Mark and Tess had a good, solid, happy marriage. Of that they were convinced - and so were their friends, their family, and their three children. But as Tess prepares to leave the idyllic Cornish holiday house where they have just spent the summer, she begins to have doubts. Mark has already returned home with the two boys, back to the real world of work and meetings and money. Tess, alone in the house with her small daughter, knows suddenly that she dreads the homecoming. Where did it all start to go so horribly wrong? In this warm, intelligent and pertinent analysis of a modern marriage, Diana Appleyard has moved into a more mature and sophisticated phase of her writing, in which the reader sympathises with the very real characters and the dilemmas they face.
