Listing Detail Tabs

Ruthie was lucky. Her home was beautiful, her husband, Roy, steady, reliable and easy-going, her three children healthy, a handful but on the whole manageable. Her mother, a willing baby-sitter at any time, lived just around the corner, and her father was always ready to put his hand in his pocket to help her finances.

'You're the sort of person that lives happily ever after,' someone once told her during the war when Roy was overseas and she, together with thousands of other young wives, wondered whether she would ever see her husband again. And when Roy came home and they had picked up the threads of normal living, everything seemed to verify that story-book description of her. Except for occasional spells of ennui when the round of household chores became burdensome, she felt she could with every justification count herself among the luckiest of women.

Then all at once everything changed. Suddenly she was jerked out of the comfortable, secure little rut she had grown used to and in one nightmarish week in Chicago all her rosy visions of herself and her marriage were dispelled. There, in a series of unnerving experiences, she was confronted reviewing all her former values and judgments concerning love, happiness and, above all, her own relationship with her husband in the light of a crisis that threatened to undermine not only her marriage but her whole existence.

This is one of those lovely old books - ex-library plastic coated for protection - read and handled, discoloured and marked - ex library book with all the usual stamps etc.
