Summary

A Question of Trust is vintage Penny Vincenzi: rich with characters, life-changing decisions, glamour, love, desire and conflict.

London, 1950s. Tom Knelston is charismatic, working class and driven by ambition, ideals and passion. He is a man to watch. His wife, Alice, shares his vision. It seems they are the perfect match.

Then, out of the blue, Tom meets beautiful and unhappily married Diana Southcott, a fashion model. An exciting but dangerous affair is inevitable and potentially damaging to their careers. And when a child becomes ill, Tom is forced to make decisions about his principles, his reputation, his marriage and, most of all, his love for his child.

Vincenzi at her best

Sandra Duncan is one of my favourite readers, and she certainly does this book justice. Excellent story, and very up to date although it is "vintage". Characters, as usual, are well defined, and there are some interesting twists in the story. I could not wait to finish it, then to re-listen. Vincenzi really is an excellent authoress, keep them coming please.
The story is interesting about the NHS and the waiting and why private medicine is so important. Simply love this story.

This is Vincenzi at her best. Characters to care about and engrossing story. She weaves an interesting social history into the story. Loved this book.

Not as good as previous books.....

Sadly Penny died before the book was finished so the ending was lacking her usual touch!

Brilliant as Ever

So delighted that this book was unabridged. I cherished every moment of the
wonderful narration, Sandra Duncan's tonal vartiation and timing are a joy to listen to.
Penny Vincenzi's story is as brilliant as ever!

I purchased this book as I do every Penny Vincenzi. I have tried and tried to get into it but just can't.
