Teeming with marvelous, memorable characters in an audiobook that is a true masterpiece, Rosamunde Pilcher's Coming Home is a story to be savored, re-listened to, and cherished forever.
Set against the backdrop of an elegant Cornwall mansion before World War II and a vast continent-spanning canvas during the turbulent war years, this captivating story tells of an extraordinary young woman's coming of age, coming to grips with love and sadness, and in every sense of the term, coming home....
In 1935, Judith Dunbar is left behind at a British boarding school when her mother and baby sister go off to join her father in Singapore. At Saint Ursula's, her friendship with Loveday Carey-Lewis sweeps her into the privileged, madcap world of the British aristocracy, teaching her about values, friendship, and wealth.
But it will be the drama of war, as it wrenches Judith from those she cares about most, that will teach her about courage...and about love.
Wonderful characters against the back drop of WWII. Did not want the story to end.
The narrator gave an excellent preformance and made listening to the novel worthwhile.

if it weren't for spot of poor quality in the audio where the splicing changes volume dramatically I would have given this a 5-star review.

loved the history and perspective and stayed up way too late many nights listening to see what happened next...pleasant anticipation. except for literally only 3 small parts that seemed to drag I just shipped to the next chapter. Narrator was amazing
It is so refreshing to read an old fashion love story where all the characters you have come to to love have good things happen to them - despite living in the time of war. It made my heart feel happy.
Love this story, I couldn’t wait to get back to my book. The performance was outstanding.
Fall into total BLISS. There is no author like Rosamunde Pilcher for transporting the reader into another world.
Read and find yourself in each scene and so well acquainted with each character.
This is one of my favorite stories ever.
Thank you for putting it on Audible !
I have read this book multiple times since it was originally released. I loved revisiting this world with the narration of Helen Johns as narrator. A beautiful story of growing up, pre and post world war 2, and relationships. Rosamunde brings the messiness of life as well as the beauty in her novels.
Between the beauty of the story and the perfect narrator, you won’t want, Coming Home, to end!
Just loved this book - great characters, great storyline. It is set mostly during WWII and is believabl,e.
