canny as Joanna Trollope at observing family life - and better than Trollope at jokes (Daily Mail)

A gentle but emotionally charged drama (Sunday Mirror)

I found myself instantly gripped . . . a romance in the Joanna Trollope vein (The Times)

Thoroughly enjoyable read . . . a real page turner (Good Housekeeping)

This story is engrossing . . . one of my favourite books of the year (Mature Times)

Poignant, well-observed and wonderfully written, this is a heartstring-puller (Closer)

Amazon.com review:

"Nancy de Freitas is the glue that holds her family together. Caught between her ageing, ailing mother Frances, and her struggling daughter Louise, frequent user of Nancy's babysitting services, it seems Nancy's fate is to quietly go on shouldering the burden of responsibility for all four generations. Her divorce four years ago put paid to any thoughts of a partner to share her later years with. Now it looks like her family is all she has. Then she meets Jim. Smoker, drinker, unsuccessful country singer and wearer of cowboy boots, he should be completely unsuited to the very together Nancy. And yet, there is a real spark. But Nancy's family don't trust Jim one bit. They're convinced he'll break her heart, maybe run off with her money - he certainly distracts her from her family responsibilities. Can she be brave enough to follow her heart? Or will she remain glued to her family's side and walk away from one last chance for love?"
