This engaging story explores the unexpectedly intense emotional life of a woman in her sixties. The plot is very cleverly constructed with numerous tributaries that connect in odd ways. Sometimes I had to suspend disbelief but my misgivings were skillfully managed. Josie Lawrence is very good indeed. She reads with wonderfully diverse accents and a rich baritone for the man ( who I found the least interesting character) She throws herself into every role with her well known exuberance and is sometimes very funny even though it is quite a dark tale.
I was never sure of the outcome and listened happily in long stretches. Ultimately the book feels a bit contrived
And more like a film plot than a novel.

I've read and enjoyed a lot of books by this author. This was the worst! Self indulgent, going nowhere, failure to live up to its promise. Hard to finish but I did!
