Exquisite. Wonderfully observed characters. Real life humour, touching and absorbing. I would say sheer perfection, had it not been for a brief interlude early on which was didactic, feminist psychology. Imogen Church is simply the most accomplished narrator of them all. I love listening to her expression, emphasis, timing. When an exquisite novel meets the perfect narrator, there is a rare experience. It left me bereft to have ended. Eagerly awaiting the next Lisa Jewell.
