Then she started thinking, about the man she'd married, and how well she really knew him. About the carefree yet studious girl she had been before she met him. Twenty years ago Rose had to make the choice between two very different lives. Could she recapture what she nearly chose back then, and bring new meaning to her life now?

"Wise, melancholy, funny and sophisticated, Buchan's novel is more satisfying than a romance." (The Times)
Avid reader but quite new to audio books.
Told mostly in narrative form, the story lacks the passion and drama that interpersonal dialogue would have added.
This is a classic of its type, real characters, genuine emotional depth and touching in the detail of the experience. Should be read with 'The Second Wife' which is the other side of the story and brings a true resolution.
