Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1952

Over thirty and bordering on spinsterhood, Mildred Lathbury lives a quiet life in an unfashionable section of London until Helena and Rockingham Napier, an anthropologist and her flag-lieutenant husband, move into the flat below. Mildred captivates us with her wry, keen account of the roiling of new and old relationships. Juliet Stevenson's Mildred is outstanding. Equally impressive are her distinctive portrayals of the disparate and colorful characters. In Stevenson's reading, we're treated to vivid, comic, finely wrought theater.
