David Collins comes back from the War with new ideas about the old established certainties of class and culture. As the austerity of the forties gives way to the boom of the fifties, he grasps his opportunities and within a decade has left his drawing office in a Birmingham factory for a director's office in a London advertising agency. Only his wife, Mary, a girl who yearns for a comfortable, ordinary marriage, is uneasy. But David is an honourable man -- he could never leave her. Until, that is, he meets Sally . . .

About the Author:

Allbeury was a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Army Intelligence Corps. After the war he worked in sales, advertising and radio before publishing his first novel.

From Booklist:

David Collins, a Birmingham native, spends his early years working in a foundry as a laborer and then as a draftsman. When his country goes to war, he goes too. After World War II, he returns to Birmingham, but the life that once excited him now seems dull. He moves his family to London, where he becomes a highlevel advertising executive. But still nothing excites him--until he meets Sally, who will surely turn his life upside down. This novel, first published in Britain in 1986 but appearing in the U.S. for the first time, is a change of pace for Allbeury, who's best known as a spy novelist. But the Birmingham native, who worked in a foundry, went to war, and then worked in sales and advertising before publishing his first novel in 1971, certainly knows what he's writing about here, and the novel is altogether engrossing, a real treat, not only for his fans but for lovers of "family drama."
