Summary

Bella Parkinson is the most promising actress in London, bright, sexy...and hopelessly scatterbrained.
Rupert Henriques is dashingly handsome and wealthy enough to buy her every theatre in London if she wanted it; he cannot wait to marry her. But Bella has a secret from her past - and the one man who knows it is about to come back into her life again....

Book written in the 60s!

This book was written in the 60s, is very much of its time and therefore it is inappropriate ( as other reviewers have) to compare it to Jilly Coopers more recent books. It has romance and then some very unexpected twists and turns. The narrator copes with these admirably and has a nice tone and pace as well as good characterisation.

I couldn’t listen to this book...

The recording is so slow.
If I set it to a faster speed, it became too fast!
I simply gave up...
I will be returning this book
