Book Description:
Sidney and Cecilia are best childhood friends who are forced to part for 5 years. In that interval, Sidney Bidulph - an undoubtedly good and dutiful woman - writes to her friend about everything: her marriage, her children, her other friendships and, above all, about her great love for Mr. Faulkland. In an amazing and unforgettable way, this book shows us that the road to happiness is not always clear - and that sometimes doing what seems to be right is not really the right thing to do. With Rachel's lovely reading, we see her - Sidney Bidulph - as she was meant to be, and as she really is.

Subject: Definitely fiction!
I listened to this reading because if was in the non-fiction category. (It is actually a work of fiction!) No human personality could bear up under the myriad of catastrophes that the author heaps on the heroine. Practically everything bad that can possibly happen to her does. Even the ending affords only the portend of more tragedy to come, though mercifully the author leaves it unwritten. Very depressing indeed!
