Publisher's Summary

Archie Logan, a country doctor, and his wife Liza lead an orthodox-seeming life, and everything is well until Archie's father, a widower for over 30 years, falls in love. His choice, a woman of powerful charm, has a profound effect on all the Logans, adults and children alike. The house and family turn from being a refuge to being a cage. Archie and Liza risk losing everything they have built. A Passionate Man is about a man's mid-life crisis and a woman's fear of failure. It is about fathers and sons, about sex and love, about loyalties and identities. It is also a story about modern village life.

Loved every minute of it!

Eleanor Bron is such a delightful narrator- the story was a pleasure to listen to from beginning to end. It was rather like a warm shawl around you on a pleasant but slightly chilly British summer evening.

Not the slightest pause between scenes

When scenes change without the chapter changing too, there is absolutely no pause in the reading, so it takes time to realise the story has moved on. The characterisation of voices is good, however. I was not impressed with the 2 main characters - both act stupidly and a bit selfishly. Generally a rather depressing book - not one of her best.
