Wives and Daughters is a sensitive coming-ofage tale set within a provincial town in Victorian England. Having lost her mother at a young age, Molly Gibson's entree into womanhood and navigation of the adult world of attraction and relationships is stilted. By contrast, her stepsister Cynthia emanates selfconfidence and is bolstered by her conniving, opportunistic mother. By unhappy mischance, Molly falls for the very man that the vivacious Cynthia has set her sights on. However, as events unfold, the deceptive nature of appearances becomes apparent and a dramatic reversal of fortunes occurs. In the tradition ofJane Austen, Wives and Daughters is a captivating novel of social observation, humour and touching romance. Patience Tomlinson is an experienced audiobook reader and presents this novel with a steady, comfortable assurance.
