This novel takes place in the south of England in a lovely large home filled with servants and guests on the wedding day of Dolly and Owen. But the harebrained bride and groom may never seal the deal. Miriam Margolyes is a witty performer who can really deliver the story’s comedic punches. Her portrayal of the entire cast is terrific: Robert and Tom, the entertaining brothers who spar with madcap absurdity; Mrs. Thatcham, the homeowner who has difficulty managing her own staff; Dolly, the bride with cold feet who takes a nip or two; a former suitor who suddenly shows up; the confused groom; and many others who are equally peculiar. Margolyes doesn’t miss a cue or a breath. Delightful! B.J.P. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
