Rex believes a man needs more than one woman. Hazel doesn’t agree with him. This is the story of their marriage, divorce and subsequent on-off affair.
The War over, Rex and Hazel and Alan and Margaret go to East Anglia to make their lives. Rex is a poet, Alan a farmer, and they and their wives bring clashing political allegiances to the sleepy village of Farthingale. At the beginning of the new decade Rex founds his poetry magazine Review 50, and Alan starts what is intended to be a pacifist farm.
When Rex leaves Hazel in 1960, Alan and Margaret find her an abandoned old farmhouse and she and her children move in. This is about their plans, ideals, the compromises with reality, and what happens through the 1960s and 70s as their children grow and have their own ideas of freedom and peace. Rex’s view of his daughter Lynnet’s injunction to ‘Make Love not War’ differs from hers. His two wives have babies within months of one another and he glories in the epithet of male chauvinist pig.
Here unfolds the conflict between men and women, mothers and daughters, and about the nature of Freedom, the constant struggle for it, and how that struggle affects human relationships.
