What could happen if marriage partners don't really listen to each other and hear what the other one is saying.
"An excellent escapist listen"
I loved this novel and for a couple of days the lives of the characters completely took over my life. If you enjoy the novels of Joanna Trollope and Penny Vincenzi then this is definitely worth a listen. It's obviously not a literary novel but it certainly rises above standard chick lit and Hilary Boyd writes a very convincing family story.
"Absolutely loved it!"
The characters were well drawn and the story zipped along at a great pace. It was a joy to listen to, due to both the quality of the story and to the quality of the narration. In fact, it was some of the best narration I have heard. The reader had impressive ability to adopt age appropriate voices and just the trace of a South African accent for a character who originated from there, but had lived in Britain many years.
I loved that the main characters were in their 50s and 60s rather than the usual 30-somethings. It was also spot-on regarding the issues of anyone divorcing after a long marriage and finding love again.
Haven't heard other performances.
Yes and I managed to listen to it over just 24-hours as I couldn't put it down (the first audio book that has had that effect on me).
