Don't be fooled by narrator Eve Matheson's lyrical, precise delivery. At its first note, this audiobook may seem formal, but the early impressions give way to great humor and superb character development. This gem of a novel revolves around Margaret, whose life has thus far revolved around her niece, daughter of her tragically lost sister. Margaret's responsibility is lightened when her niece embarks on a journey to visit her long absent father, and suddenly the world seems far more accessible to the novel's heroine. As the title suggests, it is time for Aunt Margaret to have some solitude and perhaps more than a little fun. This novel is addictive in its use of humor, description, and realistic dialogue, and Matheson's beautiful reading makes the story more alive and real. L.B.F.
