"A delightful novel of love and infidelity," about a couple married for ten years who have "a natural, easygoing relationship that had weathered several minor affairs (for each of them) and that seemed somehow 'right' in their sophisticated milieu. By contrast, the marriage of their two closest friends, Emma and Stanley Bonsor, who lived in a seaside cottage with their two delightful sons, appeared on the verge of coming apart at the seams. For Emma was tired of their shabby-genteel existence and of her husband's hard-headed determination to do nothing to improve it."
