Book cover: “Henrietta Who?” by Catherine Aird (Doubleday, 1968); audiobook read by Robin Bailey (Bolinda, 2014)

A streamlined narrative whose drollness of dialogue Aird elucidates on the fly. Though the mystery doesn’t outstay its welcome, Henrietta’s lament rather does (“She’s not my mother!”). The focus on legitimacy, though period appropriate, seems oddly old-fashioned given the book’s publication date.
