In Whitehall, Giles Barrington discovers the truth about his wife, Karin, from the Cabinet Secretary. Is she a spy or a pawn in a larger game? Harry Clifton sets out to write his magnum opus while his wife, Emma, completes her 10 years as Chairman of the Bristol Royal Infirmary and receives an unexpected call from Margaret Thatcher offering her a job.

Young Kitty Charing stands to inherit a vast fortune from her irascible great-uncle Matthew - provided she marries one of her cousins. Kitty is not wholly adverse to the plan, if the right nephew proposes. Unfortunately, Kitty has set her heart on Jack Westruther, a confirmed rake, who seems to have no inclination to marry her anytime soon.

As a fan of Georgette Heyer a decided to buy the abridged version of Cotillion as it was the only one available - I usually only buy unabridged stories. I listened to a short passage to see whether I liked the reader and then made my purchase. I was extremely irritated when I discovered that, for some inexplicable reason, the producers had interspersed the dialog with loud music! Do they never stop to consider that most people do not wish the story to be suddenly interrupted by loud and undesired music between chapters! As I usually listen just before I fall asleep (and indeed use the "sleep timer" on my phone so that I am not disturbed if I fall asleep whilst listening) I find it very annoying to be suddenly roused by loud music. I have now relegated "Cotillion" to the list of stories I only hear whilst working in the house or garden. I shall in future listen to a longer "test" before deciding on my purchase!

When sixteen-year-old Sally is evacuated to the English south coast, she is terrified by what lies ahead of her. All she knows are the sights and sounds of London's East End – but Sally swallows her tears as they leave the familiar landmarks behind, knowing that she has to be a Grown-Up Girl and play mother to her six-year-old brother Ernie. Playing mother is nothing new for Sally – their real mother Florrie, a good-time girl, hasn't even come to the station to wave them off and Ernie, crippled at an early age by polio, is used to depending on his older sister.

Die Musik ist sehr lästig und einige Englische Namen falsch ausgesprochen. Die Geschichte ist interessant.
