Ladies Of Letters.Com by Carole Hayman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is absolutely delightful! I have the audio book and could listen to it again and again. (Actually, I did repeat it on a 600 mile drive and found it just as entertaining the second time.) If you love Patricia Rutledge in the BBC comedy "Keeping up Appearances," you will love her in this.
It is the ongoing exchange of letters and email between two old friends. The ladies are very different, but were friends from their youth on. The comedy is subtle in some spots, so read or listen to it slowly to pick it up. There are subtle jibes and a bit of posturing that keeps the plot moving as the nature and character of the women unfolds. There is no narrator or prose to fill in details, so you only learn about them through their own words and it is masterfully done.
