Publisher's Summary

Jim and Milly. Stan and Jane. Jonathan and Fiona. Winter, 1959: Three married couples: each living in England’s Lane, each with an only child, and each attending to family, and their livelihoods - the ironmonger, the sweetshop, and the butcher. Each of them hiding their lies, disguising sin, and coping in the only way they know how.


What the Critics Say

"The tone is chatty and intimate, which makes the dark spots all the more chilling." (Times)
"By turns hilarious and disturbing, it is the best novel I’ve read this year." (Daily Mail)
"Vibrant tragicomic slices of cosmopolitan Englishness." (Independent on Sunday)

Most Helpful

Not enough of a story to keep me interested.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one, not enough of a story, too broken, too much back and forth in the minds of the characters, unnecessary comments. Over all a pathetic book.

What was most disappointing about Joseph Connolly’s story?

The whole book!

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narration by Nigel Peevers poorest of any book I have listened to.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?


Any additional comments?

Don't spend the money!
