"The novel...was most enthusiastically admired by Henry James, and one can see
why, for it is most Jamesian...It marks the peak of her most brilliant period of creativity...And for us
it is a chance to see what can be achieved in the pursuit of moral truths."--Anita Brookner

A challenge to the moral climate of the day, The Reef follows the fancies of George Darrow,
a young diplomat en route from London to France, intent on proposing to the widowed Anna Leath.
Unsettled by Anna's reticence, Darrow drifts into an affair with Sophy Viner, a charmingly naive and
impecunious young woman whose relations with Darrow and Anna's family threaten his prospects for

The affair becomes the reef on which four lives are in danger of foundering: two of them innocent, and
two of whom are burdened with experience and tinged with desperation. This is a story of the drastic
effects of a casual sexual betrayal and a clear-eyed assessment of the possibilities and limitations
of human love.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cant do that as much as wed like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Its a common problem and its the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
