    Story
    (84)

    Lou Winter is a lonely woman who no longer realises she's being taken advantage of - whether by her mother or unfaithful husband Phil. Then one day she spots a magazine article on clearing clutter. What begins as an earnest spring-clean soon spirals out of control. The more Lou lets go of, the more light can get to those painful places at the centre of her heart.

    Jan says: "Really enjoyable."
    "Inspired change for me!"

    Where does A Spring Affair rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best. Have listened twice. Light fluffy feel great story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Totally engrossed me and inspired me to have a clean out myself.


    Have you listened to any of Colleen Prendergast’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. She is very consistent and lovely. Easy to understand even though the phrases are new to me (being from the States).


    If you could rename A Spring Affair, what would you call it?

    Not sure. I like the name.

    Story

    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    Jeanine says: "Could not stop listening"
    "Funny but disorganized."

    What would have made Girl Walks into a Bar... better?

    Some editing of repeated phrases. Better organization of the story as a whole.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Rachel Dratch again?

    Probably not.


    What aspect of Rachel Dratch’s performance would you have changed?

    Her performance was good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Girl Walks into a Bar...?

    Just the multiple repeated ideas and phrases.


    Any additional comments?

    I do love her work.

    When three South Yorkshire friends picnic on top of an ancient fertility symbol, who could have known that within four months they would all have their own eggs fertilised! For Helen, pregnancy is a true come true. But the more the baby grows inside her, the more she can see her outwardly perfect marriage crumbling. For career-woman Janey, it is a nightmare. How could it have happened? She had her husband George, ecstatic at the prospect of being a dad, were always so careful over contraception.
