9780060391027: A Village Affair

Alice Jordan seemed to have the perfect life - a loyal, if dull husband, three children, two cars, and now a beautiful 18th-century building with its orchard and paddock. So why did she feel that something huge, something crucial was missing?

About the Author:

Joanna Trollope, a member of the same family as novelist Anthony Trollope, is a #1 bestselling author in England.

From Library Journal:

In 1977 Alice Meadows marries Martin Jordan to escape her parents' seedy house and join his glamorous and prosperous family. Her painting flourishes. By the mid-1980s, Alice finds herself with three children, a plodding husband, and a picturesque house in a "much sought-after village" near Salisbury. However, she exists in an emotional vacuum and can no longer paint. Then the local squire's daughter, Clodagh, arrives to awaken Alice to passion and artistic rebirth. The women's affair shatters Martin and scandalizes the village. Eventually Alice rejects eveyone, including Clodagh, and decides to support her children through her art. Because Alice is so tiresome and self-absorbed, most readers probably won't care whether she succeeds or not. The strenght of several minor characters cannot compensate for the tedium of considering Alice's woes.
