  1. Evelyn Gresham is a distinguished barrister in his early fifties with a seemingly perfect life - a beautiful home, a son who adores him and an attractive, devoted younger wife, Imogen. It soon becomes clear that there is something lacking in the marriage but both parties seem to have come to terms with this. Imogen's world falls apart as her husband begins an affair with their nearest neighbour, Blanche Silcox, a tweedy, plain fiftiesh woman in every way her opposite. This is a novel very much of its time (early 1950's) as the attitudes and reactions of both husband and wife to the affair are so different from what they would be today. I found it quite hard to get past this as I was reading. However it is very nicely written and there are lovely things in it, especially Imogen's relationship with her son's friend who is neglected by his own parents.
