Looking for the Durrells: A heartwarming, feel-good and uplifting novel bringing the Durrells back to life

Audiobook

At 33, after a year that has seen her break off her engagement to Bruce, her long-time boyfriend, and then the loss of her beloved father to cancer, Penny takes time off from her career as a children’s book illustrator to nurse her broken heart and loneliness. She flies out alone to Corfu to begin a month-long pilgrimage - planning to explore the island through the eyes of The Durrells, a curiosity she’s had about the whimsical family life on Corfu in the 1930s.

When she arrives, she is unexpectedly drawn into the secrets of the several strangers she meets.

With secrets and pasts only she can reconcile and secrets that pull her into the world of those who live and work around the Athena restaurant in the coastal village of St George South, Penny must reevaluate her own secrets. There’s Tess, the attractive, seemingly tireless widow who runs the place, to Alex, her little boy who lives for his animals and struggles to remember the face of the father he has lost. There are Guy and Rich, the seemingly carefree holiday reps, to Dimitris, the successful lawyer, now fisherman, who returned to his island and boat a decade ago - and then Nic, the Professor who carries the burden of a love he can’t share or voice. And then Lily, the waitress looking for a new start, but fearing it too.

As they share their hopes and fears on a journey that runs parallel with Penny’s exploration of The Durrell’s story, their lives become entwined in a way none of them could have imagined or predicted.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    Birgitta Lindh

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
