Publisher's Summary

Unlike the other residents of Middleton Hall, Stella is elegant, smart, and in control. Only Jenny, her care assistant, knows that she harbours a painful secret, and only she can prevent Stella from carrying it to the grave.
As the women talk, Jenny pieces together the answers to many questions that arise: Why has she kept possession of a house that her family don’t know about? What happened there that holds the key to a distant tragedy?
As Jenny uses the house to meet her lover, she makes some unusual discoveries, but only when Stella leaves Jenny her tape recorder, into which she has recorded the true events of the past, can the truth be finally - and shockingly - revealed.

Bored at the end.

Juliet Stephenson's narration was superb. main characters likeable, just found the story didn't have any excitement. Might stick with Ruth Rendell from now on.

Stevenson For All Seasons

This is a novel I've read a couple of times before, but Juliet Stevenson's narration really brought it to life. The story of Genievive (Jenny) Warner, a care home worker and Stella, a dying resident, were voiced by Stevenson to highlight both the similarities and difference to their respective lives. A truly great story of love, regret and loss, set in and around the fenland of rural Norfolk.
