Publisher's Summary

It all comes down to love or money in a harrowing custody battle over a little girl, set against the glossy backdrop of the magazine and advertising worlds in 1960s London.

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.

True to form, Penny Vincenzi introduces a devious cast of characters seemingly plucked from the pages of sixties- and seventies-era magazines, as she deftly maneuvers between the glamorous, moneyed worlds of fashion and advertising, and a heart-wrenching custody battle going on in the courtroom where the social mores of the time are on full display.

    "Like a box of chocolates..."
    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.

    "Not a waste/not memorable"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    During the winter by the fire-yes it was a good book. If I had better things to do than I would have been dissappointed.


    If you’ve listened to books by Penny Vincenzi before, how does this one compare?
