Ladies of Letters | [Lou Wakefield, Carole Hayman]

Ladies of Letters

When Irene Spencer meets Vera Small at her daughter Lesley's wedding reception they embark upon a correspondence that is quite unlike any other in the history of letter-writing. Both Irene and Vera are happily widowed and endowed with errant offspring. They live in a world of church fetes and amateur dramatics, but love nothing more than dipping their pens in the vitriol pot - while remaining the firmest of pen-pals.

    "Delicious Entertainment"

    I passed a blissful hour during a recent coach journey listening to these two ladies ingratiate themselves with each other and then get prickly and wonderfully catty, returning full circle to keeping their friendship alive. What a great listen.
