Lucy Honeychurch, an upper middle class girl, and her cousin, Charlotte, travel from England to Italy on vacation. While on the trip, the two women share a guest house with a man and his son George Emmerson. After switching rooms to offer the women a better view overlooking the scenic river, the Emmersons and Honeychurches get to know each other better. Mr. Emmerson suggests that Lucy and George may be a good match for each other. The two potential lovebirds have a chance encounter that evening that makes George seem like a hero, however, Lucy has to let him down gently and tell him that she is not interested in pursuing a romantic relationship with him.
Lucy and Charlotte leave the guest house lodgings and continue on with their travels where Lucy encounters another man, Cecil Vyse, who proposes to her and Lucy accepts. Once Lucy and Charlotte finally return home to England, and George learns about these occurrences, he objects to the two getting married and confesses his true love for Lucy.
Lucy soon becomes entrapped in a love triangle with the two men, and she must figure out which path she wants to follow.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
I didn't want to give ANY *s to the reading, but you won't let me give less than 1! The reader just gabbles as fast as she can, all on the same monotone, so your brain just switches off. I gave up after about 20 minutes. I have the book on Kindle, so will make do with that.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Didn't get that far! (I read the book years ago, but don't remember.)
Would you be willing to try another one of Sarah Genner’s performances?
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I'D LIKE MY MONEY REFUNDED PLEASE! I had 50 files in My Library from when I was a subscriber (which you seem now to have lost - I can't access them any more), and most of them were very well read - just a few less so, but none nearly as terribly as this!

This version's narrator needs a lot of work
What didn’t you like about Sarah Genner’s performance?
The narrator tells the whole story in the same voice for each person. Given that the book doesn't say who is saying what in many places, it is very hard to tell who is talking because of the reading. I'd advise on buying a different version! I tried to return the book and get a different narrator but Audible wouldn't let me.
