Angela Fytton -- wonderwife and supermother -- has been unceremoniously dumped by her husband. Like many a good wife before her, she has been replaced for a younger model. Now, divorced but determined, she rediscovers the iron in her soul and decides to fight. She moves to the country, leaving her entirely selfish teenage children with their father and his sweet new bride, and waits. One day, she knows, her husband will return. Meanwhile, she yields herself up to the notion that country life is pure and good and country people are next to angels -- and finds that this is very far from the truth....

Mavis Cheek is the author of eight previous novels. She lives in London with her daughter.
Although the jacket design is reminiscent of a hip Grandma Moses and the title suggestive of a gardener's how-to--this production is grand. Mrs. Fytton has made a perfect life for her husband who, one day, leaves her for a younger woman.Mrs Fytton's method of coping is to sell her London house, move to the country, and donate her adolescent son and daughter to her husband and his new wife. Phyllida Nash is the model of the word "perfect." Her reading is exquisite; the tone she gives each character is recognizable throughout the book. She must have felt delight at creating their voices because she imparts that glee while she reads. Don't let the package put you off. This audiobook is pure entertainment. J.P.
