Don't let the scandalous title fool you: MARRYING THE MISTRESS is no ordinary romance novel. In fact, this finely wrought, complex story could capture any reader with its description of the Stockdales, an extended family deeply impacted by betrayal at the hands of its patriarch. Reader Lindsay Duncan's crisp, accessible English accent gives each character personality and dimension. Guy Stockdale's decision to leave his wife of forty years for a much younger woman raises a multitude of issues and emotions for three different generations in the family. Hearing it all unfold through Duncan's vocal interpretation is a delight. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
