Some of the characters in this story are entertaining and have their own voices, such as Princess Melika (Pussy), and Guy and Philip's father, Rudi. Some are merely sketched in, such as the French hosts and children. The main 'voice' is Sophie's analytic ruminations between (and sometimes during) her various encounters. The author's voice is an unusual one. Usually 'show, not tell' is a good precept in writing, but here the 'telling' after a revelatory dialogue, isn't always what the reader would expect. It isn't clear what will happen in the Sophie/Philip relationship, and it isn't always clear which outcome would be best. This makes for an intriguing read. It makes me want to find another book by Rosemary Tonks.
