    "Miss Silver mysteries are always a joy to read"
    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to every Miss Silver mystery that I can find. I always enjoy them.

    Patricia Wentworth has been compared to Agatha Christie with her Miss Marple creation. I think Ms Wentworth far exceeds Ms Christie in the well rounded mystery novel! I believe Ms Wentworth's character development is much better. The characters are well-rounded, likable (or not) with identifiable flaws, hidden integrity, hesitations, etc. Every one of the Miss Silver mysteries displays a different type of heroine. Some are likable, some not. Some are shy, while others boisterous. Some are responsible, some are flighty. Some die, some do not. It appears, that with this series, Ms Wentworth has made a great study in the infinite varieties of the human personalities.

    I can always trust the Miss Silver mysteries to also respect my "prudish" nature. I wouldn't mind my 12 year-old daughter reading them - there are not graphic scenes! But they are definitely adult novels.

    This particular novel displays the troubles thrust upon a very loving, but responsible young lady by an admiring uncle. She handles the situations with kindness and respect. There are also displays of the baser emotions: jealousy, greed and envy.

    I guessed the culprit in this novel (don't always!), but only toward the end. But I'm always amazed by the way Miss Silver arrives at her conclusions.

    I would recommend all the books in this series.
