Old Rose And Silver


Read by Daryl Wor

(4.6 stars; 36 reviews)

The novel follows the lives of Rose and her widowed Aunt, Madame Francesca Bernard, along with young visitor and cousin Isabel, whose lives are changed by the return of an old friend and neighbour Colonel Kent, and his grown son, Allison. Other characters that help shape their lives in significant ways are the Crosby twins, unconventional and uninhibited youths that set society at naught, and an unconventional doctor who specializes in the impossible. Through the limited "wide-scope" descriptions the reader is not sure of the historical setting or even in which decade it's set, but it helps to understand the focus of the story; after all it's about their own little world, and how their own hearts and lives fit together in the tight confines of their town, their garden, their friendships and lives.

Reviews

Great characters!


(5 stars)

Excellent reading. Some really interesting characters, well drawn. I love the twins! It's worth listening just to follow the exploits of the twins.

Unbelievable and unreliable characters


(2 stars)

Reader did ok. The author made the characters act 20 years younger than they really were. SPOILER ALERT The 21 year old twins talking and acting like 6 year oldsyear olds? The 40 year old heroine looking likelooking like 20

Lovely
