    A privileged girl from a privileged class, Eliza has a dazzling career in the magazine world of the 1960s. But when she falls deeply in love with Matt, an edgy working-class boy, she gives up her ritzy, fast-paced lifestyle to get married. By the end of the decade, however, their marriage has suffered a harrowing breakdown, culminating in divorce and a dramatic courtroom custody battle over their little girl. Also at risk is Eliza's gorgeous family home, a pawn in the game, which she can't bear to give up.

    If you could sum up More Than You Know in three words, what would they be?

    you know you shouldn't, but ...yummy, yummy, yummy.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Vincenzi knows how to draw you in and keep you there.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    An important part of the structure of a work such as this is the flaws inherent in each of the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No way can you listen to one of these sagas in one sitting. It's an experience to be savored slowly and deliberately


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone who is nostalgic for past times spent living in Britain is susceptible to Vincenzi addiction. Small details = vivid recollections, and past suddenly becomes present. Proust's Madeline.
