She has baked for the Brownies, delivered parish magazines, washed and ironed her husband's surplices and clothed herself and her children in jumble-sale items. When her husband fails to gain promotion to archdeacon and retreats into isolated bitterness, and the bullying of her daughter at the local comprehensive reaches an intolerable level, Anna rebels. She takes a job in the local supermarket where she earns her own money, her sense of self-worth, the shocked disapproval of the parish and the icy fury of her husband.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » The fourth of Joanna Trollope's shrewd, compassionate studies of English village life and family discord. Anna Bouverie, reluctant, rebellious wife of a country rector, cribb'd, cabin'd and confined by an untenable marriage to a disappointed man, at 42 breaks free, to the undisguised disapproval of her peers, to acquire her own eventual, painful, fulfilment. Joanna Trollope grows better with every book. (Kirkus UK)
