This contemporary British novel is the witty and warm tale written of two couples and the problems of their families. Both men, who were best friends in the '60's, are living with women twenty-five years younger. The production is excellent. The narrator is well-chosen for her quick British accent and her very contemporary voice. She changes her inflection for the different characters and never panders to the traditional, and not always successful, way of portraying men's voices deeply and women's voices shrilly. This is the second book of Trollope's that Bron has read, and it's a very successful interpretation--the results are easy to listen to and bring out the poignancy of the story.
