"Narrator Susan Bennett maintains the fine line between realism and magical realism in Jude Deveraux's romantic novel. Three women of different ages--Olivia, Kathy, and Elise--meet in a Virginia summerhouse to discuss their failed romances. Separation, indifference, and cruelty evoke regret and longing in the women. Bennett speaks with the savoir faire of a seasoned narrator. She brings experience to Olivia's recollections, sardonic understanding to Kathy's, and a growing self-awareness to Elise's, always matching Deveraux's tone of yarn-spinning enchantment. It's a treat to hear a romance that speaks to various life experiences, and Bennett bridges the age span with humor. This is a sexy romance to share with grown-up daughters, mothers, and grandmothers, equal parts charming and insightful. C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
