I didn’t like this as well as the first 2 AT books I have read. It was way too similar in terms of character and plot. This is the 3rd book that a callow rather silly young man has fallen for a much older woman. Only in this one, the young man was pretty unpleasant. There were really not any lovable characters in this one, in my view, to rescue the not very interesting bones that the plot is hung on. Two families, one with scholarly parents and struggling financially and one fairly well off interact and find romance successfully and unsuccessfully. Also, there is a community play. It resulted in losing my attention from time to time while listening. I was happy to finish it.
