Jay, a contented middle-aged wife, mother, and half-owner of a home-cleaning service, finds that her 20-year-old daughter is making her a grandmother and that her cousin Delphine, her girlhood nemesis, whom Jay has always resented for her perfect and refined life, is returning home from several years of living in Australia. The story has the style of what Bridget Jones's life may be like twenty years down the road. Trudy Harris’s reading adds authenticity to the contemporary British setting with subtle variations to indicate dialogue. The brisk cadence of Harris’s reading and her British accent may take some time for American ears to become accustomed to. D.T.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
