The choice to have the author read her collection of entertaining letters to her sister Victoria was a good one. In 1982, Stibbe worked in London as a nanny in the home of book editor Mary-Kay Wilmers. Stibbe's subdued but engaged reading brings out every emotion as she reveals the mundane, intimate, and humorous details of life with the Wilmers family and friends, who included the famous playwright Alan Bennett. Stibbe's vocal inflections reveal that she's enjoying reliving her memories, and her tone makes the reading sound very authentic--as if one is listening to a friend read a private and fascinating diary.
