Celia marries into the publishing house of Lytton and soon shows that she's a brilliant businesswoman in a time when women were meant to stay home and tend the children. Twenty years in Celia's life, before and after WWI, are covered, with narrator Carrington MacDuffie doing a terrific job, crossing class and gender lines with ease, never striking a false note. MacDuffie's performance adds richness to Vincenzy's characters, including Celia's opinionated mother, her dynamic sister-in-law, a poverty-stricken family, and a sexy author. With behind-the-scenes wheeling and dealing in the publishing business, romantic manipulations, infidelities, and the ordinary stuff of daily life, MacDuffie's superb reading treats listeners to a series of engaging plots and subplots, fascinating characters, and a strong sense of time and place.
