One's nightmare comes true

Alice, brought up by hippy-chick mother Joscelyn in a commune in Cornwall, has reacted against her upbringing by becoming the kind of person who writes lists, labels her bedlinen by size and lives in up-market Richmond with her second high-achieving husband and their his-and-hers family. Then she hears that her mother is not well and her brother and his wife, who resent having to cope with her and her lifestyle, need help. When she arrives in Cornwall every bone in her well-regulated body revolts at what she finds there but whilst she tries to correct the worst problems she finds that she is questioning her marriage and the relationships she has with the family. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and its reading.
