Narrator Rosalyn Landor brings dignity and subtle humor to this sweet “at-long-last” romance between lifelong neighbors. Although their families are practically intertwined, differences in age and disposition keep Billie Bridgerton and George Rokesby at a polite distance until circumstances cause each to view the other in a new light. The even pacing of Landor’s narration illuminates textual detail and gently underscores the author’s wit. Landor’s precise characterizations cue the listener to Billie and George’s slowly developing attraction over the course of days and weeks. Landor knows how to ramp up tension with a precisely timed conversational pause and perfectly delivers the catch in the throat that accompanies the shy thanks of a girl at her very first ball as she receives her very first compliment from a boy.
