Publisher's 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.

Disappointingly boring

Knowing Vincenzi as an entertaining story teller I was very disappointed with this book. It never got going. Great voice of the reader, so if you don’t want to use your brain and just want to listen to a pleasant voice, this is your book

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!

Not for me

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

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.

Wonderful

Oh my goodness, I absolutely adored this book. I have long been a fan of Penny Vincenzi and am so sad that this will be the last book of hers to enjoy. The characters are deep and evolve throughout the book, especially Tom who goes through several life changing events. I also loved the political elements to the story. Although the book is long, it still didn’t feel long enough. The narrator is excellent too. Definitely give this book a try, get past the first hour and you won’t be able to turn it off.

Simply wonderful

When I started this book I just could not get on with the narrator ... but as the book went on I throughly enjoyed it! The narrator did all the different characters so wonderfully well it was like listening to a whole host of people. The story itself ..... true to PV style it was a great listen! For me this was a marathon listen and I enjoyed every minute of the book! It got to the point where my husband constantly told me to take my headphones out !! I recommend this book wholeheartedly!

Marvellous storyline beautifully read

Without doubt one of the best books I have ever listened to. Penny V weaves a wonderful web of intrigue throughout the lives of her hugely believable characters exposing their personalities over decades of time. As a read it would be “unputdownable” on this occasion is is read exquisitely by Sandra Duncan which adds to the fascination of each persons life and the trials and tribulations, aspirations and failures of each of their lives. Opens up the fragility of life and its challenges in a remarkable way as we weave through the plots to the final outcomes of their “real life” - no glossing over - experiences. A masterpiece enhanced by masterful reading.

Not as good as previous books.....

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