About this title


Classics, modern fiction, non-fiction and more. Written for secondary and adult students the Oxford Bookworms Library has seven reading levels from A1-C1 of the CEFR. In 1944 Henry Tillotson brings his new wife, Margaret, home to his farmhouse. Margaret is a strange, unpleasant woman, determined, it seems, to make Henry's life miserable. 'Poor Henry!' say his friends. 'What an awful life he has!' But Henry is not the sad and disappointed man we might expect him to be. He manages to enjoy life, and indeed, has quite a lot of fun, one way and another...Mary Wesley's story takes a sharp but lighthearted look at love, sex, and marriage - and the things people will do to get what they want. CEFR B1/B2 Word count 15,100
