In 1944 Henry Tillotson brings his new wife, Margaret, home to his farmhouse in the English countryside. Margaret is a strange, unpleasant woman, determined, it seems, to make Henry's life miserable. 'Poor Henry!' say his friends, as they visit at weekends and holidays. 'What an awful life he has!' But Henry is not at all the sad and disappointed man we might expect him to be. He manages to enjoy life, and indeed, has quite a lot of fun, one way and another...Mary Wesley's story takes a sharp but light-hearted look at love, sex, and marriage and the things people will do to get what they want.

The story, intertwining the lives of three couples, begins on a summer day in 1954 and ends in 1990. The lives of all are changed by that first day, and the story unfolds in an order that tantalizes our senses and heightens our enjoyment. This is not a romance novel (although the blurb and jacket might entice those readers); it is a novel of morals and morality set in an English country home. The narrator, Anna Massey, is a wonderful reader with a lovely voice and accent. Her voice is a pleasure to listen to although her differentiation of male voices is weak. As usual, Chivers does an excellent job with production values. E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
