Review by

Oddly bleak and unfocussed, the story of two marriages, an older couple and the younger generation whose lives are all turned to chaos when one husband decides to leave one wife. Nicely written but it hops about from person to person and generation to generation - which might be what life is like however art demands something more. Not my favourite Joanna Trollope.
