Notes & Reviews:
Venetia Lanyon, beautiful, intelligent and independent, lives in comfortable seclusion in rural Yorkshire with her precocious brother Aubrey. Her future seems safe and predictable: either marriage to the respectable but dull Edward Yardley, or a life of peaceful spinsterhood. But when she meets the dashing, dangerous rake Lord Damerel, her well-ordered life is turned upside down, and she embarks upon a relationship with him that scandalizes and horrifies the whole community. Has she found her soul mate, or is she playing with fire? Award winning Phyllida Nash has performed on stage in leading roles nationally, in London, New York and Toronto as well as on TV and BBC Radio 4 – roles ranging from Portia in Julius Caesar to Christopher Robin in Winnie the Pooh. Phyllida is at her happiest behind a microphone, whether broadcasting on Radio 4, voicing a film or narrating audiobooks – over a hundred and counting.
