9781447272397: Falling

Harry Kent is a sensitive man in late middle age, a reader and a thinker, without means perhaps but not without charm. Daisy has recovered from her unhappy past by learning to be self-sufficient, and viewing trust as a weakness. But there is still a part of her that yearns to be cared for once more. It is this part that Henry sees, and with dedicated and calculated patience he works at her defences. So it is that despite all attempts to resist his attentions, Daisy finds herself falling under Henry's spell...'Troubling, subtle and distinctive...completely unputdownable.' Miranda Seymour, Independent 'A superb storyteller whose elegantly written novels never fail to pull you in...she tells a taut and compelling story with a subtle build-up of tension that will keep the reader worrying till the end.' Sunday Express 'And engaging study of love which explores our deepest needs and desires.' Tatler 'I found myself seduced by her clever evocation of people and places, her perfect ear for dialogue and her elegant, sensitive portrayal of contemporary life.' Sunday Telegraph 'A novel which, although full of subtle touches, is as unputdownable as any thriller.' The Times

About the Author:

Elizabeth Jane Howard was the author of fourteen highly acclaimed novels. The Cazalet Chronicles - The Light Years, Marking Time, Confusion, Casting Off and All Change - have become established as modern classics and have been adapted for a major BBC television series and for BBC Radio 4. In 2002 Macmillan published Elizabeth Jane Howard's autobiography, Slipstream. In that same year she was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List. She died, aged ninety, at home in Suffolk on 2 January 2014.

From AudioFile:

British novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard, author of the acclaimed family-saga series, The Cazalet Chronicles, makes a successful stylistic departure in her new novel. This is a tale of romance told in the voices of two characters: Daisy Langrish, an emotionally vulnerable writer who buys a weekend cottage in the country, and Henry Kent, the charmer who offers to work in her garden. Both are over 60, and each wants something from the other. What they want and what they get--that's the crux of the story. The fine British actors Alan Bates and Diana Quick narrate the tale in alternating first-person chapters. The result is a pas de deux of nuanced, sympathetic reading. Henry Kent's charisma and Daisy's neediness are unforgettable. Neither Bates nor Quick attempts to create significantly different voices for the other characters who pass through the story, though Quick deepens her voice for one character, with mixed results. Instead the narrators create one true voice each for their own characters and capture the reader's imagination. A.C.S.
