An extremely penetrating examination of a marriage. The structure of the novel leaves you wanting to revisit it immediately. I was a big fan of EJH since coming across the Cazalet novels and although this is a slightly more bleak take it demonstrates her superb empathy with characters yet again.

Extraordinarily affecting.... I did find the beginning difficult - the characters seemingly so estranged from each other and themselves.... But slowly EJH describes the events that have brought them to this place....

I love this story, as I do all of Elizabeth Jane Howard's novels, which I had read or listened to.
She has amazing insight into people, their motives and their behaviour. The characters are well delineated and totally believable. Mary Wimbush's narration is brilliant and I am so impressed the way she voices all the different characters.
This story would appeal to anyone who enjoys novels set in the beginning of the last century or those written by this author.
