By E H Young


Set in the summer of 1939, this is a sharp and insightful observation of marriage and families. The layered story focuses on the neighbouring households of the Blacketts and the Frasers. The developing allegiance between the spirited Rosamund and the dutiful Bertha subtly exposes the realities of their marital experiences and desires. On the surface all seems very conventional but it soon becomes apparent that Bertha hates her self-centred husband.
