Jim and Milly. Stan and Jane. Jonathan and Fiona. Winter, 1959: Three married couples: each living in England's Lane, each with an only child, and each attending to family, and their livelihoods - the ironmonger, the sweetshop, and the butcher. Each of them hiding their lies, disguising sin, and coping in the only way they know how.

"The tone is chatty and intimate, which makes the dark spots all the more chilling." (Times)"By turns hilarious and disturbing, it is the best novel I've read this year." (Daily Mail)"Vibrant tragicomic slices of cosmopolitan Englishness." (Independent on Sunday)
The narration by both Nigel Peever and Brigit Forsyth was the most irritating narration it has been my misfortune to listen to
Something by Millie Johnson or Sheila O'Flanagan, Erica James or Carol Matthews
The part where the butcher chopped up the blackmailer. This voice was the worst of all and sounded like something out of Dickens
Don't waste your money or credit. I wish I hadn't.
"Not enough of a story to keep me interested."
No one, not enough of a story, too broken, too much back and forth in the minds of the characters, unnecessary comments. Over all a pathetic book.
The whole book!
Narration by Nigel Peevers poorest of any book I have listened to.
Don't spend the money!
