A love affair...between Matt Shaw, self-made property tycoon, and Eliza Clark, dazzling fashion editor and one-time Deb of the Year. Their story spans sixties London, the extravagance of Milan and the lovely decaying country house that has been in Eliza's family for generations, and the source of huge trouble itself.
A marriage...Passionate, and difficult, the conflicts increased by social as well as professional pressures, Matt and Eliza's lives become irrevocably divided and entwined with others: Jeremy Northcott, charming, successful advertising man; the beautiful, flamboyant Italian fashion icon, Mariella Crespi; Matt's sister Scarlett, with her own complex love affairs. And then there is Louise, Matt's touch and sassy business partner, as successful as him and fighting for her own future.
A child...Emmie, adored, precocious, and ultimately the victim of her parents' doomed marriage, she both holds them together and drives them apart. The decision...which is agonizing and desperate, and taken in the divorce courts - where truths will be told, secrets revealed and reputations shattered.
And, at the heart of it all, lies the fate of a little girl.

what a great listen....I found myself looking for chores to do since that is when I listen to books on my iphone. Gripping emotions grab you from the beginning and hold you to the end.
The narrator does a great job voicing all of the characters with their different dialects and accents and timbres so that you have no trouble telling the difference between them. I strongly recommend this listen!
