Daisy Edgar-Jones and Alison Steadman team up as a fun, quirky grandmother and granddaughter pair in this lively narration. Leena is sent on a two-month vacation after work-related stress affects her performance. Her grandmother, Eileen, a divorcée living in the country, makes a deal to swap living quarters with Leena so Leena can get the rest she needs while Eileen looks for potential suitors in London. The two narrators, each portraying her respective character’s point of view, are a perfect match. Leena sounds genuine, kind, and sometimes dreary, while Eileen is quaint yet snarky. Other vibrant characters such as the ladies’ neighbors add to a flamboyant story that will entertain listeners. Edgar-Jones and Steadman are a winning combination.
