This is a book written about 70 years ago, but for all that is relevant to a comparable situation today. A sterile marriage, where Grace describes it as 'stodgy and serving stodgy food'. I admit I found it a slow starter, but then the whole feel and the characters of the book envelope you. When I finished it I knew I really liked the book!

Brilliant, best book I've read all year 12 July 2008
By Kate Smart - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am currently discovering a group of female British novelists whose works have been incredibly underrated - namely, Elizabeth Taylor and Rosamond Lehmann. Had Lehmann been a man, no doubt she would have been hailed as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century; she is every bit as good as E.M. Forrster, D.H. Lawrence, or Somerset Maugham - all of whom I consider among my favourite authors. And yet, even my librarian had never heard of Rosamund Lehmann and had to pull her books out of storage. It is absolutely appalling that the literary world has consistently overlooked brilliant female writers.

Anyway, this book is a story about a depressed, unhappily married woman who becomes enchanted by a young man who is hired to work with her husband. It is incredibly well-written, at times very funny, always intelligent, and left me so very grateful to have discovered my now favourite writer. Excellent read, highly recommended.
