Publisher's Summary

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.

Funny, sad, exciting and romantic

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

Would you consider the audio edition of Not That Sort of Girl to be better than the print version?

I love my audio books & would not consider reading print versions again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rose, she was always thoughtful of others although they did not always deserve it.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

At the hospital when Rose goes to collect Mylo, taking him back to her house along with her son Christopher & the dog.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Defiantly, it was a page turner for sure.

Any additional comments?

A war time love story.
