Publisher's Summary

This is Jane Austen updated, a sparkling novel of love, marriage, and manners.

The Rubin daughters are three eligible sisters from an affluent suburban Philadelphia family whose well-meaning but domineering mother is single-mindedly determined to see them all happily married.

Reminiscent of the work of Laurie Colwin, This Side of Married is a brilliant, ironic, domestic comedy of manners. Full of surprises, yet filled with feeling, it is a witty, intelligent, and utterly delicious novel.

    "Jane Austen Updated? NOT"

    I expected so much more from this book, it was disappointing. I mean, when you mention Jane Austen.....I expected some brightness and it only seemed blighted. I found it hard to like any of the characters, they were not developed well and the story was sluggish. The only reason I finished it was I was on a business trip and had not downloaded anything else.

    "Book has to compete with bad narration"

    I have tried to listen to this book several times. Every time I try to listen, the narrator's mouth noises make me switch to another book. I can't tell whether she has "dry mouth" or too much spittle, but I hear it with every word. Sometimes the narration is only due to poor editing, but it is impossible to listen to this book. I think I will have to read it on paper.
