For the whole of Rose's respectable married life, she had kept faith with two men. To Ned she was a perfect wife, mother of his son, and elegant hostess of Slepe. To Mylo, Rose was an impetuous and unconventional mistress, answering his erratic and impassionate calls throughout 50 years of tactful duplicity. After Ned's funeral Rose looks back on a life of dual constancy, passion, humour, and the ambiguities of love - and chooses her future.

Another great read by Mary Wesley well-performed by Anna Massey. Interesting tale about society and people during wwII. But the best thing was following the heroine from adolescence to old age. Very much enjoyed her character and story.
"A lovely war time tale"
I love my audio books & would not consider reading print versions again.
Rose, she was always thoughtful of others although they did not always deserve it.
At the hospital when Rose goes to collect Mylo, taking him back to her house along with her son Christopher & the dog.
Defiantly, it was a page turner for sure.
A war time love story.
"An excellent story"
You think you know people, but they turn out not to be what they seem!
"What a little gem of a book"
A passionate and at time's spicy book. It was well read and moved at a fast pace. Kept me riveted to the end.
