Product Description

Anne and Edmund Cornhill have a happy marriage and a charming house. They are content, complete, absorbed in their private idyll. Arabella, who comes to stay one lazy summer, is rich, rootless and amoral - and, as they find out, beautiful and loving.

With her elegant prose the author traces the web of love and desire that entangles these three; but it is Arabella who finally loses out.

3.0 out of 5 stars At least the title is appropriate. 8 April 2013
By talmine
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the story of a childless couple (Anne and Edmund) who have been married for 10 years living comfortable & self satisfied
lives in a charming house on the river near somewhere near Henley on Thames. They are financially secure, Edmund being the the junior partner in an upmarket London estate agency.

Their lives are disturbed when Cara, Edmund's much married stepmother, telephones him from the South of France asking if he and Anne could look after her 22-year daughter Arabella for a time while she, her mother, on holiday with her latest husband, sorts out one or two marital prospects for her daughter. They accept her but inevitably a brief sexual relationship between Edmund and Arabella in their first week fouls things up.

Hilary Mantel enlarges on this plot (and the minor characters) in a concisely written introduction.

As the title suggest it is Arabella who eventually loses out. Literaturewise it is a beautiful piece of work, but I couldn't warm to it.
I prefer to read about real grief in the quality press.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth jane howard is the best writer around 8 July 2000
By A Customer
I started this book in a really jaded mood as I had given up about six previous novels in a row as I couldn't get into any of them. If I havn't got a book on the go I'm a real grump to live with! So it was with some relief(especially for my family)that I picked this one up.I've been a great fan of EJH's since I read about the Cazalets and since then I have found no one to better her writing.This was a lovely book,once again full of delightful descriptions about where people live and the food thet eat.When you finish any of her books you always miss the characters because she makes them seem so real.Anyway needless to say that when I finished this book.I no longer felt jaded and often look back fondly at it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not her best 24 Aug 2013

A rather shallow book which I could not finish. It felt a bit contrived and the narrative did not flow

1.0 out of 5 stars Completely spoilt 23 May 2012
By Rum
Format:Kindle Edition
This book in any other format is as outstanding as any other Elizabeth Jane Howard. However, this Kindle edition is totally spoilt by frequent typing errors and other wording mistakes presumably made by predictive text. A shame. Ms Howard deserves better
