How should a nineteen
year-old virgin respond to being treated by her first lover with
a self-denying restraint she never expected? And which matters
more to an adulteress friendship or fidelity? To these, and
other aspects of romantic (and not so romantic) love, this novel
has provocative answers. A tale of enduring passion and
emotional immaturity illuminated by the tolerant acceptance of
human frailty. The farcical and the serious, the poetic and the
sensual, the philosophical and the earthy, all contrive to make
an unlikely whole. Frances is intelligent, enraptured, yet
fraught and scatty. And Daniel? Read on
And discover how an
impossible situation is resolved to the satisfaction of everyone
including Detective-Inspector Blazer. But will the solution last?
What will happen now to the local chapter of Adulteresses
Anonymous? Both a celebration and an affectionate satire.
Touching, funny, enchanting..
