Product description

Review

Spanning 60 years, Jones s deceptively casual, episodic novel is a warm-hearted dissection of a dysfunctional marriage: disappointing affairs, unfulfilled careers, chaotic children, incessant sniping and growing differences. Uplifting and astute, this should save marriages. --The Sunday Times

'A lesson, not in how to love, but how to make love last.' -Tim Pears

'Brilliantly observed and often very funny.'-Morag Joss

'A frank, earthy and drily amusing portrait of a marriage.'-The Herald

'Told from both of their perspectives, with a dash of black humour, it is an insightful book that reveals home truths about love. A compulsive read.' -The Lady

'Warm and funny novel...' --The Courier, Scottish Book of the Week

'An involving novel, both timeless and of its time, in which every dimension benefits from the author s wisdom and acute observations of love, marriage and human nature.' -Isabel Costello, On the Literary Sofa

'This is a brilliantly observed novel which provides insight into men and women and their attitudes to marriage. And whilst the couple at the centre of this story have been through a lot, their story is told with warmth, and a little humour.' -The Owl on the Bookshelf

'Jones' writing is perceptive and often very witty...it s an engrossing, utterly gripping novel.' -A Life in Books

'Jack and Milly s marriage is like the weather, with sun either too fierce or blocked by clouds. They inhabit a climate with myriad variations of hot and cold, seeming different from the inside than from outside, from morning or evening, when filtered through a prism of the promise of happiness or resignation to "for better or worse."'-Annecdotal

'This book is a unique and individual take on love and what it really takes to make a marriage last and what personal costs and sacrifices it takes to make it work. Tender and stark.'-Reflections of a Reader

'A very entertaining and thought provoking novel which many will find resonates, in part at least, with their own lives. It explores the roles each partner plays in the family unit in an effort to keep it whole and the sacrifices and selfishness that are individual to each. A very enjoyable read.'-Greenacre Writers

'After reading this book, it s my opinion that any couple who goes to a church or registry office to inquire about getting married should be handed a copy of this novel.' --Linda Boa
