9780060806279: Long View (Perennial Library)

From the bestselling author of The Cazelet Chronicles comes Elizabeth Jane Howard's The Long View. Moving backwards in time from 1950 to 1926, The Long View paints an unusually revealing portrait of a marriage. It traces the lives of Antonia and Conrad Fleming through the eyes of Antonia, as she looks back on her married life and unravels her choices - good and bad - and the motivations behind them ...An uncannily authentic take on matrimony from the long view - from both the outside in and present to past - Antonia and Conrad Fleming's story is as extraordinary as it is prosaic, as gut-wrenching as it is exhilarating.
